Intel Wifi 5300 AGN freezes Dell XPS when pressing wifi button
I have a Dell XPS 1640 with an Intel Corp. PRO/Wireless 5300 AGN wifi card. When i press the radio on/off button, fedora goes to a screen with the fedora logo, starts blinking the caps lock and becomes completely non-responsive to keypresses or mouse. I have to shut it down after.
So, how do I make the radion on/off button work correctly?
