Comment 1 John W. Linville 2012-04-23 14:38:48 UTC
Can we see the complete dmesg output?

Can you be more specific about the problem?  "Wifi broken" may seem descriptive, but it really doesn't point in any particular direction.

I'll send the complete dmesg output later the day.

It's actually quite strange, it really looks like the interface just doesn't come up.
Obviously it's detected correctly but the NetworkManager just says wireless network was not ready.
