Good answer and it worked for me. Now Fn F5 works for the first time. It's just a pity that when the computer is awakened from sleep mode there is no internet access and when I go through control panel, system and device managers there is a yellow exclamation mark against  the Broadcom wireless network adaptor and it shows an error code 43. I can fix it every time by disabling and enabling but why does it happen when coming on from sleep mode.


I had hoped that Fn F5 would have allowed me to switch it on if it was off but in fact it shows as on and switching off and then on makes no difference, but Hey, one problem solved!
