First;I think you need to use W7 to configure your connection with the router.
But try :
Use the PING command to test the communication between the computer and the gateway.

Goto Start > Run and enter COMMAND.
From the Command Prompt, enter PING 192.168.0.1.
The gateway should reply.

Verify that the residential gateway is getting power. With the broadband modem connected to the WAN port on the gateway, you should have a soild WAN link light. You should use the same cable that connected the modem to the PC to connect the modem to the WAN port on the gateway. Any port on the gateway that has a computer connected to it should have the corresponding LAN link light lit. If you do not get the appropriate link lights, try using different cables.

Minimum System Requirements• Cable or DSL Modem
• Computer with:
• Windows® Vista*, Windows® XP SP2*, or Windows® 2000 SP4*, or Mac OS® X (v10.4)**
• Internet Explorer v6 or Mozilla Firefox v1.5
• CD-ROM Drive
• Network Interface Card
• For Internet Access:
• Cable or DSL Modem
• Subscription with an Internet Service Provider (ISP)

It's a common problem when a OS upgrade is done. Open the Device Manager, how many "Unknown Devices" are listed? In Device Manager under Network Adapters is the Wireless device listed? Try here for the Win 8 Pro 64bit drivers: http://www.sony.co.in/support/product/sve14112en/download

How can i interface with an ssd drive after removing it from a sony vaio vpcz1


Well- depending on the age of the hard drive it is either an IDE/EIDE or S-ATA or they also have firewire and USB.

Go to Amazon or Google USB to IDE/SATA converter cable.

This is a kit that has a power supply and different connector types. So--if you get your drive from your laptop you can connect it with this kit to your desktop computer via usb. It will appear just like C: in my computer and will act like an external hard drive.

I hope this Helps!

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.

Acer 6930 wireless adapter failure conflict


Most Acers use a form of Intel IPN2220 Wireless card. If yours does, you use XP and your router is using WPA or WPA2 (TKIP or AES) security then you'll need to update the driver by searching for it manually using the Custom button (Hardware) in Windows update (instead of Express). This driver is not part of XP service pack 2 or 3. Like me you've fallen foul of thinking that keeping your computer up to date using Automated Windows Update will keep everything in good order when in fact it can generate more problems than it solves

Wireless card not recoqnised


You can purchase a wireless adapter that plugs into the Expres card slot for about $40 . These can be purchased at your local computer store . Less expensive than a new motherboard, and they work quite well. As a matter of fact, I have my on-board wireless turned off and I use a Wireless Belkin adapter.
You can see the adapters here, but you should be able to find them locally:

http://www.google.com/products?q=Laptop+Wireless+adapters&hl=en&show=dd

You may have to copy and paste the link into your browser.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Wifi connectivity problem


It's possible that the driver for your wireless adapter is already installed. Check under Device Manager > Network Adapters if there is anything pertaining to your wireless adapter. Make sure that your wireless adapter (under Device manager > Network adapters) does not have any red X or yellow question mark.

Red X indicated that it's disabled , while yellow question mark will suggest that you need to update the driver. If your wireless adapter is working properly under Device Manager > Network adapters then you will need to configure it's utility for wireless connection.

If you are running windows XP, look for the wireless icon in the lower right side of your task bar and use it to connect to your preferred network.

Good luck and have a nice day!
