Default Dell Inspiron 15R N5110 Wifi Not Working

Did a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) on his laptop (see in title) and even with all the drivers and network and wifi specific ones, the thing still acts like it has no wifi drivers. No where is there a section to turn it on.

Im stumped.

Nope. Just the FN+F2 turn on. I'm positive!

Does it work in a linux live environment? It could have coincidentally died.
