How can i turn my inspiron 6400 wifi on?


Press the FN+F2 to turn on then the wifi light will turn green.
Else you'll have a sliding switch in the sides of the laptop to turn on wireless.

Good luck.

How do u turn on and use wifi on Inspiron B130?


There should be a wireless icon next to the time (lower right hand corner of your screen) that you can right-click on and Turn radio on. Hit the function(blue button lower left) and F2 if there is a tower on F2, it may be a differant F number on the top. If that doesnt work, right click my computer and click manage. Then Device monitor, and then click the + next to network adaptors and make sure the wireless symbol doesnt have a symbol on it besides the green chip. If its red its disabled, right click enable. If its yellow you need a driver for it, find it on Support.Dell.com and install the driver.

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.

Hi Sir / Mam,
I have 2 Questions?

Are you able to connect to Wireless?How about the Wired connection?
Try to update the Wireless drivers.
Also check if the wireless is getting detected in BIOS and Network Adapters in Device Manager.Apart from the wireless are all other lights glowing in the cluster.
If yes get the light assembly changed.
