    The normal way to switch on wifi is Fn+F2(in windows) . No other key/switch other than this

    Attaching the result and some screen shots again

    wlp3s0 IEEE 802.11 ESSID : off/any
    Mode : Managed Access Point : Not-Associated Tx-Power=14 dBm
    Retry short limit : 7 RTS thr : off Fragment thr : off
