    To start, I am running Windows 7 on a Dell Studio laptop. I've been experiencing problems whenever I leave my home wireless network while traveling and then switch to a Verizon wireless USB card. Whenever I return to my home wireless and boot up the computer my wireless is not activated. It tells me the hardware radio switch is set to off. No I know you have to turn it back on by hitting the blue Fn (function) key and then also hit the F2 at the same time. My problem is it appears the Fn key isn't working and will not turn it back on nor will it work on any of the other function keys such as the battery indicator, etc. Is there anything I can do to make sure the function key is enabled? Is there another way to switch on the radio button? I've searched for this but cannot find anything. If anyone has any detailed instructions, please let me know. In the past the Fn key did work, but today it is not.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.
