Can't connect to MS WirelessBaseStationMN-500 w/Vista on new Sony

I bought a new Sony VAIA SZ series, with Windows Vista, and now can't get on wireless. I picked up a new wireless router, but the salesman said to first try downloading "firmware" for the MN-500 to connect w/Vista.

I can't find any such thing. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

    I've tried all the standard Network/Internet tricks. Sony said the MN-500 is not compatible w/Vista, but the salesman at BestBuy said there would likely be a firmware solution. I can't get my Sony to connect wirelessly, but it now connects on the ethernet cable.

    Any other thoughts, or experience w/the MN-500 with Vista??
    Thanks
    Dawn

It is not a problem but a question. Can I install Outlook in windows 7 and will ntelos support it as my mailbox?


Hi,

Yes, but you will need to make sure if the version of Outlook that you have is comaptible to windows 7.
Officially only Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 are supported to run on Windows 7. This is similar to Windows Vista which also did not support earlier versions of Outlook. You can install a version prior to Outlook 2003 on Windows 7 though but there are several issues which you could encounter.
In addition to these version requirements, even with Outlook 2003 and Outlook 2007 there are several compatibility issues which you could encounter on Windows 7. The most critical of these issues have been taken care off in prior service pack releases. So before starting Outlook on Windows 7, make sure your first apply at least Service Pack 3 for Office 2003 and Service Pack 2 for Office 2007.


Hope this will help...Your response is very much appreciated...

I just signed up with at&t for wireless service and my connection keeps dropping after a couple of minutes. i have a MN-500 router and DSL service. as long as i only have my Dell PC connected directly...


Hi... If your running on XP, try theses simple steps:

1. Right-click the wireless icon on the taskbar (lower 2. Left-hand corner near time) and View available networks.

3. Left-click the "change advance settings"

4. A windows should pop up... now go to wireless tab and tick or bullet point "Let windows manage wireless connections"

5. Then click apply. Then try to connect to your wireles router again.

If the wireless tab doesn't appear, the click start and Run then type services.msc then click OK.

Double-click Wireless zero configuration and set it to automatic then press apply and click start to start the service. Then try to do the instructions again.

If you're running on Vista, disable the wireless software provided by your wireless card manufacturer to enable windows to manage wireless networks. Then try to connect to your router again.

Hope it helps!

Good Evening from MA, I have an all-in-one


Hello

I had the same problem, but i had a Asus motherboard. As far as i know they don't give any discount if you buy a new board. The thing is, the board is so expensive because it is a few years old and probably are not in mass production anymore. I live in sout africa and were looking for a new computer to buy and found a good computer in USA for just over $350 trade tax included, which is ironic if you think you have to pay $175 just for a new 'outdated" motherboard...

I would suggest that you sell the parts that you have which is still working, and buy a new computer, you can even get a much cheaper computer if you do not need good graphics and high performace. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards

Caanot establish connection from MN-500 to internet


I don't think it's your router or your computers. If you just replaced your modem it has to be the problem. If it is a DSl Modem you have to imput you account username and password. If it's a cable modem you have to call the cable company and tell them you have a new modem. Which every it is you need to contact your Internet service provider, they are the ones who can help you.

Doesn't work with windows vista


1. check if there are lights on the specific router port where you have connected the Vista (e.g. if it is on port 2, check if there are lights on #2 at the front panel of the router).
2. check the ip address by going to command prompt (click start-run-type cmd press enter. on the command prompt, type ipconfig/all)
3. ip address should be similar to what your Windows XP is getting. Subnet mask, gateway, and DNS servers should be identical.

Eg. If XP has a 192.168.1.100 IP, your Vista should have 192.168.1.x IP address where x is a variable number other than 100.

4. If your IP address, subnet mask, default gateway, and DNS seems aligned for both PCs, check your browser settings. Open IE, go to tools, internet options, network connection and make sure that never dial a connection is selected.

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?
