Wireless button not lit and cant connect to internet

Hiya

my computer (Sony Vaio VGN-NR10E/S) was wrking fine the day before yesterday. But then yesterday for some reason the wireless button on my laptop wudnt lit and I cudnt get it to connect to internet. But the device manager was working as i tried it on different computer. I tried using ethernet cable and it worked fine. But i wanted it to wrk wireless. After searchin the site, i found a similar problem and the solution by leecom72 was as follows:
"
This method will hard reset the wireless drivers back to default settings, but before you perform this remove power from the modem and router for 2 minutes reconnect power and wait another 2 minutes for them to settle down.

What i want you to do is right click "computer" select "manage" and then "device manager", a list will populate, then click on the + sign next to "network adapters" and right click on the wireless adapter and "uninstall" the device, reboot the PC and wait for windows to detect the wireless card and install the drivers for it, this will appear in the system tray (bottom right hand side) when its done try to connect again.
"

This worked perfectly, but the thing is everytime i shut my computer down and strt again i have to repeat the process. is there ne solution to this???

Please help

Make sure that there are only on set of driver in device manager as this will cause a conflc in the driver cache the system see,s more that one driver and trys to reload the driver go to iternet options and clear all files and history and try to reinstall the drivers make sure that all drivers are uninstalled before trying to reinstall the drivers.

I want to get all my sony vaio vgn-s590b driver program because i cant get wifi signal n lan for the internet'


Hi,

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:

Sony Vaio VGN Ar230g My computer turns on and works fine but when i try getting online or try using messengers or any other programs related with online things, the internet doesnt work. I tried formatting...


1) Make sure it has a Wireless Card

2) Make sure You connect to a wireless access point before you get online.

You can try using firefox, if the PC is saying your getting a connection, if it works, try turning off proxy in your internet settings.
