There is a physical key for turning On Wifi/ On Airplane mode on the right of the laptop, next to the USB ports, Push it to turn on wireless.
Thanks. I hit the Fn and PrtScr accidentally. Hit it again and it turned off my airplane mode. Really annoying that you cannot tien it off from settings as well.
This worked for me after hours on the phone with support. My laptop was new out of the box and my airplane mode was on! dell support couldn't help me. I searched everywhere for a solution and tried nearly everything!! Thank you for the easy quick fix. I rolled my eyes and laughed. Of corse it's always the simplest solution! So greatful!!
Look at your F2 KEY. That will shift your Airplane mode to Wi Fi. It took me a whole day to fix my problem. before I accidently found it.
On my Dell Precision M4800 there was a slider switch on the right hand side with a little wifi icon next to it.
Kudos to Tarasula for helping identify the physical switch.
