$ /sbin/iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wmaster0  no wireless extensions.

wlan0     IEEE 802.11abgn  ESSID:""
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.417 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated
          Tx-Power=15 dBm

pan0      no wireless extensions.

At least this means the hardware thingy is ON. Now I cannnot switch it
off using the Fn+F<x> comb, I am guessing I am not using the right
