Question about Microsoft Broadband Networking MN-500 Wireless Base Station (L21-00001) Router

1 Answer

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

Hello p.c. proffessional's: my name is Harold, I just recieved a Kodack ESP 3200 series...All in one printer for Christmas. My two questions for now are, Can i hook this printer to my xp window...


Question 1: You should be able to hook it up to that.
Question 2: It's rather simple - here are the steps (these will work on any USB printer):
1. Install the drivers from the CD.
2. Plug in the printer's power (If it hasn't told you to already).
3. Plug in the USB cable (If it hasn't told you to already).

I have the sony vaio SZ-360P and i installed windows 7 on. I try to search the web for the graphic driver but still nothing,and im trying to guess what kind of VGA I have so my question can u help with...


First the easiest way is to try to update the VGA (Display) Drivers automatically from internet. Right Click My Computer and go to Properties - then Device Manager. Look for VGA Display Adapters (Drivers) in the list. Right Click the Display Adaptor and Choose update Drivers automatically. This will update the Drivers automatically from windows update and install the latest compatible drivers (if available).

Secondly, Sony Vaio SZ-360P is compatible with Windows Vista. Hence, there is a great possibility the VGA Drivers for Vista would work. So, download the Vista Drivers and try them.
Good Luck!
Hope this helps!

I cant plot from AutoCad 2006, using My hp


hmmm.. we only have two computers at my work connected to a router. the designjet has a network card going straight to it. i connect to the router wireless and it reads vista. my boss connects to the design jet thru the router as well with a network card rj cable with xp pro. as for our printer it can be connected via router and does work fine but my boss has it directely connected to his computer and i share it off of his system. then we also have a zerox machine connected via router as well. maybe your router is going out? try a new one or a better one and see if that fixes it. it maybe defected or time for a new one.......

if it was working before then maybe its the router.

I just bought this new laptop and it has Vista on it... then the MS Office Home/Student 2007 and that kept asking me for a Prod Key... I tried the one on the laptopand it says incorrect key


most of the time new computers will have a 60 day free trial of ms office on it. it will use a different key than the one that is printed on the computer. that one is for windows vista. if you bought ms office with it, it should have a separate product key for that.

My vaio sz series laptop lcd have blue lines sometimes in different part. how can I fixed?


Update your video card driver if error remains,
Re-install your video card driver if error remains,
Connect your machine to an external monitor and see if display is ok.
If all of these didn't solve your problem I suspected your motherboard is faulty.

Note: If machine is under warranty no need to pay for the repairs.
