There should be a wireless icon next to the time (lower right hand corner of your screen) that you can right-click on and Turn radio on. Hit the function(blue button lower left) and F2 if there is a tower on F2, it may be a differant F number on the top. If that doesnt work, right click my computer and click manage. Then Device monitor, and then click the + next to network adaptors and make sure the wireless symbol doesnt have a symbol on it besides the green chip. If its red its disabled, right click enable. If its yellow you need a driver for it, find it on Support.Dell.com and install the driver.

Check your BIOS first to make sure it is enabled. Then try Fn + F2 or Fn or whatever they F key that has the antenna symbol.

If dual booting, may have to get the wireless turned on through windows then boot into Linux

Check in the lower left hand side of your keyboard. You should see a key wth the letters FN. You will need to press FN + F2 in order to turn the WiFi on and off from the keyboard.

Hope this is helpful.

Wireless connection


by default, dell systems' switch for wireless can be done by pressing Fn and tap F2. The wifi light should lit up. Your modem is integrated to the motherboard. If you were able to lit up the wifi light, this should be able to detect wireless signals for you to connect to.
