Have installed Win 8.1 on Dell Vostro 3446.
Unable to make the wifi work. The Fn+PrtScr toggles Flight Mode on/off.
Kindly advise how to make the wifi work.
The button looking like a wireless antenna does nothing, either on its own or with Ctrl, Shirft or any other meta key. I ran the dell diagnostics app and it said wireless is turned off, click here to enable". As I did this, it flicked up to display a suitable network, and then switched off again. In Device Manager the device is "working properly" and diagnostics says as much. Help!
This worked like a charm for me. The FN locked key is on the ESC key and I had to press it once, then FN+PRTSCR. I can see where locking the FN keys could be valuable at times. But super frustrating when your brand new computer will not hook up to the net.
