SOURCE: Wireless Button Disabled

After one month of trying everything, I finally figured this one out.  First turn off and restart your computer.  Then press F10 to enter the System BIOS Settings.  Select F9 (Setup Defaults) and when it asks Load Default Configuration Now? , Enter YES.  Then, press F10 (Save and Exit) and when it asks Save Configuration Changes And Exit Now, Enter YES.  This should restore the wireless LAN button to its original factory settings.  Once you restart the computer the button will be listed as disabled, but press on the button and it should work again.  I hope this helps someone else out!

Wireless radio switch


Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

If your dell has an antenna sticking out of the back, then you have wifi, otherwise I believe this model needs a wireless card. If you do have wifi, here's how to turn it on.

- click Start,
- choose Control Panel on the right
- If the top right says 'View by: Category'
click the down arrow on the right and choose either Large Icons
or Small Icons.
- choose Network and Sharing Center
- you will now see your wireless network if the adapter is on,
if it is not on, chick on Change Adapter Settings on top left
- two connections typically show up:
1. Local Area Connection and
2. Wireless Connection
- right click the Wireless Connection,
- choose Status

> the next window lets you Enable your wireless device, check its
Properties, or Diagnose connection issues.

Let me repeat from above:
Usually WIFI is Disabled/OFF if you typically use a wired LAN connection, and a lot of systems only allow you to have One Or The Other on at one time, otherwise it would not know which method to send your internet and network traffic.

So, you may have to Temporarily Disable the LAN connection before you can Enable the WIFI connection.

Just reverse this later if you want to go back to a wired connection on the desktop machine. I use all WIFI at home, then I connect my laptop by a cable to my router if I have an issue to solve, which is maybe once every two years.

It's easier when you are doing it than it may seem just reading this.

Hope this helps
All the best to you,

Will not connect to wifi


  • Touch the Apps Menu button on the Home screen.
  • Open the Settings app.
  • Choose Wireless & Networks.
  • Choose Wi-Fi Settings.
  • Ensure that Wi-Fi is on.
    When you see a green check mark next to the Wi-Fi option, Wi-Fi is on.
  • Choose a wireless network from the list.
    Available Wi-Fi networks appear at the bottom of the screen. When no wireless networks are listed, you're sort of out of luck regarding wireless access from your current location.
    Optionally, type the network password.
    Touch the Password text box to see the onscreen keyboard.
    Touch the Show Password check box so that you can see what you're typing; some of those network passwords can be long.
    Touch the Connect button.
    You should be immediately connected to the network. If not, try the password again.

    This is first assuming you are talking about an IPOD Touch. You first have to have wireless connectivity. Once you have wifi go to:

    1. Touch Settings

    2. Touch Wifi

    3. Turn your Wifi ON

    4. Select a Wifi network

    5. Enter the WEP Key you have created on your router (assuming you have secured your network).

    6. Hit Connect

Use the following methods if you need to disable the radio and use your notebook without emitting radio signals.
    Use the Optional Computer Radio On or Off Switch

    If your computer has an external switch installed, use it to switch the WiFi radio on or off. See the computer manufacturer for more information about this switch.

    Neither mine or my sons i pod touches work both keep saying server stopped responding,any idea thanks


    It sounds as if you are trying to do something wirelessly but are not connected to a wireless (WiFi) network.

    I the upper left hand corner of your iPods, next to "iPod" do you see the full blue fan indicating a full WiFi signal?

    If so, then there may be a problem with the wireless network you are on.

    If not, the go to Settings --> Wi-Fi

    Make sure Wi-Fi is turned on

    See if there are any wireless networks in your area, if so they will be listed.

    If you are connecting to your wireless network, just look for your network name and click on it.

    If you are looking for wireless networks other than yours click on one of the networks listed. If the wireless network require a password you will see a little padlock next to the signal indicator (fan shape) and you will be prompted for the password when you try to connect.
