Default Can not enable radio/wifi card after XP install - 11-08-2010, 10:25 AM

Noob to the Mini-World here. Just bought a Mini10v Refurb with a FUBAR XP Home install.
Installed XP Pro via flash & all case specific drivers & updates from Dell onto it.
Everything went smooth except for:

A) Unable to get the radio to enable, F2 key does nada, have installed the
Function Buttons R210072....Battery utility works fine, Wifi Radio nada.

I'm sure its something simple I'm missing, have done some searching on here and
have seen a stand alone Wireless Select Switch utility for the Mini10 & 10v
mentioned but no links....HELP????

B) Is there an OSD utility for Volume and Screen Brightness somewhere out there??
That would be very helpful, specially for volume.
Is there a Quickset utility for the Mini 10v like there is for the Insp 17xx & Insp 15xx?

I can answer one of my own questions.....If you cant get the F2 button to enable/disable wifi... go here:
Drivers and Downloads

Still looking for OSD for Volume and Brightness.....
