Fn-F2 not working to enable wireless

I have a user with a Latitude D610 and when we try to enable the wireless card it gives the error "The Dell Wireless WLAN Card is still disabled. Slide the Wireless ON/OFF switch to ena ble it or press Fn-F2 to enable it." I've tried and Fn-F2 doesn't work and I tried it on another D610 and it worked fine. Any suggestions?

Make sure the Dell Quickset Utility is loaded and running.

Re: Fn-F2 not working to enable wireless

I'm using the Dell Wireless WLAN Card Utility. 4.10.47.3.
 
I believe the issue is the ethernet card is connected through the dock. I'll check back if that isn't it.
