Subject: eeepc-acpi-scripts: Wireless toggle Fn+F2 on eeepc 901
Package: eeepc-acpi-scripts
Version: 1.0.5
Severity: normal

*** Please type your report below this line ***
With Fn+F2 I could switch off the ra0 interface on my eeepc 901, but not switch on permanently (just a few seconds). I found, that the modprobe command for the wlan-module and the ifconfig-command in wireless.sh are the reason. Ra0 already exists, when they are invoked. Maybe because I use network-manager-kde and auto ra0 in /etc/network/interfaces. After deletion of these lines I can now toggle on and off the Ralink-card on my eee-pc 901.
