Question about Dell Inspiron 710m Notebook

Wireless not working

I dropped my Inspiron 710 and wireless stopped working. When I press (Fn+F2) it's supposed to turn on WiFi, but it's not turning on.I can't see the wireless icon in the task bar (bottom right corner). I couldn't find a way to turn the wireless on. Internet connection works with LAN by connecting directly with an ethernet cable.Any suggestions?

Open the Access door for the wireless card and make sure it is connected securely.(remove it and re-install.) TRY NOT TO DISCONNECT THE ANTENNA WIRES as they are small and a pain to re-install. (My big fat fingers I need a pair of tweezers.) Make sure it is properly seated and finger tabs are locked. install door reboot and see if any difference.

Wifi problems with Dell Inspiron E1705

LOL, sounds like you didn't hit the correct key or keystrokes.

First of all look in front and on the sides for the Wireless Switch and make sure it is turned on. Then once it is on you can toggle the wireless on or off by Keystrokes. Press and Hold the FN key located at the lower left portion of the keyboard, then hit the corresponding F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the icon of the wireless signal )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal )))). Normally when the correct keystrokes is hit the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off.

How do you turn on wifi for dell latitude d610

There is not wireless switch on this model. To turn on your wireless you will need to hold down FN + F2. If this does not turn on your wireless its most probably disabled in the Bios. To enable it, press the F2 key at the Dell Logo on startup, move down to wireless, press enter and move to wireless control, make sure its set to Fn+F2/App, then move down to wireless devices and make sure it set to on. Press Esc, and save changes and exit.

My Dell Inspiron E1505's wireless switch is off.

This happened to me using a Dell Inspiron laptop. The wireless switch was disabled and the answer was supposed to use both the blue Fn and regular F2 function key to enable wireless connection. I tried Fn and F2 together and it did not work. I tried just F2 alone and it worked.

Press the FN+F2 to turn on then the wifi light will turn green.

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.
