I just replaced my pci-e ipw3945 due to it was faulty with a brand new iwl4965 card, but my wifi switch in the front has stopped working, and I can't seem to un-kill the card in any way.
I am running ubuntu 7.10, and it does recognize the card. I can even sudo modprobe iwl4965 and still no luck. Maybe it can be done with aceracpi or acerhk?

Update: dmesg says RF kill switch is on, but the rf kill switch has stopped working.
I am a student at the University of Aarhus in Denmark, studying Computer Science, so the wireless connection is a must-have if I am to get any work done on my laptop. Help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
