Almost any Linux distro will have an on/off for the wifi(I used mint 11...18 gets an error message). Yes it works with a broken switch, every time, and unless you unplug or deplete the battery , the wifi stays enabled in windows (7 or 10, anyway) I have 4 of these and 2 have broken switches....all 4 respond to the Linux switch.

SOURCE: Broken wireless switch... wireless is stuck on "off".

Im not sure if there is a workaround for that when the switch is broke but hold down the FN key and press the F4 key and see if that activates the wireless card. If not then you need to get that switch replaced. Hope it helps.

Fn key combo for acer aspire 3680 wlan when wireless switch broke


Ok, i dont know exaclty how to do this, but look for a wireless icon, or something that looks like a wireless representation on the F keys. ex: "F10, F11". Press FN and that key to turn on\off your adapter.
Wish i could help more, Good luck

Load wireless att card on my aspire 3680


Is the wireless card activated? there should be a switch on the laptop or you might have to press the FN button along with one of the Function keys (F5 for example, it should have a wifi logo on it).

If this is active then got to your network configuraton and make sure the card is enabled (right click and enable)

If it isn't there then it needs installing with the driver disk
