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.

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.
