Question about Sony VAIO VGN-N130G/W Notebook

3 Answers

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.

    Same thing happened to all three computers in my house. Failures were staggered, so it's not the router. Happened just after an MS update.

    my laptop is picking up the wireless connection just fine. Except for when I try to access email, internet, etc...it will not connect. My wireless connections says 'excellent'. I've also used ethernet connection. I've also tested this at both home and work to rule out the router. So, it is not wireless adapter right?? because it is picking up the connection, ...it is not router because I tested more than one...what is it? When I went to firewall settings and clicked on advanced it say my network connection was corrupted. When I diagnose the problem it says there is a problem with my Winsock?? Please help.

Hi, Have you installed the driver for your wireless card since you re-formatted?

Right click on my computer and go to properties, select device manager. all of your hardware will be listed there. are there any yellow question marks? these are devices that need drivers.

Your wifi card will probably be called 'network adapter'. go to the sony vaio website and download the right driver for your wifi card

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:

I've used this one and it sped up my computer by quite a bit. Hopefully this helps.

Wifi not working on my sony vaio vgn-nw270f


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 )))).

I have a Sony VAIO VGN-NR260E here that persistently toggles the wireless off. The wifi switch on the front of the computer is ON but no light appears. There is no wireless on/off shortcut on the keyboard.

No network


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

Wireless button dose not turn on


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. :)
