Total system freeze when opening wifi settings.

Postby Sharp » 2017/09/05 04:00:14

Hi, I've been having some serious issues with wireless internet on my laptop running CentOS.

The laptop is a Lenovo W530 thinkpad. I've tried reinstalling CentOS a few times, from multiple images, in case that was the issue, but it seems not to be.

When connecting to certain wifi networks, or when attempting to open the wifi settings on any network, the system freezes entirely. It's a bizarre place to crash, and I'm not sure what could be causing it.

Please let me know if there's any additional helpful information I can provide.
