i resurrected the machine to life with debian 32 bit. all worked fine (proprietary wifi drivers installed) but suddenly wifi got disabled. rfkill shows hw block on the device.

now i am sure i have pressed the right button for the wifi (right and over the main keyboard) but nothing happens. did a bios restore of settings but still the wifi is disabled. using xfce.

please if you have any hints i should try let me know.

Its usually the Fn key and another button.

according what i have red on the internet for the acer aspire 1xxx it should be a single button (satelite dish) which is located above the usual keyboard (a row of 4 buttons). but yes i also tried to press all the Fn buttons with the Fn button. nothing happens...
