    I'm having issues with my TongFang GK5CN6Z original keyboard, so its flat cable is disconnected for now and I'm using an external USB keyboard. I disabled WiFi some time ago using the original keyboard (FN + F4) and now I can't enable it back again. Is there a way to enable WiFi using an external USB keyboard?

    does it show up in device manager? if you right click it you should be able to hit properties and then go to the driver tab and you can enable/disable. If not you could try to download the wifi driver from whichever manufacturer you bought it from on another device and reinstall it using a USB stick. Hope that helps!

    The WiFi driver is installed and enabled, its just on power off. In device manager I only have the option to disable the driver. Tried to disable/enable the driver but didn't work. In Windows 10 settings there is a WiFi On/Off button but it also doesn't work, if I click the toolbar network icon it still says WiFi off, and I see no WiFi network list. Its almost as if the FN+F4 key combination turns off an electrical switch.
