How do I fix an x200’s internet kill switch?

I switched turned the switch to “off,” which promptly turned my wifi/bluetooth off. However, when I push the switch to “on,” my wifi/bluetooth isn’t turning back on. How do I fix this?

Fn/F5 or use Access Connections.
Or solder that switch to be permanently ON.

I’ve tried the Fn/F5, but that didn’t work (I’m p sure it’s only sw anyway). How would I use access connections? i found a guide the other day for soldering the switch but i can’t find it now xd.
