Ubuntu: wifi key does not work



Question:

After the installation of Ubuntu 17.10 some keys do not work correctly.

My PC: HP ENVY 15 J108LA

My problem is the wireless (f12) and mute or sound off (f6) keys. In the case of the wifi key, it does not activate or deactivate the wifi (it does not perform any action).

With the mute key or sound off, it does not turn on the red LED of the same key, as for example the case lock key does.

The other keys work correctly (uppercase block, f1, f2, f3, f4 ...), even the keyboard illumination key works, but I have no idea why the previous keys do not work as they should.
