Ubuntu 10.10 starts the wifi led in blinking mode.

At first this feature is nice, but after few hours it annoyed me a lot, so I found a trick to stop this annoying blinking.


Simply add the following line to /etc/modprobe.d/wlan.conf

options iwlcore led_mode=1

to do this, you can open a terminal window and then you can issue the following commands:

# sudo -s

# echo "options iwlcore led_mode=1" >> /etc/modprobe.d/wlan.conf

# reboot


or you can open the /etc/modprobe.d/wlan.conf file with your favorite editor and then you shall add the new option.
