Partner organization:

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. > Agreed. A graphical user interface would be
very nice for tuning the LED > behavior. I suggest to open a feature request at
[2] for that. > >Thanks, > Helmut
