Then you have a basic keyboard problem. You should _must_ get some
activity in xev (and I do hope that you tested with 'xev' rather than
'xen'. If there is absolutely no action in the terminal window when
FN+F6 is pressed, then I'd suspect a keyboard mapping problem. Try xev
and test using other FN+<key> - for example the function key for your
sound, screenprint etc. If you're not seeing any change in the terminal
& those keys are indeed working, then you've a xev issue (operator?).

Does it change when you do FN+F6? Can you also check rfkill1? A '1'
state should meand the wireless is enabled.
