    I have a VGC-LT16E and am having the same problem. I know the wireless works, at least for a few seconds 'cause a few things like the weather gadget get updated on startup. But then the wlan indicator light on the side of the box goes out and no wireless.

    I've been wondering if this was another thing Vista update broke.

I would suggest first to try to take one stick of memory out and try to boot up the pc. Sometimes, one or both of the memory sticks can go bad or the memory slot on the motherboard itself can go bad. If that is not the case I would then remove all of the usb connected to the computer and last i would test the power supply.

How to turn on the wireless card on Sony pcg11211L


If your computer will not connect to a wireless Internet signal, one of the first things to check is whether your computer's wireless switch is turned on.

Many laptop computers have a switch located on the exterior of the computer that controls its ability to connect to wireless networks.

This switch can be accidentally turned off, preventing users from connecting to the Internet.

Determine if your computer's wireless connectivity has been disabled by viewing the network icon in the lower toolbar on your computer's desktop.

When there is a disruption in your computer's Internet connection, the icon will have a red X through it. For further information, go to the computer's Network and Sharing Center where you can troubleshoot connectivity issues and view available wireless networks.

If the computer isn't recognizing any wireless connections (and you're sure that there are wireless signals in your area), the likely problem is that the wireless switch is turned off.

Locate the wireless switch on your computer.

It may be located on either side of the laptop or along the back or front.
If you aren't sure whether your computer has a wireless switch, check the user guide that came with the unit.

Determine whether the switch is currently in the "On" or "Off" position.
The switch will be clearly labeled.

Push the switch in the direction of the "On" position to ensure that it is turned on.
If the switch was already turned on, see if there is a keyboard combination that will activate your laptop's wireless capability.

The key combination for your laptop will depend on your computer's manufacturer, but will generally involve a combination of the Function, Control or Alt and the F1 to F12 keys.

Check your user manual for your computer's key combination.

Lost wireless capability


Why is there no lan? Did you somehow turn the wireless off? Are other computers able to connect to the wireless if so that means your wireless is probably off.

Maybe you don't have your wireless turned on. Look on both sides and in front for the Wireless Switch and turn it on.

Also once the wireless switch is turned on there are keystrokes that can toggle the wireless on or off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key located at the lower left of the keyboard, then hit the correct F1 thru F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) on it. Or it might have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal icon )))). Normally the screen will display Wireless On or Wireless Off when you toggle the wireless.

Some laptops will have a button to push that toggles the wireless. it might be located on either side or front or just above the keyboard.

If no other computers are able to connect then go to the wireless router and unplug it for 30 seconds, then plug it back up. If you have a modem and a router, you only want to unplug the wireless router.

Vaio 497xp upgrade to windows 7 lost wireless capability


If you have internet, then just right click "Computer" icon on desktop, select 'manage' and then select 'device manager' in the "Computer Management" screen. Check for any entries with '!' or'?'. Most probably your 'wireless hardware' will have such a mark beside it. Right click on that entry select 'update driver software'. If you would have had a driver cd of your laptop, then you could have used 'Browse my computer for driver software', whereas in this case use 'Search automatically for updated driver software'. Your computer will search the internet for most appropriate drivers and install it. Hope this will help you out.

Cant find where to get wireless internet on my pcv-w1


Not all laptop computers have built-in wireless capability,
but all the newest ones do.

You may need to purchase either a PCMCIA or a USB wireless-adapter, and insert the adapter into the appropriate slot, to add wireless capability.

Is there a rest button on the Sony VAIO VGC-RB50 PC Desktop?


Hello,

Do you mean Reset button?

Computers these days do not have Reset buttons. What you can do is hold the power button on for about 5 seconds and the computer will shut down. Press it again and the computer will boot up again.

If this is not what you mean, please explain futher.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Is Sony Vaio PCV 6603 wireless enabled to connect to net via router?? If it isn't, is it possible to "upgrade" it to be wireless enabled?


It may be wireless enabled. Even if it isn't, then you may install wireless NIC (network interface card) that will help to retrieve the wireless signals.
