Trouble with Atheros card (Fedora 14)

Hello all.

This morning I installed Fedora 14 on my laptop. During the setup, I was able to configure the wireless connection and use it to install additional software from the FreshRPMs and Livna repos. When the install was completed, I was surprised to find the wireless not working.

When I click on the NetworkManager icon at the bottom right corner, I see "Wireless Networks" Under that it says "device not ready" and it is greyed out so it cannot be click on.

Running lspci -vnn returned
07:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5001 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01)
Kernel driver in use: ath5k
Kernel modules: ath5k

Running lsmod confirmed that ath5k is in fact loaded. I'm stuck. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thank you very much for replying quickly.

The output is as follows:

0: hp-wifi: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
1: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no


So the next question would be "How do I remove the soft-block?"
Thanks again.

okay. issued "rfkill unblock all".

now rfkill list returns:

Hard blocked: no
Soft blocked: no

Following a reboot, everything working perfectly.

Thank you very much for your help.

[SOLVED]
