Recently I installed Arch Linux on a laptop with a dead battery. It must be plugged in at all times for it to work. My plan was to keep it plugged in.
I did not realize that rfkill exists to prevent the wifi from using the last bit of battery power in the event it runs very low on a laptop.
I can't prove it here, but I have got the WPA2-PSK to work. The system sees it, but there is a hard block from rfkill on it. Again, probably because it sees that the battery is out of power.
Using "lsmod": iwldvm -> iwlwifi -> cfg80211 -> rfkill.
Is there a way to stop iwlwifi from calling rfkill? Or can I fool the system into ignoring that it is a laptop or that the battery is dead?
