    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.

SOURCE: WIRELESS CAPABILITY ON SONY VAIO

Always check Device Manger before buying any new hardware as it may just have been the drivers and not the hardware itself. Click on start>right-click My Computer>properties>hardware>device manager. Find Network adapter and see if it has a yellow, red or black X. If so then right click, and update drivers. Don't do this on the Netgear as the drivers have already been replaced with the Netgear drivers so you 'll never know about that one..

SOURCE: Problem with Sony Vaio pcv-rx860 (screen goes black at startup)

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 wireless capability?


It depends brand of laptop.
Some Brands have a switch bellow the keyboard like Sony Vaio.
Others have a keyboard command,like press Function key and F12 or F13. You can see it on the keys of the keyboard.
Another way is clicking the wireless icon bellow the deskbar and disable the wireless connection.
Then the Laptop will work in the ethernet mode(with Ethernet cable)

How to turn on wireless capability vpcl137fx


Have you looked on both sides of your computer and at the front for a Wireless Switch that has to be turned on? Once the switch is turned on, normally a set of keystrokes can toggle the wireless on and off. Normally you would Press and Hold the FN function key then hit the correct F1 through F12 key that toggles the wireless. The correct F1 thru F12 key will normally have the wireless icon )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal )))) around it. Also when you toggle the wireless by keystrokes the screen displays Wireless On or Wireless Off.

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.
