In fact, if you press a button, there is no apparent response (the light does brighten for a short bit), but it will turn on card back on.
You don't know how many times I mistakenly touch this stupid button and kick myself off the Internet. At least now I know why my network dies mysteriously.
Human-computer interface FAIL, Dell. Read some Don Norman, perhaps? You can't design a button that looks like a light and expect users to deal with it.

i actually find this one button annoying. Does anyone know of a way of disabling this one touch button?—
Thank you I was losing my mind looking for a switch!—
The panel of those light up buttons frequently freeze on my computer. They do not respond during this time and my wireless is stuck in the off postition. How do I enable wireless without this button?—
Thank you! I spent some too much time trying to use the F8 function key!!! Then I checked my router, etc. I had no idea I was supposed to touch the antenna light.....Do I feel dumb? Oh yea.—
u can disable the wirless button in the bios—
Thankyou... thankyou... thankyou!!!! Back on line—

There is a "touch button", by which they mean an indicator light looking thing.
