Wireless light blinks all the time

Feature state

Rejected Information


The LED blinking is very distracting and needs to be controlable.
The LED blinks when traffic goes through the wireless card. However you can
configure the LED behavior in /sys/class/net/wlanX/device/leds.
For example something like

echo none > /sys/class/net/wlanX/device/leds/*TX/trigger 
echo none > /sys/class/net/wlanX/device/leds/*RX/trigger
echo none > /sys/class/net/wlanX/device/leds/*assoc/trigger
should deactivate the blinking while traffic is received or transmitted. Just
play with the LED triggers to get the desired behavior.
This is a work around for a few people not afraid to muck with such things
but a GUI user interface to turn this on/off will be needed for most people.
I think we need YaST options in the wireless network area to tune the
LED behavior.

Novell doesn't have any resources to fix this in openSUSE 11.2. But we would definitely welcome patches!
