    I understand that... but what could prevent internet access when the computer says it is currently connected to our network (and my HP laptop is just fine)?

I need a motherboard for the SONY VAIO PCG-272M


You maybe able to get a motherboard from Sony, but if it was me I would put my money towards a new laptop which would be better and faster.
You can remove the hard drive and put it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Did you tried cable connection to your router to see if this works?
which windows its runing on?

If wireless connection drops its not all the time your laptop issue... its router transmitted channel conflict with laptop wireless card channel....
You might fix this by changing the router wireless setting by changing the transmission channel on it.and then re connect the laptop or it may auto reconnect with it and hopefully signal will not drop.

one is network card for cable connection to internet
one is wireless card for wireless connection to your router(with internet connection)

I will write more after I get your reply. As I am in the middle of my own issue now... ;)

Wireless internet connection


Hi there I would tell you why:
1) your DSL speed band only 1.5M and the upload could be lower then 256K speed. that is not avalible to get good condition for more laptop wireless online at same time
2) other thing, your laptop wieless online in your router situation that depends on the laptop wireless card type, high level (faster)card will get more speed band and aganst other laptop.
so you could not setting any more to get improved.
hope help you something fixed, please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks! keep in touch your question
