ThinkPad E450 F8 Key (WiFi on/off) Does not work, wireless adapter connects/disconnects

I've installed all of the most recent drivers I could find, the F8 key's functionality to turn WiFi on and off still does not work.

 

Also, the adapter goes through some strange disconnect/connect loop. It will try to connect and simply fail, or rapdily connect and disconnect and eventually stay connected.

 

 

There is nothing wrong with the routers around, because every other device works fine. Being in the IT department, we'd hear of an issue as well. This is also a newly ordered laptop.

 

 

I can't figure out what do to or find any resources that have potential solutions to this.
