Wireless router radio button disabled

Hi: this laptop was a gift. It's a Dell, inspiron 1300. When I try to go wireless, it says the radio button is disabled. I try to click the enable but it says there is a switch. I've looked everywhere and there is not a switch. Can you help?

    Thanks so much for the help. The radio is now on, but I am still unable to go wireless because ? There is a padlock next to the the the computer when showing who's listed. How do I go in change/edit or remove and add a new connection? What is the key and where do I get one? I used to think I was smart, but this seems beyond me!

On dell inspirons it isn't a switch, but there should be a button on the keyboard in blue. You need to hold down the blue Fn button, then hit the button on the keyboard that has a wireless icon in blue. Usually it is Fn+F2.

Dell inspiron 6400 wireless not working. I have tried Fn+F2 option and it shows that wireless is on, but when I go to 'Intel Proset Wireless' utility, the message asks me to 'Enable Radio'....


  1. Re-seat the wireless card
  2. Reset the bios defaults to ensure that the wireless is enabled in the BIOS
  3. Download and install the latest BIOS ver
  4. Download and install the latest Intel Wireless driver
See if you can then connect, if not, then try disabling encryption in the router and see if the system will connect in the clear.

If i disabled wifi how to i enable in a dell laptop?


The same way you disabled it, there should be an icon on your taskbar for enabled and disabled the WLAN switch. If there isnt you need to go to control panel and go to networks, enable wirless router, search for networks etc. If that does work then you have to go into control panel, change wireless settings or change internet settings and find it that way.

My Dell Inspiron E1505's wireless switch is off.


This happened to me using a Dell Inspiron laptop. The wireless switch was disabled and the answer was supposed to use both the blue Fn and regular F2 function key to enable wireless connection. I tried Fn and F2 together and it did not work. I tried just F2 alone and it worked.
