I bought Lenovo Y550P laptop yesterday. After installing aptosid I got big trouble: wifi doesn't work. I tried to connect through Ceni but it says after scan: "Could not set interface wlan0 flags: Operation not possible due to RF-kill".
Here's "rfkill list" output:
      Code:
0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
1: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: no
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: yes
Hard blocked: yes


I did "rfkill unblock all" and here's "rfkill list" output after that:
      Code:
0: ideapad_wlan: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
1: ideapad_bluetooth: Bluetooth
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: no
2: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes

I think, problem is in last row. Although I don't know what is phy0 and why is it hardware blocked.
My wifi module is
      Code:
06:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

How to solve this problem?

AR9285 should basically "just work", however you're encountering an rfkill issue - are you sure that the rfkill switch on your notebook is not triggered? Otherwise you could try "rfkill unblock 0".
