Re: wireless conection

Typically, there is a key combination to turn your wireless on and off. The combination is most often the FN key + F8. If you look at keys F1 thru F12, you will find a key that has a blue symbol that looks like a transmitting antenna. You will need to hit the FN key + the key with that symbol. I, too, have a similar problem, but the key combination is not working. I hope you don't have that problem.

Could be a possibility that the drivers for the web cam got corrupted in the last few days. You may either try to install the drivers for the camera again by downloading the drivers from the manufacturer's website or you may restore the computer back to a state when everything was working fine.

Chcek if there's a wifi switch and if it's turned on. Try going to a wifi hotspot and see if your system can detect any wireless networks. If not, uninstall and reinstall your wireless drivers.

Hi - VAIO vgn-fz21m - can't locate the wireless switch/function

when you try to connect to the wireless network, you must be getting a message " turn on the wireless switch on your laptop "
See there must be a sliding switch on your laptop. it could be on the side panel or on the front panel. Try to locate the wireless switch on the laptop.
it must be having a wireless symbol on it like TOWER or Wireless signals.
On some laptops it is a combination of keys like Fn+F2 or Fn+F5.
If you have the user manual you will find the information about the wireless switch.
