It is explained in detail in that page.

I have a sony vaio laptop do i need a wireless card.


Hi,

Almost all laptops being manufactured even 10 years ago has built it wireless card. I believe yours have built in one and no need to buy an external wireless card.

To further verify if you have it installed, you can check in in the Device Manager under Network adapters (if the wireless card driver is installed). To bring this up, follow the steps below.

For Windows XP:
Start -> Run -> devmgmt.msc (Type in the box) -> Expand "Network adapters" (You should see wireless and ethernet adapters listed)

For Windows Vista and 7
Start -> devmgmt.msc (Type in the start search box) -> Expand "Network adapters" (You should see wireless and ethernet adapters listed)

If you want to further check if you really have the wireless card installed, please post the make and model of your laptop.

Hope this helps.

I recently installed a wireless 11n network and my nieghbours sony vaio laptop crashes (I forget the model). Should I suggest to him that he disables the wifi and buys an addon usb wifi connector?


Could be that you need to update the drivers and possibly the firmware
for the router especially if OS is Vista

Intel 2195 or 2200BG wireless adapters can cause this problem update
can solve the problem, I would check your friends to see which adapter is in the machine, link is for Intel

If you try this route create a restore point
Hope this is of some help, let me know if I can help further

Have vaio VGN-S460, window 7. Can't get internet


Windows 7 is still a beta and Sony probably doesn't make drivers yet for the network adapter on that computer. You might be able to install the windows vista or xp drivers and that may work. You might have to manually install these drivers, however.

DRIVERS CAN NOT BE RECOGNIZED


Most Vaio drivers are not included in Windows Vista so you must install them manually. Download those drivers from http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/select-system.pl?DIRECTOR=DRIVER

visit intel website to see if they have drivers for your ethernet card specifically for Vista. If they do, then download and save so that when Vista sees card and says it cannot finf driver you will be able to install afterwards.
