Have you tried the FN + F2 key combo? I think the Dell's all use a hotkey rather than a hardware switch.

The computer says that my wireless capabilities are turned off


Look on both sides and in the front of the laptop for a switch or button that controls the wireless.

If the wireless switch is turned on then maybe you hit the keystrokes that toggles the wireless On or Off.

Normally to toggle the wireless with keystrokes you have to Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the correct key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the wireless. The correct key will have the wireless icon on it and it may look something like this )))). Or it may be a tower with ))) on it.

There's two switch to turn the wireless capability of this laptop:

1. You need to turn ON the physical wireless switch located at the top of the keyboard (see image below)

2 If that doesn't turn the Wireless ON, you need to press the Fn+F8 key (the Fn key is located on the left side of the space bar).

No wireless capability


If your model does not have wireless capability, even if you had a switch on the machine, if there is no internal wireless card you can't make this wireless. My suggestion would be to purchase a PCMCIA or USB wireless card that you can load to your system to make this wireless capable.
