    Not sure I understand, “put of wirelesslan” ?

  • put of your wireless connection, by disconnect it from internet …

  • you got a hybrid chipset for wireless-lan and bluetooth, and there is a problem if both are running maybe…

  • That link you posted earlier did not work, can you paste the correct link? As I said, running this before Gnome 3.26 (few months ago) I was having NO issues with bluetooth + wifi together.

    Will try your suggestion out shortly.

  • only a side note, may you have an hardwre switch to disable bluetooth?

    No hardware switch for bluetooth or wifi specifically on the XPS 13. Works fine in Windows 10 install.

    Something strange between these two outputs.
    Where are files iwlwifi-8000C-33.ucode or iwlwifi-8000C-32.ucode?
    System is trying to use them as it seems.

  • Hey @joekamprad,

    I did another restart (before turning off my wifi radio) to see if maybe something didn’t get set correctly. It appears to possibly have started working now, output below:

    Output:

    Maybe the last change with the iwlwifi.conf fixed things? The wifi is still currently enabled and ACTIVE.

  • @a4orce84

    Nice!
    Reboot is the mother of all problem solving (after fixing things first!) ;)
    EDIT: rephrased ;)

  • creating iwlwifi.conf needed reboot to get loaded…

  • @a4orce84
    If it continues to work, do you feel this thread can be marked as solved?

  • So it’s ‘broken’ again (sorry guys)! I went back to the Bluetooth Settings GUI (under the Systems Settings Menu) to see if maybe that would start working also. I switched bluetooth off and on through the Bluetooth Settings GUI, and it didn’t work.

    So rebooted, went back to the command line to make sure it still worked there, and now I am getting the ‘No default controller available’ error again…strange.

    I guess the issue STARTED because I messed with the actual Bluetooth Settings Menu, but now the command line method is broken again…just trying to understand the ‘why’ here and not blindly accept the fact that it was fixed.

    Thoughts?

  • @a4orce84
    Full reinstall and don’t mess it up anymore? ;)

  • I ALREADY did a full reinstall, few days ago…remember this:
    https://forum.antergos.com/topic/8205/broke-dual-boot-system-windows10-and-antergos

    This is on a FRESH install of Antergos (with all the latest updates) that I did on Monday (today is Wednesday).

  • @a4orce84

    What about the files that you modified to fix the problem, do they still have the new corrected values?
    Was iwlwifi.conf the only file you modified?

  • Gnome Bluetooth is messed at the moment…

  • Can you repaste the link you were trying to share earlier @joekamprad ? I’m assuming there are more details about Gnome Bluetooth in there that you were trying to share?

    Checking all the files, it looks like everything is still in-tact.

  • @a4orce84
    Have you tried to fully shut down the machine, not just reboot? Would that help?
    Since Gnome and/or the firmware is so unstable, any magic might help…
