Running Ubuntu on a laptop? Annoyed by your flashing WiFi light?

This is such a serious #firstworldproblem you probably don’t even know what I’m talking about.

That’s OK. Wait for the next post. Google will bring my Linux-loving geek friends to this one.

It’s a pretty easy fix on Ubuntu 14.04. Create a file called /etc/modprobe.d/wlan.conf with this inside:

options iwlwifi led_mode=1

And reboot. Your WiFi LED should stay on when you’re connected. Without blinking.
