    Make sure you have the blutooth driver installed from Dell Drivers & Downloads - can often be overlooked.

    there is an option in the bios for sure (should be enabled by default, at least it was with my m18x) and you have an on/off switch with the media control between the eject dvd and the command center button

    Strange thing - i pressed on media panel to turn off wifi but it still uses it maybe conflict between killer wireless and with a dell one?

    EDIT. Now wireless button works - turns off and on my wifi connection, but what the hell with bluetooth -_-

    Did your bluetooth work before reinstall?

    I'm pretty sure the Killer card doesn't have bluetooth, they would need another bluetooth module. Someone correct me if I'm wrong
