The wifi switch at the side of my dell laptop (dell inspiron 1525) is broken therefore I can't switch on my wifi. What's the solution to either fixing the side button or getting the wifi to work another way?
Inspiron 1525's wireless switch is located on a separate daughter-board, which is connected internally to bottom base and motherboard. Depending upon the extent of damage, the WiFi Switch and the bottom base of your system might need replacement. You may open the system chassis and try to turn the wireless on with the help of wireless daughter-board. For better understanding, you may refer to the images below :
For disassembly/reassembly of system, you may refer to the service manual Here.
Hope this helps. Please reply with the findings.
