I have installed SL 7 on a Lenovo Yoga 2 and have to figure out how to enable my wireless driver. I have been searching literally all morning and have tried many, many different things.

1.) It's a Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 [168c:0036]

2.) ath9k drivers are present

3.) ifconfig -a gives me a wlp1s0 interface which matches the MAC address of the internal NIC.

4.) When I run #rfkill list all it tells me both ideapad_WLAN and ideapad_bluetooth are both hard blocked.

5.) There is no radio kill hot button on the computer, and I have also attempted Fn combinations.

6.) Wireless is enabled in the BIOS

7.) This laptop cannot be hooked to the Internet but need WiFi to connect to internal WLANs.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated, and make my weekend much more glorious.

Found a great resource here Wifi_Fix

It's working, I just have to edit the /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file every time I want to change SSID's...luckily It will only be one for my purposes.

Had to make a few edits due to the systemctl changes from RH6 to RH7 commands and file locations....
