    Hardware Wireless Switch

    I am really at a loss on this one. I just installed Ubuntu 12.04 on my new laptop. Get it all booted up and it says that my wireless is turned off at the hardware level. So I hit the f2 on my keyboard which doubles as turning the wireless on. Funny enough it turns the blue tooth on and off. How can I get my wireless turned on.

    Dell Vostro 3450

    Please run the following command in a terminal and post the output. It may give some clue.

    Code:
    rfkill list all
