Switch off wireless Tags: Wireless Switch Last response: April 23, 2011 6:49 PM in Linux/Free BSD Share amdfangirl April 23, 2011 8:37:27 AM Hello, Is there some kind of program or app that can shut down my wireless in Linux Mint 10 when I'm not needing it? My laptop doesn't have a physical switch, just a Fn+ shortcut. Using a Broadcom a/b/g/n wireless card of some sort, not quite sure, but I have a Lenovo x120e netbook.
