On my similar 1012 (but with a different WiFi card), the wireless kill switch is F2 or Fn+F2 depending on whether you have multimedia keys or function keys set as the default in BIOS. And it seems to work like expected, hitting Fn+F2 cripples WiFi and rfkill reports a "hard block". Hitting it again makes the hard block go away, and the WiFi comes back up.
You have the latest version of the driver? Should be here: Realtek.
Try "rfkill unblock all".
