Laptop does not connect to location free base upon restart

I have a SONY laptop and SONY Location Free Base Station. When I turn my laptop off and later turn it back on I can no longer connect to the location free base station. This gets real annoying when I have to re-register almost daily. Is there some thing that I could use to avoid this?

I have a KX-TG6700 base station and 4 Handsets. When I have been calling on the handsets I have recently found that there is static on the line. Later I realized that there is problem with the DTMF being...

The KX-TG6700 manual at:


For best performance
Base unit location/avoiding noise
The base unit and other compatible
Panasonic units use radio waves to
communicate with each other.
For maximum distance and noise-free
operation, we recommend the following:
LPlacing the product away from electrical
LPlacing the base unit in a HIGH and
CENTRAL location with no obstructions
such as walls.
LRaising the antennas vertically.
LIf you use the handset near a microwave
oven which is being used, noise may be
heard. Move away from the microwave
oven and closer to the base unit.
LIf you use the handset near another
cordless phone’s base unit, noise may
be heard. Move away from the other
cordless phone’s base unit and closer to
your base unit.

Have you considered all these points?

Is there a way you can move the base station to another location in your house to see if the problem get better? I don't beleive your base station is faulty, I suspect interference from something.

I don't think the 2.4GHz set is causing any issues, but you never know, try unplugged it for a while to investigate.

If you do determine that the base station is faulty there probably isn't many options to get it repair other than sending it to Panasonic. May be cheaper to buy a new base station to go with your extra handsets.

Good Luck!

Where can we find the setup mode?

I assume your trying to use location free, and it would be located on the base station that you would have purchased.

WLAN orange light blinking

Wi-Fi base station: Understanding and resolving a blinking amber status light Your Wi-Fi base station status light blinks amber.
Here are some of the more common reasons that the status light may blink amber:
  • The Wi-Fi base station has not yet been configured because it is new.
  • The Wi-Fi base station has been reset.
  • A new firmware update is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
  • No IP address is available for the Wi-Fi base station.
  • A Wi-Fi base station in Extended Mode is out-of-network Wi-Fi range of a primary Wi-Fi base station.
  • The WAN Ethernet cable is unplugged from the Wi-Fi base station.
  • The Wi-Fi base station lacks a path to the Internet (or local router).
  • Internet access may be temporarily unavailable from your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
  • Your AirPort Time Capsule has detected that the internal hard drive has reported a SMART error, and is failing (This requires firmware 7.5.2, and AirPort Utility 5.5.2).
A persistent, blinking, amber status light indicates that your Wi-Fi base station may require your attention.
How to resolve a blinking amber status light alert
Launch AirPort Utility to determine why your Wi-Fi base station status light is blinking amber.
Apple recommends that you use AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Mac, AirPort Utility 5.5.2 for Windows, or a newer version of AirPort Utility if one is available.
  1. AirPort Utility 5.2 or later opens automatically if your Wi-Fi base station requires your attention. You may also choose to launch AirPort Utility at any time.
    Do not use any version of AirPort Utility earlier than 5.0.
    In Mac OS X, AirPort Utility is located in the Applications > Utilities folder.
    In Microsoft Windows, AirPort Utility can be located by clicking Start > All Programs > AirPort.
    Note: You may also locate and download the latest Wi-Fi base station firmware and software by clicking here.
  2. In the AirPort Utility window, locate your Wi-Fi base station and double-click on it to open the Summary window. Note: If you have more than one Wi-Fi base station, double-click on the icon for the Wi-Fi base station that has the amber circle next to it.
  3. When the Summary window appears, double-click the amber circle to the right of Wi-Fi base station Status to open the Status window.
  4. The Status window lists any conditions that require your attention. Respond to each item until there are no more items listed.
    : You must reset the Wi-Fi base station using the reset switch to re-enable checking for the conditions you ignored.

  5. Eliminating the blinking, amber status light may require making changes to a specific setting, or putting a checkmark in the "Ignore" checkbox beside any option you don't wish to change. A checkmark simply tells the AirPort that you are aware of the issue and you have chosen to ignore it. For example, you may wish to leave your AirPort open without a password so that anyone can join your wireless network.
  6. Click Update to apply your changes (the Wi-Fi base station will restart).
  7. After the Wi-Fi base station has restarted, the status light should be green and not blinking. If the status light stays amber in color and blinks after the Wi-Fi base station restarts, you may repeat the steps above.

Connecting Lenovo Tablet to Sony XBR TV

Hi swampole,
You'll need to purchase a Sony Location Free base station and software (included). Try this link:

The Sony Location Free base station can transmit your TV, or most any video signal for that matter, to your laptop as long as it has the Location Free software installed, wi-fi capability, and is within range. It can also transmit your programming over the web so you can watch via broadband and not even need to be home! The only drawback I have experienced is that if the signal is not strong enough, there is a choppiness to the video stream (not unlike watching videos online sometimes), and there is a 4 second delay due to encryption/decryption, but this really does not matter if you're not watching a "live" feed.
I have installed these units for clients and use one as well from time to time to watch TV from rooms without one. Good luck and hope this helps!
