Wi-Fi hardware switch

Thu Feb 22, 2018 11:30 pm

I am trying to reanimate my old MSI X340 laptop with decent OS. And here is the problem i had to face - lapton is using old WiMax technology with Intel WiMAX/WiFi Link 5150 adapter and FN+F8 keyboard shortcut to swith/turn off between Wifi/WiMax, but keyboard is not functional anymore. Without it OS wrote about hardware switch been turned off and only Airplane mode avaible in Settings.
On Windows 7 i found MSI app which allows to send signal to turn on Wi-Fi via software, but what can i do on Solus to make Wi-Fi functional? I do not care about WiMax.
