I have a Dell M6800 laptop I  just got and it is stuck in Airplane Mode. The icon that allows you to switch to Wireless mode is dim and does not function. Dell had sent a tech over to replace the airplane mode switch and that did not help. None of the solutions I have seen on the internet have helped. Does anyone know what else I can try? This is on W2012 R2 server.
