Go to control Panel : System : Hardware manager.

Find your wifi device and delete it.

Shut down PC, and turn on.

O/S will detect new hardware. (if it does not detect, your card is faulty and warranty work is required)

Let the card re-install.

Retry.

Sony Laptops use an antenna behind the LCD, and it is common for the wires that run into the hing to be damaged.

Also, remove the panel from the underside of the laptop and remove/re-seat the wifi card. It may have been 'bumped' out of place.

Thanks for using FixYa

Under control panel look for System and then open it up and go to device manager and there you can check if the wireless card is working properly or not, check under network adapter if you can see the wireless card there if its not there it only means one thing its not working, but if its there right click on it and go to properties and check the device status...

If you already re-installed the files, and ensured that you correctly activated the wireless card, but you still do not get the card recognised, then the hardware is probably faulty.

In this case you need to contact Sony to show them thet you already have done all the steps and you will get the unit repaired.

Si vous avez installe' les pilotes de l'ordinateur, et vous avez active' correctement le resau sans fil, alors vous devez de contacter sony pour reserver la reparation de l'ordinateur.

Hi, sending this card back for a factory repair will be the best decision at this point. the internals are damaged and will not be able to transmit or receive information.

    Click on the control panel and click on the icon labeled Network connections. there will be a connection that should say connected and firewalled. if this connection says disconnected, your card is ruined. if it reads connected. its OK.

As the pc manufacturer will not support if the card is not getting detected.just check out any other same card on your system or check the card in any other similar system.also check out if the drivers are proper and the wifi connection turned on.to the local repair center of computer hardware and software get the card seperately checked to confirm the fault.

Go to menu option in the control panel that says network and internet options, click that, it will then show that that u have a connection or not, if not and nothing else has changed then your card has a problem, I would also contact sony tech support first before you do anything, they will have to approve the return, they will ask u to do certain tests to verify the problem.

Can't get wireless connection to work


Is the wireless card driver installed and working?
Can the wireless card detect your Netgear Router and does it have a strong signal strength?
The Wireless card needs to be configured with the Netgear Router's SSID and encryption settings before it will communicate with the Netgear Router.
Let me know if you have further problems together with error messages.

I have a Intel wireless Wifi link 5100 card but I think this card is not working any more. I want to check this point to see if I must send back my laptop to Sony


plug the card into your computer if its not internally installed...click START , controll panel, double click on system, select the hardware tab, then select device manager....scroll down to "network adapters" click on the plus next to it.
If there is a yellow ! or ? next to your wireless device the drivers are not present, corrupted, or installed incorrectly and need to be reinstalled for the wireless card to work properly.
If you find a problem there the driver is available here : http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWORK-CARD/INTEL/Intel-WiFi-Link-5100-5350-Driver-12-2-0-11.shtml download it to your desktop, unxip it if neccessary and install. Please post again here if you need further assistance.
