Airplane Mode On Thinkpad 11e 5th Gen Ububntu 18.04

Hi. I installed Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS on Thinkpad 11e 5th Gen and it worked fine. But after it was turned off and on Airplane Mode displayes On and WiFi correspondingly is off. The system reads I have to use hardware switch to turn Airplane Mode off but I don't see it. Well, there is a key F8 which hints on relation to networking but it doesn't work. Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: Airplane Mode On Thinkpad 11e 5th Gen Ububntu 18.04

Hi: The problem seems unsolvable at the moment. And, BTW, 11e 5th Gen _is not_ compatible enough with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS -- in my case built-in network card does not work and it is known mulfunction on Ubuntu forums. I had en extensive communication there and the final conclusion is: The problem is in BIOS. This machine has predetermined feature which does not allow Linux related drivers to control PCI network card. Now, the question is whether your BIOS team is going to upgrade system so that it becomes possible to work with Ubuntu or not? Could you connect me with them? Thank you.

And we're back...
