How do I turn on wireless capabilities for a Dell Inspiron 1525?

I don't have a switch on my computer. They say I have to look at the manual for a function key combination. But I can't find any.
Does someone know how to fix this problem.
Or does someone know the function key combination?

I had the same problem, but I solved it by hitting the f2 key alone (w/out the function key). when i keyed them at the same time the wireless did not toggle on/off

On the dell typically you need to press the 'FN" key and the wireless icon button. It look like a tower with wavy lines on top of it. If my memory serves me correctly it is on the upper left side the color will be blue. You will press the FN key then the wireless internet key. I provided a image for ya.

The function keys are Fn + F2 at the same time. You need to press Fn key next to space bar and then F2 at the same time, Wireless will be switched on

Hi,

The wireless radio combination should be the Fn+F2 keys to activate it. That is to hold down Fn and hit the F2 key.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and I turn on my wire less switch. What can I do?


Do you mean what happens when you turn it on? you allow your computer to find wireless networks. eg. linksys. netgear. etc. will all be able to connect to your computer. If you dont use wireless connection then it is recomended to keep the switch off to help your computer run faster.

Have you tried the FN + F2 key combo? I think the Dell's all use a hotkey rather than a hardware switch.

Laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525 with Windows Vista. It says no wireless connection found. Other computers are connected to internet. Says that is switched off. But no buttons were pressed to turn it off....

There should be a switch on the lower right side of the Dell Inspiron. That should click forward and backwards. Clicking it forward "turns it on", Clicking it backwards "turns it off". Let me know if it works!

On the right-hand side near the cd rom drive, there is a switch that moves back and forth. move it towards the back of the computer. that should turn on your wireless capabilities. A wi-fi manager screen should pop and and you should be good to go.
