If wireless connection drops its not all the time your laptop issue... its router transmitted channel conflict with laptop wireless card channel....
You might fix this by changing the router wireless setting by changing the transmission channel on it.and then re connect the laptop or it may auto reconnect with it and hopefully signal will not drop.

one is network card for cable connection to internet
one is wireless card for wireless connection to your router(with internet connection)

My "sony vaio vgn txn15p"


if your Sony is older then 3 yrs I urge you to get a new battery. Make it last longer by draining the battery and charging it up everyday. This gives it a work out and helps it not get lazy.

Cannot connect laptop with the eithernet cord


If you cannot connect your laptop using an Ethernet cable, make sure the laptop's wireless ethernet is disabled. To disable it in window xp, click the Start button and open the Control Panel. Double-click Network Connections. Right-click Wireless Network Connection and select Disable from the drop-down list.

04e3ee0.png If you are using a laptop with Windows Vista, click the Start Button and type Network and Sharing into the Start Search box. Select Network and Sharing Center from the Programs list. Select Manage Network Connections from the left pane of the window. The Network Connections window will open. Click on Wireless Network Connection. Select Disable this Network Device at the top of the window.

After disabling the laptop's wireless connection, be sure to restart the computer before trying to connect with the Ethernet cable again. If you still cannot connect the laptop to the network with an Ethernet cable after rebooting, check to make sure there is not a problem with the network itself. If there are others nearby connected to the same network, such as in your office, dorm or another public location, ask them whether they are currently able to connect to the network. If no one else is using the network, contact the system administrator or your Internet service provider to see if there may be an outage. This step can save you plenty of time troubleshooting if there is an outage in your area!
Troubleshoot the Ethernet Cable
If there is no problem with the network itself, the reason that you cannot connect the laptop may be the ethernet cable. Make sure that the Ethernet Cable is securely connected to both the laptop and the wall outlet. If possible, try connecting the Ethernet cable into another wall jack or port on the router, and then try using a different Ethernet cable. The Ethernet cable you are using may be damaged.


8686681.png Troubleshoot Network Settings
If the Ethernet cable does not seem to be the reason why you cannot connect to the network, check the laptop's network settings. In Windows XP, open the Control Panel and select Network Connections. Open Local Area Connection and check the status of the connection.
In Windows Vista, go to the Network and Sharing Center and select Diagnose and Repair from the left pane and wait for the results.


If the Local Area Connection is listed as Disabled, right-click it and choose Enable.
If it says that the network adapter is unplugged and you have ruled out a problem with the Ethernet cable and port, the laptop's network adapter may have failed. Try using the same Ethernet cable on another computer. If you are able to connect to the network on another computer using the same Ethernet cord, contact the laptop's manufacturer, a computer repair technician or replace the network adapter yourself.

Sony vaio vgn-fs630/w. the ethernet port and usb ports not workin


Hi,
The best thing you can try is a Static discharge.
Please remove all the external devices. Unplug the power adaptor.Remove the battery. There should be no electricity connected.
Then press the power button and keep your finger on it for about 30 seconds to release any build up electricity.
Plug in the adaptor and battery again and see if there is still a problem.
Maybe is a good idea to get a surge protector in the future.
Regards,
Purito

I reformatted the hard drive and reinstalled Windows Xp on my Sony N-TXN15p laptop. Now my CD/DVD drive isn't being recognized. What can I do?


You will need the drivers for the drive. When you look at the devices in device manager (devmgmt.msc) do you see any drives under DVD/CD-ROM drives?

Toshiba Satellite ethernet port disappeared...


I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped.
To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop..
To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.
