I was afraid that would be your answer. My ThinkPad has the switch. In Win7 I can also do Fn+F5 which brings up a Lenovo app to individually on/off the three radio devices, but not sure if that does a hard switch in my case. To use anything that hard switch has to be on for W7 or Linux. I guess I should really find out what switch type my Fn+ does in W7.

Do you have the module dell-wmi loaded? If not, does that enable your wireless
“switch”? If the module is loaded and it still doesn’t work, your Dell laptop is
not handled correctly, and you will need to contact the upstream developers.
These are not openSUSE people. I would create a report on bugzilla.kernel.org.
