The Dell Inspiron 1520 originally shipped with the Windows Vista operating system, but newer models now include Windows 7. Many users run into problems with the wireless network adaptor on this model because it can be physically turned off. The wireless adaptor has a four-position toggle switch on the left side of the computer, near the back. When the adaptor is turned off, the computer will not send or receive any signal via the wireless network adaptor.
