SOURCE: Wireless Network stopped detecting ALL local networks

Hi, Have you installed the driver for your wireless card since you re-formatted?

Right click on my computer and go to properties, select device manager. all of your hardware will be listed there. are there any yellow question marks? these are devices that need drivers.

Your wifi card will probably be called 'network adapter'. go to the sony vaio website and download the right driver for your wifi card

SOURCE: Sony Vaio laptop unable to detect wireless access point

CompuLayne: Hello bluebells953

Netgear is quite tricky as is with all other routers, but I don't think the router is your problem. Try to do the following.

1) Turn off Vaio laptop
2) unplug router
3) unplug modem
4) plug back in modem - wait for it to boot up
5) plug back in router - wait for it to boot up
6) turn back on the Vaio - log in and see if it sees the SID. If it isn't broadcasting, you might have to enter it in manually and select connect to non broadcasting network

SOURCE: sony vaio vgn-nr160e with vista, function+ keys wont work

Hi,
To enable the Fn keys functionality, you need to install the "Vaio Event Service" and "Sony Utility Series"
They are available to download as part of a package from the Sony website. Here is the link:

Will not connect to wifi network


Sony's Sony Vaio laptop features built-in wireless LAN adapter that allows the computer to connect to any wireless access point.


If you want to adjust the device's WiFi settings, you must use the proprietary software and hardware that comes preinstalled on the laptop and the Internet connection options that come with Windows.


Once you have all of the correct settings enabled, you can have your laptop connected to a wireless access point without any additional applications.


Enabling Wi-Fi with Wireless LAN Switch


Before you can connect to a wireless network or change any of your Wi-Fi settings, you must first enable the computer's Wi-Fi feature with the wireless LAN switch.


This switch is located directly below the laptop's screen and is labeled "Wireless." Once you have located the switch, slide it into the "ON" position.


Enable Wi-Fi in Vaio Smart Network


Once Wi-Fi has been enabled with the wireless LAN switch, you must enable Wi-Fi using the laptop's proprietary wireless connection software, "Vaio Smart Network."


To access this program, click the "Start" button in the computer's task bar and select the "All Programs" option.


Select the "VAIO Smart Network" option to launch the program.

Alternatively, you can click the VAIO Smart Network icon in the computer's task bar to launch the program.


This icon is in the shape of a green button with two white arrows on it.

Once in the application, click the switch to the right of the "Wi-Fi" heading to toggle it to the "ON" position.



Windows Connect to a Network



With Wi-Fi enabled, you must connect to the wireless network using the

"Connect to a Network" feature that is a part of the Windows operating system.


Click the network icon in the computer's task bar to bring up a list of the available wireless networks.


This icon is in the shape of a computer and an Ethernet cable if you not connected to a network.

If you are connected to a network, it is in the shape of signal bars.


Select the desired wireless network from the menu that appears and select the "Connect" option.

Enter the networks password if necessary and connect to the network.


Network and Sharing Center


If the wireless network that you want to connect to does not appear in the "Connect to a Network" window, you must connect to the network manually.


Click the network icon in the computer's task bar and select the "Open Network and Sharing Center" option.


Click the "Manage wireless networks" option, followed by the "Add" option.

Click the "Manually create a network profile" option and type the network's information in the spaces provided.


Place a checkmark next to the "Start this connection automatically" option and click the "Next" button to connect to the network.


Hope this helps

Wifi not working on my sony vaio vgn-nw270f


make sure you turn the wireless switch on. It should be on either side or the front of the laptop.

Did you configure the new router and set the wireless on it?

If your internet provider is a phone company such as AT&T did you configure the router to be PPOE (and set the userid and password) and bridged the modem that goes into the router?

If your internet provider is a cable company did you set the router to be DHCP?

Does the Sony even see the wireless network in the View Available Wireless Networks list?

Did you put the wireless key in correctly?

You didn't by chance happen to hit the FN function key on the lower left portion of the keyboard + the key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the wireless on and off? The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal )))).

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:

Is Sony Vaio PCV 6603 wireless enabled to connect to net via router?? If it isn't, is it possible to "upgrade" it to be wireless enabled?


It may be wireless enabled. Even if it isn't, then you may install wireless NIC (network interface card) that will help to retrieve the wireless signals.

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.
