If this is a laptop be sure the physical switch for the antenna on the laptop is turned on. Assuming you just got this back from repairs, they will sometimes disable the wireless connection as cpenzes was saying. Goto network connections and be sure your wireless is not set to disabled. If it is right-click icon and enable it. Ignore the 1394 wireless (this is for firewire and noted for connecting camcorders and such)

If this isn't it, I use Windows to setup my connections. In some cases like Dell, you have to turn off their software and then you should be able to double-click icon in lower left-hand corner (2 computers with red X over it" and either connect or it will ask for a security code to connect.

You sayin you download the new drivers for the wireless card? Check your device manager tab in control panel and see if the networks adapter is red or yellow. It should say what is wrong with it

My computer keeps losing the wirelsee internet, and does not show my wireless to connect to. After I push diagnose and repair it wants me to turn on my wireless switch that is all ready on.


Hi mproulx,

It is required to install the Wireless LAN Utility Update and Wireless LAN Driver Update in the Computer to fix this issue.

Here are the link to download the Updates.

Intel Wireless Network Adapter Driver Update

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNN220EW&upd_id=4751&os_id=28

Wireless Switch Setting Utility Update

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNN220EW&upd_id=2970&os_id=28


Please download and install the Updates in the Computer. Also please restart the Computer after each installation for the settings to take the effect. This should fix the issue with the Wireless.

Good Luck!

Hope this helps.

Please post back if you require further assistance.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Device manager and network adapter missing


you need to reinstall the drivers for your network, such as the ethernet and the wireless drivers. try to check if you still have the dell resource cd drivers disc. you need to insert that disc and check for the network drivers install them one at a time. if you no longer have the drivers disc then you can download it from a diff computer that has an internet connection. this is the website http://support.dell.com

click on the drivers and download and click on the green icon to enter the service tag. after that it will display all the drivers. you can download just the network first and save it to a storage device. then install that to your computer and download the rest of the drivers after you connected to the internet.

Have re-installed win xp on an IBM T42 laptop, but can not access the internet to update drivers ect


1. if you have wireless, purchase or borrow an add on usb wireless stick. this will allow you to access the internet and add in your missing drivers. 2. or add in a pci card that has ethernet connection to get your drivers. 3. use someone elses computer and download the drivers from the IBM site, put them on a usb stick and then apply them to your unit, (ie more the ethernet driver as a primary and then you can download the remaining ones as you go after it is working. hope this helps.
