Question about Sony VAIO Notebook

1 Answer

I've had my lap top for about a year now. It used to make me connect to places that allow free wifi. Now, it says "conneted with limited access" even with a full bar signal! What should I do to resolve this?

Dont warry not a problem with your laptop. Just find out the service. i am sure right now that wifi system is limited access mode. thats why u get full signal but can't use the internet. Visit to your operator and config your LAPTOP IP with there server. It will start working again then. Thx.

How do i connet and access the internent with my wi fi


If you use a wireless router with a DSL or Cable Internet service then your laptop with a wireless card can then connect to the Internet. You can also connect to a free WiFi hot spots like McDonalds, Star Bucks, the Airport etc. using the wireless card in your laptop.
If you use the wireless 3G wireless broadband service, then you can access the Internet anywhere where your ISP has 3G wireless coverage. You need to check the service coverage area where you need Internet service.
Once you decide what type of broadband your require, then you need to check with the various Internet Service providers to see if they can offer and the cost of the various plans.
Note the download limits and the associated additional costs if you exceed the monthly download limits. Once you sign up with a Internet Service provider, their documentation will include setting up instructions and/or installation CD. http://www.fixya.com/support/r6165994-setting_up_broadband_connection

NV55C Gateway Lap Top cannot connect to wireless router


Does your WiFi work on the laptop work in another place... Starbucks for example? If so, then there is a software security issue with the router, you will need to call the ISP for adjust the settings. If you PC doesn't work with wifi at Starbucks then you have a software issue with your laptop. Go to MY Computer, Hardware/Devices and look for any yellow marks. There will probably be one where the wifi is located. (Expand all the devices by clicking on the plus "+ signs. Find the wifi modem, there are many mfrs; Broadcom and Atheros are two ones. Go into the submenus and driver update too and write everything down you find. The most important things are the description, model number, software version and version date. Navigate to the hardware mfrs site and download and install the newest drivers for the wifi modem. Re-boot and try again to establish a connection.

I have just bought a Google Android Tablet 7 inch and we are having trouble connecting WIFI. We've connected a different tablet and my daughters ipod touch with no problems as well as many lap to


True to the above.. also if you have tried to connect several times you may want to delete the saved Wi-Fi connections an start again. Example.. Open Wi-Fi connections and find for network. If you already have it saved, click"forget" then retype your credentials.

I have internet and a modem for it but my sylvania notebook will not connect to it so how can I fix this


Yes, that is a common "Problem" with that unit (I also have one). There is an icon on the desktop called "WiFi" power. It needs to be manually turned on by clicking on it. It's confusing because it says "WiFi Power On". What it really means is "Click here to turn the wifi power on". I hope this helps.

How can you use public access on your desktop and netbook with a netgear router and adapter walmart sales lady said it can be done with just the router and adapter setup everything we needed was in the...


Just having the wireless router without connecting it to cable modem or DSL modem will not allow you to get onto the Internet. The wireless card in your computer/laptop will allow you to get onto the Internet at a free public WiFi hot spot location such as McDonalds, Star Bucks, at the airport.
Also the wireless card in your computer/laptop may allow you to connect into an unsecured wireless router from your neighbors, if their wireless router is within range of your computer/laptop but without their permission to use their Internet, it is considered stealing from your neighbor. They have a set download limit from their Internet Service Provider and by you connecting to their ISP you may cause them to exceed their download limit and they would be charged additional costs for every Mega byte over their limit.
