You are correct in thinking that Fn + F2 turns wifi on and off on the D610.

Since that is obviously not the cause of the problem you need to look elsewhere. Two suggestions spring to mind:

1) The wifi adapter can be enabled/disabled in BIOS Setup, so check in there and if necessary enable it.

2) Try re-installing the wireless adapter driver. You can download it from the Dell Support website that's appropriate for your country. For the UK it's here:

For other countries, click "United Kingdom" at top-left of page and select your country from the drop-down list. It's essential you choose the correct country first to avoid the risk of getting the wrong driver or not being able to find your model.

Were you holding Fn and F2 down at the same time?

Also look in Control Panel > Networks and see if your Wifi adapter is showing.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
