    Wireless Hard blcoked

    Despite this issue being so common (after long search) I am still unable to fix it.

    Kali 2 is the host. No VM
    There was no issue during installation, it detected the wife networks and was able to connect
    There's a button/switch on my keyboard that toggles Airplane mode. Toggling that button hard-blocks everything (bluetooth and so) but toggling it again removes hard block from everything but 0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN remains blocked.
    The machine has Windows installed and Wifi works fine.

    Code:
    root@F84:~# iwconfig
    lo        no wireless extensions.
    
    wlan0     IEEE 802.11  ESSID:off/any  
              Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=0 dBm   
              Retry short limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
              Encryption key:off
              Power Management:on
              
    eth0      no wireless extensions.
    Code:
    root@F84:~# rfkill list all
    0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
            Soft blocked: no
            Hard blocked: yes
    1: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth
            Soft blocked: no
            Hard blocked: yes
    2: hci0: Bluetooth
            Soft blocked: no
            Hard blocked: no
    3: phy0: Wireless LAN
            Soft blocked: no
            Hard blocked: no
    Code:
    root@F84:~# lspci | grep -i "network"
    02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 3165 Plus Bluetooth (rev 99)
    Code:
    root@F84:~# uname -r
    4.13.0-kali1-amd64

    Thanks! This solved the issue!

    I had tried putting those on the file but I didn't know the right name.

    Code:
    blacklist acer_wmi
    blacklist acer-wmi
    blacklist wmi

    for me this worked :
    sudo modprobe -r ideapad_laptop

    you might have to put acer_laptop
    or whatever is it called
    just type in : sudo modprobe -r
    in google and your laptop model it should say whats the name that you have to write
