HI,
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.

Hi there, the only reason it doesn't work it's because the wireless key is not correct. It usually shows limited connectivity when the wireless key is not correct. Even just a letter upper or lower case will cause the problem. Since you are connected with the other computer go under the Router settings and double check the wireless key. Check what kind of encryption the router is using, make sure your wireless adapter can support it.

Wireless not working


the best advice is to contact Sony directly. This way a technician can diagnose your current issue and in the event there is a severe problem they can dispatch a technician in you area with the replacement part to repair your unit. be advised you will be asked in some cases to provide a purchase receipt. i have dealt many times with sony and they are pretty thorough about resolving these types of issues.

couple of thoughts, if your machine recently did some updates you may have had an issue during that period causing it to go offline or not be recognized in the device manager. but above all during the warranty period you want to deal directly with the manufacturer.
