Question about Toshiba TE2100 Notebook

Wireless not working

Hi,

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NR212Z that is supposed to have wireless, but I can't get it to work. The laptop is still under warranty, so I just want to check whether I am being blonde, or if really it should be working and isn't, before I send the laptop back for a replacement.

I followed the Start, Run, cmd, ipconfig and got 0.0.0.0 as the ip address.

I should then check the connection configuration and the adaptor. How do I do that?

Thanks,
Kerry

Hello Kerry,

I think your wireless LAN switch is probably turned off. Most laptops these days come with these switches so that we can conserve battery by turning them off when not needed.It would look like this

Just slide it to the other side and your wireless ill be on.

    The only other thing I can think of is that your LAN driver is probably not installed or the one installed is haveing some compatibility issues. Open device manager and check if the WLAn is reporting any error messages. Sony has also created a detailed documentation on wireless connection issues here:

    Hope that helped,
    Sai.

I want to get all my sony vaio vgn-s590b driver program because i cant get wifi signal n lan for the internet'


Hi,

Unfortunately, the Wireless card in the VAIO model VGN-S580B does not support n standard. The integrated Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection Driver supports IEEE 802.11b and IEEE 802.11g standards. It is require to use an external Wireless card to use the n standard.

However, here is the link to download all the drivers for your computer model:

Finding wireless card type my Vaio VGN-FS660 laptop has


You will have to remove the cover to the wireless card (located on the bottom of the machine) to see exactly what it is. Then you can go to the manufacturer web site, and download the correct software/drivers.

VGN-S150 wireless LAN switch


You don't need a new computer, a wireless card maybe. The problem is either a wireless driver glitch or the wireless card has failed. Start by uninstalling the wireless drivers from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the wireless card and reinstall the drivers. If this doesn't work, then take the card out (located under a panel on the bottom of the machine), clean the card, the slot, and the connectors on the two leads/wires. Sometimes a little dirt or corrosion build up will cause this. At this point, if the problem persists, then the card has malfunctioned and needs to be replaced.

Wireless network connection


you may need to run the network wizard, as your sony may not be set up as using a gateway type connection and may be instructing other pcs to connect via itself and not on the network.
