Hi

the F12 key is usually driven by the HP Wireless Button in windows.

When troubleshooting wireless, it's important that your system is fully updated by opening a terminal, CTRL+ALT+T. Using a wired internet connection, please run:
Code:

sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade

and reboot if necessary.

If the issues persist, it is recommended that you install pastebinit, by running:
Code:

sudo apt install pastebinit

This will enable the wireless script to, upon your approval, upload the obtained data to pastebin, creating at the same time a link to it in your terminal, permitting you to paste it to a forum thread.

Once that's done, download and run the wireless info script, which will gather information to help diagnose your system. You can run it using this command:
Code:

wget -N -t 5 -T 10 https://github.com/UbuntuForums/wireless-info/raw/master/wireless-info && \
chmod +x wireless-info && \
./wireless-info

It will create the file "wireless-info.txt" at the location it is run from, and depending on its size, an additional archive called "wireless-info.tar.gz". If you prefer, you can post the file directly to pastebin yourself. Sensitive information like MAC addresses and WPA/WEP keys are masked automatically.

If you aren't able to connect to the internet with the affected system, including via a wired connection, just navigate to
https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2082305&p=12350385&viewfull=1#post12350385 using another device and follow the instructions there on how to the run wireless script without an internet connection.

F12 key is not working

Ubuntu forums offer this...

 

Tried sudo rfkill unblock all, but no difference.
Went into BIOS (f10 during very brief HP startup display), and found wireless [enabled], but tried resetting defaults - and it worked!
Going back into BIOS, the display is the same as when it did not work (ie, it still displays wireless [enabled]), so I don't understand.
The wireless on/off button now works properly, as does the telltale light - switch off, light goes out, connection is cut. Press again, light comes on, connection quickly re-establishes.

Hi

I got Lubuntu running and it uses the Ubuntu repositories, so the driver list should be familiar.

 

My F12 Aeroplane Button works in this distro.

 

Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS
Release: 18.04
Codename: bionic

Which I think, apart from the actual adapter drivers is slightly different??
