Hash02,

Turn on or Turn off WiFi/Bluetooth

A NOTE indicates important information that helps you make better use of your computer. NOTE:

There is no physical switch to enable/disable wireless. It has to be done through PC settings.

  1. Launch Settings Charm and select Change PC settings.
  2. Select Wireless from the left pane.
  3. Under the Wireless devices option, move the WiFi/Bluetooth slider to turn it off. Move the slider again to turn it on.

To anyone who was looking for an answer to this question and has windows 7. find the model number to the card you have and find the driver itself from atheros. mine was a dw1707 so this worked for me. https://drp.su/en/devices/wifi/atheros/dell-wireless-1707-802-11b-g-n-2-4ghz?os=windows-7-x64
