It's either "fn + F2" or just "F2".

I think the function key trigger is reversed on that model, so probably just F2.

SOURCE: WiFi turns itself off

Hi Troy,
Don't know if this will work with your Dell, but on my Averatec, I had to do the following.
Go to Start>Right click on My Computer and select Properties. Click on the Hardware tab, and Device manger. Click on + by the Network Adapters. Right click on your wireless, Intel or Broadcom wireless adapter, and click on Advanced. Findd the Minimum Power Consumption and make sure it is disabled. If you have a Power Management tab, click on it, and uncheck both boxes.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: WiFi radio is turned off

The EZ button software must be installed to turn the radio on or off. The switch on the side does nothing.

Hi,

1. Press and hold "Fn" button and while holding it down
2. Press the "F5" key on the keyboard.

That enables your wireless device.

How do i enable bluetooth on dell E5410?


Anonymous,
You will need to make sure your wifi catcher switch is turned on. It is located on the Front Left side edge of the chassis. Move the switch to the left or right to turn on/off. You can also check the system bios to verify that the bluetooth is enabled.
