Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

Can't enable Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card

\015 "The radio of your wireless adapter is not currently turned on. Please press the Cancel button and turn the adapter's radio on." I press cancel. I check the "Enable Radio" box in the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility. I press "Apply." I get the error -- "The Dell Wireless WLAN Card is still disabled. Slide the Wireless ON/OFF switch to enable it or press Fn-F2 to enable it." Pressing FN-F2 does not fix the problem, and I don't think there is a manual switch. Suggestions?\015

Answers :

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.
I was using the wireless network, disabled the radio and after reboot \015\012was unable to get it to save the enable click. After reviewing all software options listed here - checked wireless adapter setting in BIOS - it was turned off! Turned this on in BIOS and upon boot was able to access wireless network again. Hope this helps you.
