Wifi connection problems

I've had my advent laptop for over a year but in the last few months i've been having problems with the internet connection.

It initially finds the wireless network and connects but after a few minutes, if that, it disconnects and can find no wireless networks in range.

A friend of mine with the same laptop is having the same problems so i dont think its an issue with my particluar laptop.

    I'm having the same issue. It's not the router. I've found others online who are having the same issue but with different vaio models. I've been in contact with sony to get the issue resolved, but they are being no help. Does anyone out there have a real solution???

    Are you using any other software to try to find connections such as NetStumbler? Also, are you using microsoft software to connect or are you using different software?

Appears to be an issue with the wireless router. Can you borrow another wireless router to try or connect directly through the ethernet port?

The computer just doesn't seem to have enough range to connect to the internet but my other computer has no problem connecting from the same distance


If it has built in wifi and has ever been dropped the antenna wires may have come off the wifi card if it has significantly less range than your other laptop

Hello, I've had my D-Link router for about 5 years now. The model is WBR-1310. The connection worked fine up until today. I took off the connectivity between the router and my PC about 6 months ago,...


If the default password on the D-Link has been changed then-
To reset the D-Link back to the default settings -
Press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router with the power ON untilthe LEDs flash at the time the release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, openthe browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link's configuration URL..
http://192.168.0.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop withthe router's wireless settings.

Why do need to contact my network admin, or service provider. Doesn't make it very mobile?


If I understood correct, the computer is asking you to connect to the internet through a service provider. What this means is that you are not identified as having a real access to the internet.

You actually have three ways of connecting to the internet, when connecting from a laptop:
  1. with a wire, and then connecting it to a source of internet (like a modem)
  2. wireless - which means that you must have a wireless internet provider (WiFi). For example, a lot of the coffee shops have a WiFi access, which means that you can ask for a username and a password when you enter a coffee shop, and then may connect to the internet.
  3. a cellular card, which is provided usually by a cellular provider services. You can purchase it for a few bucks each month, and then you should be connected to the internet anywhere you want to (with a WiFi or without it)
A laptop is pretty mobile, but it depends where...

My advent netbook will not connect to wireless internet. I have had no problems for past 6 months but all of a sudden it won't connect and network diagnosis says consult manufacturer's troubleshooting...


Have you tried to connect using the same internet connection at all times? (sorry, just to be sure). Try to dissable the adapter via device manager, restart the computer and once windows is fully loaded up, re-enable it. If it did not fix it, look for the latest drivers in the laptop manufacturer's web site and install them. That should get it fixed. Good luck.
