Items like this don't normally work because the key is properitory feature to Windows. But give this a try. Open a terminal window and run the command xev.
Now press the key you use to turn on the wireless. Does it provide a keycode info when pressed. Post output if so. Stop there till we see which way to go from there. Other idea if no keycode is program other keys to run some scripts.
These shortcut keys really annoy me. My toshiba laptop the function keys are not seen at all by xev and in windows without a drtiver loaded they are not seen as well. I have a logitech keyboard and ive only succesfully mapped half of the multimedia keys. And what really gets on my tits is you cant seem to buy a keyboard without that damm windows flag key.
