Dell Inspiron 6400 cant get wireless connection

The Wi-Fi light that illuminates on the panel of lights below the sceen is out, so obviously the wireless has become switched off. There is no obvious means of switching this back on, is it a combination of certain keys? It would be appreciated if you can help.

I cant enable my wi-fi in dell inspiron n5010 i need to install driver???????????/

First of all you need to check if the driver is installed. To check, click on Start > right click My Computer, click Manage, on the left side click Device Manager > check the right pane, you will see all the devices installed on your machine on that pane. Check if your wireless device is installed properly. If it has no marks on it on the device manager, you might just need to enable the device itself. Most Dell computers uses Fn+F2 keys to activate the wireless. if it has a yellow mark, just install the driver and you're done.
Hope this works.. Regards...

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.
