How to connect wifi


yeerat,
The system has a wireless switch located on the front of the computer. The switch enables or disables the wireless antenna. Since the system does not have Quickset, there is no additional function for this switch. For information on setting up your wireless connection you can click the link below.

Bluetooth peripheral device driver


Sai Ch Krishna,

Depending on the system. The bluetooth would have to have been purchased at point of sale. The wireless and the bluetooth are turned on by a wireless switch on the side of the computer. If needed you can reinstall the drivers. Also, make sure bluetooth is turned on in the bios. Below is more information.
Wireless Switch

Wireless Technology The Latitude D630, D631, and D630c system ships with a wireless feature called the wireless switch. It is located on the left side of the system next to the IEEE 1394 connector. When used in combination with the Dell 38482; Quickset utilities, this switch enables or disables the wireless LAN, wireless WAN, and Bluetooth cards in the system or searches for all wireless networks in range.
To scan for a Wi-Fi wireless LAN, slide and hold the switch in the momentary position for a few seconds. The Wi-Fi Catcher network locator works whether the computer is turned on or off, in Hibernate mode, or in Standby mode, as long as the switch is configured through QuickSet or the BIOS to control Wi-Fi network connections.
Because the Wi-Fi Catcher network locator is disabled and not configured for use when the computer is shipped, it must be enabled and configured through the Dell QuickSet utilities to control Wi-Fi network connections.

Wireless Switch LED Settings
The LED on the wireless switch works even if the system is off. A user can activate the switch and have it scan for networks without going through a complete boot process. The switch can be set to detect for only certain wireless signals, such as WLAN only, WWAN only, Bluetooth only, or any combination of these. This is set in the BIOS under the Wireless section.
The LED indicates the presence of a network as follows:
  • Flashing green - The system is searching for a signal.
  • Green - The system has detected a wireless signal and has good strength.
  • Yellow - The system has detected a wireless signal, but it is moderate to weak in strength.
  • Red - The system failed to detect a wireless signal, or the wireless signal is extremely weak.

Hi there,

There are 2 ways of which you can enable the wifi on your dell inspiron 1525:

1) Make sure the wifi catcher on the side is set to the "on" position, this can be achieved by sliding the little switch, so the line in the middle of the switch is aligned with the ' (a line) sign.

2) The next thing that you need to do is ensure that the wifi is enabled you can enable wifi by pressing "FN" (the key on the keyboard) and F2. N.B. This will only work if you have Dell quickset installed. An alternative way of doing this is by going to start > control panel > network connections, find the wifi adapter > right click > enable.


Hope this has helped slightly, add more info if it hasn't

Thanks for reading and good luck with your problem.

Good day

Hello, i got a dell inspiron E1505 ,which is showing that the radio it disabled thus i got no wireless connect.I would be happy if you can advice me on how to enable my radio


  • Double-click the "QS" icon in the system tray to launch the Dell QuickSet utility.

  • Click the "Radio Control Options" icon in the upper-left corner of the QuickSet window.

  • Click the "Advanced Settings" button and select the "Radio Control Options" tab at the top of the window.

  • Place a check next to the WiFi device and then click "OK." You should see the "WiFi" indicator light on the bezel above the keyboard turn on. If the indicator turns on, you should now be able to connect to a wireless access point. If you continue to experience a problem, continue to the next step to confirm that the adapter is enabled in the Windows XP Device Manager.

  • Click the "Start" button. Right-click the "My Computer" icon on the Start menu and select "Properties."

  • Select the "Hardware" tab at the top of the System Properties window and then click the "Device Manager" button.

  • Double-click the "Network Adapters" category.

  • Right-click the Device Manager entry for the WiFi adapter and select "Enable." You should now be able to connect to an access point.

I have problem with my vostro 1510 wreless, by switching the wireless and bluetooth key on, only the blutooth devise is turn on.


The Dell QuickSet utility Wireless options can cause these issues.

There is a setting to always deactivate on battery. Make sure this is not set up. The correct setting would be Always active on battery or Always On, or no power saving options for Wi-Fi. Depending on the version of QuickSet which you have.

It is known to glitch when power is removed from the machine while the wireless is in use.

Please let us know if you have any futher questions. If this information was helpful, please take a moment to rate the solution. Thank you.
