Check wireless status to confirm you have full access. You may have the wireless connection but not the internet connection. Power cycle the router. Temporarily turn off the firewall. If you have another system, test the connection with it.

Sony Vaio netbook will not connect to internet - says limited connection


That's usually your router, not the computer. Sounds like your computer is connected to your router, but IT is not connected to the internet.
I would suggest shutting down the computer, shutting down router, then the modem, plug the modem back in, waiit for lights to finish blinking (should be within a few minutes) then your router, once that's finished blinking, then turn on your computer.

No internet connection


if you are worried about the icons that are sown in the tray system ( lower right in the task bar ) those are showing the other connections that are not working at the time ...for example the LAN cable conection ...and the blue tooth ..those will appear not connected if you have no cable on the Lan card or blue tooth device connection ...even if you are connected via wireless those will appear unless you choose to unchecked the show in tray ...
if you are asking about the connection you have made wireless and it doesnt work ...you probably have a driver problem ..just reinstall the driver for the wireless card if you know that the connection should work ...if you have acces on the net wireless those icons that are x-ed on the right on the task bar are for the other connection methods ..so do not worry ..

I have a sony vaio PCG-7141L with WI-FI but I can't connect to internet due to a secure network password, what can I do?


Firstly, are you trying to use your wireless internet or someone elses?

Because if it's someone elses, thats exactly why they've put the password on so that other people can't use their connection.

However, if it's your wireless network you're trying to connect to, then it would be worth using your wireless cd software to change your password to something you know or to take it off completely (not reccomended as others can use your connection). You can put the cd in your own laptop and change the password.

Hope this helpe =]

Internet problem


It could be several problems:
1. Your wireless router misconfiguration.
2. Your wireless router is bad
3. Your wireless card misconfiguration on your laptop
4. Your wireless card is bad.

If you never had problems with your wireless connection before and you haven't change configuration on your router or your laptop. I have seen and repaired this problem by replaceing wireless router.

Good luck!!!

Cannot connect new laptop to internet


Do you have a router set up? If not two things you can do:

1) Buy and setup wireless router wired with desktop and wireless with laptop.

OR

2) Remove network cable from back of Desktop and plug into laptop each time you want to use Internet. Cheaper option but more hassle to switch back and forth.

DO I have wireless?


Hi, im sure the PCG-K315M dont have a built in wireless card, You can buy a Usb wireless card for about 20-30 pounds from any shop. If your laptop did have wireless onboard there should be a switch on one of the sides of the laptop,

Have a good christmas
