It's all about some trick with Registry Editor.

Here's some step to solve it.

1. Press "start" then select "run" and key in "regedit" that will open the Registry Editor.

2. Go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Class/{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002bE10318}/

3. Right click the folder {4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002bE10318} and choose "Find" then key in "Atheros"

Now this will most likely vary on your machine. I found it in the "0011" folder.

4. Once you locate it, add new string value to that folder. Right Click then select "new" then "String Value"

Name the first "String Value" that you created as "gpioPinFunc0" press enter. Right click it again and then select "Modify". Key in "3" in the "Value Data"

it should look something like this:

Value Name:
gpioPinFunc0
Value data:
3

5. Create another "String Value" with this values:

Value Name:
gpioFunc0ActHi
Value data:
0

6. Close the Registry and restart your computer.

Now, your wifi light will turn blue when you turn on and it will turn blue when you turn it off by pressing the wifi button.
