Hello,

Have you turned your wireless adapter on by using the Fn+Function Keytop with the blue icon that looks like a vertical line with two radiating arcs on either side? Try that anyway and you should see an icon or set of icons for activating your wireless and wireless and bluetooth antennas. As these pop up use your keypad arrows or mouse to click on the one you want to activate. You may or may not be prompted to reboot.

And yees, you need to install the wireless adapter drivers for your laptop and probably others like sound and glide pad if the above does not work for you. These devices may work under Windows automatically, but your VAIO probably has better drives that will give you better functionality.

To locate your drivers I need to know the model number itself which is located in one of the areas listed below as indicated by Sony.
For models released Fall 2000 and later The model name can be found on a small label located in one of the following places:
Notebook Computers: (see picture)

  • On the bezel (frame) of the LCD display.
  • On the LCD hinge.
  • At the top left or top right of the keyboard
Regards,
Worldvet

Sony Vaio laptop unable to detect wireless access point


CompuLayne: Hello bluebells953

Netgear is quite tricky as is with all other routers, but I don't think the router is your problem. Try to do the following.

1) Turn off Vaio laptop
2) unplug router
3) unplug modem
4) plug back in modem - wait for it to boot up
5) plug back in router - wait for it to boot up
6) turn back on the Vaio - log in and see if it sees the SID. If it isn't broadcasting, you might have to enter it in manually and select connect to non broadcasting network

DO I have wireless?


Hi, im sure the PCG-K315M dont have a built in wireless card, You can buy a Usb wireless card for about 20-30 pounds from any shop. If your laptop did have wireless onboard there should be a switch on one of the sides of the laptop,

Have a good christmas
