Question about Dell Latitude D530 Notebook

1 Answer

I am unable to manually turn my wireless switch back on in my dell 530 latitude. I depress the F2 and Fn Key at the same time, and it will not activate the switch, although it does show as enabled under network connections it says it is not connected and firewalled. How can I fix this problem. I believe the keys on my keyboard just don't work anymore. Is there a way to program it to turn on the switch.

First make sure that your keyboard is working.. If is not working then fix that issue.. If it works then get into control panel and find windows firewall.. Turn off the windows firewall.. If you have any other firewall also turn it off.. After that try connecting.. If the issue is still not fixed then unistall the wireless drivers from the device manager.. Install a fresh copy from the dell website(www.support.dell.com)... The problem should be fixed...

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.

How do i turn on the wireless on dell d810, it does not have any switch


You should see a blue WiFi symbol on the "F2" key (a little tower with curved lines on each side). All of the blue symbols on the keys are functions that are toggled on or off by using the Function "Fn" key.
Press and hold the Function "Fn" key, and at the same time press the "F2" key and then release both.
You should see a comment box in the bottom right corner of the screen pop up telling you that the WiFi has been turned on or off.

I had the exact same problem and went through the same steps that he did. It was only when I searched for a physical wireless switch (on the left side of my Dell D630) that the problem was solved. I didn't even know it was there and must have inadvertently knocked into the off position.

Your Dell has the ability to turn the wifi on and off using the Fn key (lower left on your keyboard) and (If I remember correctly) the F2 key--anyway, it's the function key that has a little picture of a "radio antenna" on it. Hold down the Fn key and then press that other key. The wireless network should then be active.

What combination of keys will switch on my wireless capability?


When it says to press the FN key and the F2 key it means that there is a particular key with the letters FN on it, press this key and the F2 key at the same time to turn on and off the wireless. ITS NOT THE F AND THE N KEY , ITS THE FN KEY.
