I believe it is the same as the 1525, look on the right side of the laptop before the dvd tray, there will be a thin spring loaded button that you slide back towards the rear to activate the wireless.

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.

Hello, I have an Inspiron 1525 and I am having trouble getting Wireless Network switch to turn on. Is there any other way to turn it on while bypassing the switch in case its broken? thanks, Edite


The other thing to make sure of is that the wireless is enabled in the BIOS of the laptop. Usually when you turn it on and press F2 that will take you into the BIOS. Make sure it isn't turned off for some reason. If its on in BIOS and the switch IS broken then you're out of luck unfortunately. You may have to have the switch or wireless card itself replaced.
Best of luck! Hope this helps!

Hi!
Most WIFI cable laptops has a switch or a button on the sides or just above the F keys on the laptop itself.
Just look for a radar icon or wave thingy icon.
Keep me posted.
