How do I enable wireless? BIOS check says hardware is fine.
I have a 1 yr old dell vostro 3400 and for most of that year the wireless worked perfectly. Recently I have no wireless: I cannot set up or connect to anything, and nothing is visible. When I go to control panel\network and internet\manage wireless networks, is says "Wireless is not currently enabled." I know about the little toggle on the laptop's exterior, and that is in the correct setting. I ran a hardware check from the BIOS and all relevant hardware is properly working. When I go to registry editor though, some of the files in System\CurrentControlSet\services\Wlansvs\Parameters have no values set to them (I didn't set them like that).
Do you have any ideas on how I can reenable wireless or is there a list of default working values for those files?

@Layback bear, I gave that a shot but it said I'm not an admin running a console...I'm definitely an admin though.
I did that, and it says my adapters are fine but that I have no drivers installed for the network controller. That sounds important...is it? I can connect fine to ethernet and get internet through that though.
