There is wireless switch in on the base of the unit. next to the mic in and headphones out. It will say "wireless" next to that. If it will not detect wireelss networks after that just enable wireless adaptor in wireless switch utility. It is in the system tray next to the clock.

Wireless Lan will not turn on? The switch is on but the light does not turn on and my wireless connection does not work?


Have you installed the drivers for your adapter?
Next,be sure your router has wireless activated.Can be done on the routers home page.

You will need to enter your routers wireless security code or wep code into your laptop adaptor configuration.

Vgn fs 980 adapter how to tell if it is not working


AC adapter? Test the output voltage.

Use a multimeter.
Stores like Radio Shack, Walmart, and auto parts stores, for a few examples have cheap one's you can buy.
About $12.

Set the multimeter knob to DC volts, and the 0 to 50 Volts scale.

The middle hole of the AC adapter plug is the Positive connection. This is where the Red lead goes.

The outer shield of the plug is the Negative connection. This is where the Black lead goes.

Look on the AC adapter for the OUTPUT VOLTAGE
(Not shouting)

Example:
I'm looking at an AC adapter for an IBM Thinkpad 370, right now.

INPUT: 100V 50-60Hz 130A
OUTPUT: 18V ~~~3.36A

The Output voltage is 18 Volts
The Output Voltage of your AC adapter should be close to this.
