Question about Computers & Internet
My wireless adapter keeps disconnecting. It'll not register any networks for days and I have to then use the Ethernet cord to plug into it directly. After a couple days...it allows me to connect wirelessly as normal, while also being able to detect other networks. After about a day or 2 of wireless use, the whole thing starts up again and will not work. I' have tried everything that I found on the net for troubleshooting tips. This has happened out of the blue and not long after my USB ports simply stopped working.

Hi, Have you installed the driver for your wireless card since you re-formatted?
Right click on my computer and go to properties, select device manager. all of your hardware will be listed there. are there any yellow question marks? these are devices that need drivers.
Your wifi card will probably be called 'network adapter'. go to the sony vaio website and download the right driver for your wifi card

SOURCE: CL51-15 USB Port Problem
I have the same problem with the USB's not working. Suppliers say Motherboard problem. solved it by purchasing a PCMCIA to USB port. at least i now have 2 USB ports. you could probably get one with 3 ports.

You may need to update your Wireless drivers:
Unlike the newer laptops, the T42 doesn't have it's own wireless switch. So in order to get the wireless working, you need to also make sure that the Power Management driver and the Hotkey driver are installed as well.
Load the drivers in this order:
1) Power Management driver - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4GXPEG
2) Hotkey driver - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-68000
3) Wireless Driver - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70504
After downloading it, you must go into C>Drivers>Win>Wlanint and run the setup file from there.
4) Access Connections (Optional) - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-4ZLNJB
