If you cannot see any wireless networks, check the hardware wireless switch (should be on the front or the side depending on model) also if you look at the adaptors properties and go to configure there is sometimes a software override to the hard ware switch

let me know if thats the info you needed

1) your DSL speed band only 1.5M and the upload could be lower then 256K speed. that is not avalible to get good condition for more laptop wireless online at same time

Pavilion wont stay connected to internet through linksys router

without looking at laptops myself, if it's not a problem where somehow a connection got loose or built up dust and debris, then it could be a hardware issue where the pavilion wifi isn't as good as the vaio's. The same thing happens to me on my hp pavilion dv2000.

Sony Vaio laptop unable to detect wireless access point

CompuLayne: Hello bluebells953

Netgear is quite tricky as is with all other routers, but I don't think the router is your problem. Try to do the following.

1) Turn off Vaio laptop
2) unplug router
3) unplug modem
4) plug back in modem - wait for it to boot up
5) plug back in router - wait for it to boot up
6) turn back on the Vaio - log in and see if it sees the SID. If it isn't broadcasting, you might have to enter it in manually and select connect to non broadcasting network : "We Fix Computers in 48Hrs! : We Are That Easy"

Internet problem

It could be several problems:
1. Your wireless router misconfiguration.
2. Your wireless router is bad
3. Your wireless card misconfiguration on your laptop
4. Your wireless card is bad.

If you never had problems with your wireless connection before and you haven't change configuration on your router or your laptop. I have seen and repaired this problem by replaceing wireless router.

Good luck!!!

Cannot connect new laptop to internet

Do you have a router set up? If not two things you can do:

1) Buy and setup wireless router wired with desktop and wireless with laptop.


2) Remove network cable from back of Desktop and plug into laptop each time you want to use Internet. Cheaper option but more hassle to switch back and forth.

My belkin router wont work :(

If you access your router, look at the wireless settings, you may need to change a setting to allow b + g connections, your laptop may have a 'b' adapter.

You seem to have two (2) problems:
1. wireless connection;
2. powering up.

On powering up, pls try:
a. charge the batteries at least overnight;
b. run the laptop with the AC adapter only and the battery removed;
c. do "b" but delay powering on the laptop for a couple of minutes.

On the wireless, pls try:
i. determine if a WEP or WPA security key is being used;
ii. check your router configurations;
iii. do a reset of your router (this would of course would set the router to default/factory values. This would be a last recourse since it is possible you will loose all Internet connectivity. Better to save your router configurations or copy them down somewhere.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Loss of Connectivity

Libog1 - did you install any additional wireless software to connect to the router (Linksys software) or are you just allowing Vista to connect directly using Windows' built-in wireless management?

Accessing encrypted wireless network

Hi Mike,

The password is only used in conjunction with the username when accessing the router via its web interface at At default, the username is "admin" and the password is 

none/blank. Initially, to acces some ISPs, the DLink would also ask for a password but once set will never ask again except when a reset is done.

On the old PC with the D-Link DWL -G122:
1. there is no need for a network key since you are not using one (as you posted) and therefore should be set to Open/Disabled/Not used;
2. When you installed the software from the CD that came with  the D-Link USB wireless adapter on the old PC, other than the usual driver, it is highly possible that another software was installed. This is the DLink Configuration Utility which should be used to configure/connect the G122 rather than the built-in Windows WiFi Configuration. You can verify if this was installed under your Start/All Programs/D-Link Air USB/D-Link Air Utility. If present, use this to initially configure the G122.

hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need further information.

Good luck and kind regards.
