I tried to disable the wireless functions at boottime like Lekensteyn described here: How can I keep a wireless card's radio powered off by default?
But it keeps starting enabled after a reboot!
I added the command to /etc/rc.local by running
sudo nano /etc/rc.local
Used the arrow keys / page up/down keys to navigate to the line before
exit 0 and add
rfkill block wifi, so that the file end like this:
# By default, this script does nothing rfkill block wifi # for debugging: rfkill list > /tmp/wifi-state.txt exit 0
/tmp/wifi-state.txt I can see that it was blocked right after the call in
rc.local But if I call
on the console, it shows that WiFi is enabled again:
0: phy0: Wireless LAN Soft blocked: no Hard blocked: no 1: hci0: Bluetooth Soft blocked: yes Hard blocked: no
I added this to disable bluetooth it works fine:
rfkill block bluetooth
sudo rfkill block wifi
works fine on the console
