Question about Sony VAIO PCG-K23 Notebook
I have a Sony Vaio laptop running Windows XP Pro, up until recently I have had no problems getting online, for wireless, I use a Belkin net. card, and it does show, when I am near enough, a good strong signal, and at home, I could plug straight in to my IP modem, or i could connect through the home computer, no problem, can't do that either. I have since installed, uninstalled a lot of things, and there are a few programs that hang (in other words, it could be a few different reasons its not working) I did call my IP support, and it sounded like everything was okay up to a point, then was told to go to ipconfig, release and renew, and I dont remember what it said, something about a kernel? I just tried it, but I don't recall how to do the release/renew command.all it says now is local area connection media disconnected and under that is psuedo-interface with connection, ip address, and default gateway with a question mark after.and my wireless is with windows wireless connect I am not sure how these settings are supposed to be, and I could use some help setting those right, also. The catch-22 here is I could probably do a clean re-install or repair with my cd's, but my dvd/cd-rom drive has quit working (I have heard that it's a driver update thing, but I can't download drivers unless I get online. Please help, I am dead in the water here! Thanks
