Windows 8 keeps losing WiFi config


You can test it with an external wifi adapter. I use Edimax nano USB WiFi adapter (it cost around $15) and it has its own drivers and applications. Please don't forget to disable your internal wifi adapter after installing the external wifi adapter.

It's a common problem when a OS upgrade is done. Open the Device Manager, how many "Unknown Devices" are listed? In Device Manager under Network Adapters is the Wireless device listed? Try here for the Win 8 Pro 64bit drivers: http://www.sony.co.in/support/product/sve14112en/download

Laptop wireless work, was reinstalling windows


Check among the CDs you got when you bought your laptop. You'll see one called 'drivers'. Inside your drivers CD you'll find a Network Adapter driver. Install it and your wireless should work.

How do i know if my network card is not good?


Hi,

You can verify the status of your network card on the Device Manager (Right-click My Computer then click Properties. Go to Hardware then Device Manager). On the Device Manager click on the plus (+) sign beside Network Adapter and then double-click on your network adapter. It will show the status if it the device is working properly or if there's an error. Post back for any error you may see.

Hi, please check the status of the adapter using the steps below:

1. Click Start and go to 'control panel'.
2. Double click on 'system'.
3. Click on 'hardware'.
4. Click 'Device manager' button.
5. Under 'Network Adapters' you will find the name of Netgear adapter.

Check if it shows installed properly or shows with an error code.

You may try installing the adapter on another machine to isolate the issue further.

Wireless radio control problem


Try going into the Device Manager and making sure the Wireless Adapter is enabled. Click Start > Control Panel > System. Click the Hardware tab then click the Device Manager button. Now click the Plus [+] next to Network adapters then double-click the wireless adapter which is probably the Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection which will open the Properties dialog. Ensure the Device status reads, "This device is working properly" and Device usage shows "Use this device (enable)." If either the Device status or Device usage shows anything other than what is shown above, first try to change the Device usage, which should change the Device status. Now try again to use your wireless adapter. You might need to press Fn + F5 to turn the device on.

Wifi connectivity problem


It's possible that the driver for your wireless adapter is already installed. Check under Device Manager > Network Adapters if there is anything pertaining to your wireless adapter. Make sure that your wireless adapter (under Device manager > Network adapters) does not have any red X or yellow question mark.

Red X indicated that it's disabled , while yellow question mark will suggest that you need to update the driver. If your wireless adapter is working properly under Device Manager > Network adapters then you will need to configure it's utility for wireless connection.

If you are running windows XP, look for the wireless icon in the lower right side of your task bar and use it to connect to your preferred network.

Good luck and have a nice day!
