Sometimes you just have to press f2 for the corresponding special functions. For the function keys to work, you need to press Fn + function key.

SOURCE: my dell won't turn on wireless

Drivers have to be active as well as the device, try this procedure.

Windows WiFi Fix,

Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.

Windows XP:


Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

SOURCE: can't enable Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card

I was using the wireless network, disabled the radio and after reboot was unable to get it to save the enable click. After reviewing all software options listed here - checked wireless adapter setting in BIOS - it was turned off! Turned this on in BIOS and upon boot was able to access wireless network again. Hope this helps you.

Can't enable Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card


I had the exact same problem and went through the same steps that he did. It was only when I searched for a physical wireless switch (on the left side of my Dell D630) that the problem was solved. I didn't even know it was there and must have inadvertently knocked into the off position.
