I am running Fedora 35 on an MSI GS65 Laptop, after switching from Manjaro KDE. This laptop does not play very well with Linux. After the I close the laptop lid, the wifi is hardware blocked when I open it. I have already done the fix mentioned in here. This re-enables the wifi, which is awesome, but it refuses to connect to any network. It will be stuck in a loop of constantly trying to connect to wifi. I don’t know what details I should be showing to help solve the issue - sorry, but I will try to provide as much detail as I can.
Any help would be appreciated, I really like Fedora but this is really killing my productivity.
Have you done a full
sudo dnf upgrade to ensure that all the latest modules, firmware, and software are onboard? If not then please do so and test again.
If the issue continues after the update then we will need more info about the system before we can provide any additional assistance. Please post the output of
inxi -Fzxx in the </> Preformatted text tags found above so we can see what hardware is installed and the related driver info.
Welcome to the askfedora community and we hope to be able to assist.
Thank you for the reply. I ran sudo dnf upgrade and nothing needed to be updated.
Here is the output from inxi -Fzxx:

I have an update on the situation. I think there was an update for the kernel (not sure if that really affected anything) but I can now “reconnect” to the wifi. The wifi settings claim that I am connected to the wifi network, but nothing on my web browser loads. I have no idea why this happens.
If you don’t mine to disable the suspend action when the monitor lid closed, may be you can avoid the problem. There some report on internet that said the wifi won’t able to work after the lid closed.
To disable it:
# Create folder `/etc/systemd/logind.conf.d`
sudo mkdir /etc/systemd/logind.conf.d
# Create custom config
sudo cp /etc/systemd/logind.conf /etc/systemd/logind.conf.d/
sudo nano /etc/systemd/logind.conf.d/logind.conf
# Find these two parameter, uncomment it and set to ignore
To make sure everything work, you can reboot it first.
Thank you for the suggestion. There was a recent kernel update and it actually fixed this issue now.
