If you can open your hardware then open it and place it correctly !
if you're not so proffesional with this then goto service engineer.

Open Intel Proset Wireless or Dell wireless utility from start>all programs. Make sure the the checkbox for 'enable radio' is checked.

I have just had the exact same problem and i just fixed it.
You are best off downloading & installing the Intel Proset/Wireless software. This will fix your problem automatically. Once you do this you have the option of letting windows manage connections for you or just let the software do it. Your choice.
Make sure that you download it from the Dell site though as the drivers on the Intel site are only generic. Dell drivers and software are specific to your laptop and are directly setup for your laptop.
Here is the link for the software I got and i believe you need and let me know how you go mate. Iether click it or cut and paste it into your browser address bar.

The switch simply turns the radio on and off, if it can stay in the on position just leave it in the on position. It should stay enabled if the radio is "on". There really is no reason to keep rurning the radio on and off. If you need to disable it, then just go to the device manager and disable it there. The switch is a pain to replace, first you have to find the right one, then the soldering of the switch is another battlle all to itself.
