Go in to the BIOS and u will find an option there to on the wifi
to go in to bios first shut the system down completely and when you start again the moment u hit the power button start tapping the f2 key and u will land up in bios

Check around the sides of the laptop. There is usually a switch. It's not always easy to find so look carefully. If that doesn't work report back and I'll give you another tip.

How do I add wifi to my dell inspiron 1000 laptop using a hotspot?


  • same way you connect to any wifi. switch on the hot spot option in the device u r using as a hot spot then go to your laptop and turn on the wifi.....if u r lucky the laptop will automatically search and give you an option to connect to the wifi hotspot....otherwise u will have to go to wifi settings of your laptop and manually search for the same....visit dell.com for further help.

Wheer is the wirless switch on a inspiron 1545 laptpo


It is not a switch
look on the keyboard and look at 'F2' button and press it
this is the button which turns on the wifi
note the f2 key says f2 in blue and then shows a wifi signal icon in white also note a blue square box appears as you switch on and off your wifi connection in the bottom right hand corner...

I am not getting internet connection. It keeps saying that there is no ethernet adapter connected but I have the ethernet cord plugged in. When I turn the switch on the right of the computer for the WiFi,...


The Ethernet is still can't use for WiFi so far,but it isn't not a problem for the WiFi connect matter because there is a Net Work card itself for most Laptop today including Dell Inspiron 1525 PC Notebook, it may be the Drive matter for the Net work system,you can update it ,or there is no WiFi Net work in your place obsolutely.

I swiched off my laptop inspiron 1000 at the off switch. when I put it back on the back light did not work


how do you know it is the backlight? Usually people think that's it but it is the inverter.
f the backlight of your laptop stopped working and the image on the screen is so dim that you can barely see it under bright light, most likely you have a failed inverter board. There is a good chance to fix the problem if you replace the inverter board. If you replace the inverter board but the image is still dim, most likely there is a problem with the backlight lamp inside the LCD screen. If that's the case, try to replace the LCD screen. Note: it's much easier to disassemble the laptop display panel when the display panel is separated from the laptop.

I can definitely fix either way if you are out of warranty from dell.
Good luck! EJ Kudelka ej@outlet3g.com 516-860-2969

Which adapter do I need to visit 'hotspots' w/my Inspiron 1000 ?


you can use this one $59 but will have to install it (not to hard), to make sure you don't already have one when booting up hit the F2 key enter the setup/bios menu and see if one is listed under wireless, if it shows one enabled.
if it is you can connect with it, there is no switch on these dells just a software switch.
this one slides in the side and sticks out link$31 as a cheaper option,
hope this helps

Connecting using wifi


If you go into the device manager and click on Network adapters, is there a wireless adapter listed there? Are there any items that have an exclamation mark next to them? If you answered no to both of the above questions, then there is no wireless adapter installed. You can purchase a PCMCIA wireless adapter rather inexpensively online. ($25) It will just pop right into the PC slot on the side of the laptop.
