Just picked up a Dell e-6510, everything is fine, except when I noticed there was no wifi, saw Airport was on, WiFi off, turned off the Aiport, but Wifi will not switch to ON?

If one presses FN key then F5 key... does this bring up any windowed user interface or make your wifi switch on?

What operating system are you running please?

Has one tried uninstalling the wifi network driver via Device Manager and rebooting the laptop?
