Well, on the d820, the kill switch is on the side, a slide type switch.

I found this info:

I wonder if the dellWirelessCtl will only work on those who have a hardware
switch.  So maybe the real answer is to create your own /usr/bin/dellWirelessCtl
that does nothing so the error message goes away.

I guess I'm fresh out of ideas.
