On the original keyboard is (better: was) a key combination to Switch WLAN on or off.
Regrettably this keyboard is broken and now I use a wireless keyboard without this function.
Have you checked to see if Scroll Lock on the USB keyboard simulates the Fn key?
MX-17.1 x64, on C2D, 6GB RAM, SSD.

with my MSI laptop mx 17 wifi doesnt work ( along with other problems)

MX 16 WiFi works fine - no need to use FN + F11 ( in my case) to turn WiFi on or off - network manager does this fine. May take a little time but it works.

Now running MX 16 again - see my other recent posts r this MSI laptop.
