Dell Studio 1458 Fn+F2 Radio switch will not work

WHile trying to fix a Bluetooth issue I managed to turn the Radio switch off and cannot get it back on. DW 1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half mini card passes diagnostics but shows "disabled". Can't get it enabled. Is there a DOS command I can try?

Maxie,

Thank you. I don't know exactly, oh what the heck-at all, what Dell Quickset is but I searched for it and found it on my computer. I ran it and then the Fn+F2 switch worked. Thanks so much, now what was that Bluetooth problem I was working on 8 hours ago?
