Wireless Network stopped detecting ALL local networks
My Sony Vaio VGN-130G laptop won't detect ANY WiFi ports. It worked great 2 days ago and now it won't detect any wireless networks when the computer was turned back on. Reformated the laptop back to the orignal configuration ....so I know it isn't a software problem. Called Sony tech support and they want $279 plus shipping and taxes to fix. The computer is ONLY 14 months old....just out of warrantee.
Re: Wireless Network stopped detecting ALL local networks
If your computer is running kind of sluggish, you can fix it with an easy clean up of your registry. Here's a link to a free scan that works well: www.your-free-info.com/RegCure
I've used this one and it sped up my computer by quite a bit. Hopefully this helps.

go in the internet [OPEN NETWORK AND SHARING SYSTEM] then go in [CHANGE ADAPTER SETTINGS] then disable the Ethernet and restart your laptop and after restarting go to same settings and enable your Ethernet. hope it works
make sure you turn the wireless switch on. It should be on either side or the front of the laptop.
Did you configure the new router and set the wireless on it?
If your internet provider is a phone company such as AT&T did you configure the router to be PPOE (and set the userid and password) and bridged the modem that goes into the router?
If your internet provider is a cable company did you set the router to be DHCP?
Does the Sony even see the wireless network in the View Available Wireless Networks list?
Did you put the wireless key in correctly?
You didn't by chance happen to hit the FN function key on the lower left portion of the keyboard + the key (F1 thru F12) that toggles the wireless on and off? The correct F1 thru F12 key to hit will have the wireless signal icon )))) or it will have the icon of a tower with the wireless signal )))).
if you are on a wifi zone it must be detected by your laptop if not maybe your network connection setting for detecting wifi is off. try changing the settings of your network connection. and change it to auto detect the network connections
try plugging the wireless mouse receiver into a different usb port reboot your machine is there a key on the keyboard with a little wireless symbol? if so it is probably in blue and there is fn key that you need to hold down while you press the wireless key to turn on the wireless
i think i got it! i had the same problem a few days ago. go to the network and sharing center in vista. then on the left pane, click on the "manage network connections" link. at the bottom should be your wireless connection. right click on it and at the top of the little menu it should say enable. and viola vaio, your little green wlan light should come on and it should connect to your wifi network. :)
