1. You need to sign up with an Internet service provider.
2. Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the DSL or cable modem
3. You need a DSL or cable modem and connect and configure the modem to inaccordance with your Internet service provider's instructions.
4. Install Internet Explorer if it has not been done.
5. If everything has been done correctly, when you open Internet Explorer youcan access the Internet. If you have a wireless router and it is connected to the DSLor cable modem then -
To connect to yourwireless router, the router needs its wireless settings to be configuredwith the SSID, encryption key etc., also the wireless cards in all thelaptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings.Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.

My SOny Vaio VGN-N160G wireless not working


Follow the procedure below to troubleshoot wireless connection issues, including dropped connections, failed connections or low signal strength.
NOTE: Because each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue, try connecting to the wireless network and view Web sites using the Internet Explorer after completing each step.
  1. Verify the physical wireless switch is turned on. Refer to the user's manual for instructions.
  2. Turn on the WLAN adapter using the Wireless Device Switch utility.
  3. Restart the Wireless Zero Configuration service.
  4. Reinstall the original wireless adapter driver.Uninstall the driver from device manager and reinstall it from the VAIO Recovery software. IMPORTANT: If model-specific information is required to use the VAIO Recovery software, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product. Manuals are available online through the Manuals/Specs/Warranty link on this page.
  5. If available, download and install a wireless adapter driver update from the Drivers & Software link on this page.
  6. If possible, test another computer on the wireless network. NOTE: If another computer is unsuccessful, contact the wireless router manufacturer or ISP to verify they are working properly.
  7. Remove the network bridge if one exists and then restart the computer.
  8. Boot the computer into safe mode and test the wireless connection in the Internet Explorer browser. NOTE: If the connection works in safe mode, the issue is likely caused by anti-virus or anti-spyware software. Configure the software properly per the manufacturer's instructions.
    WARNING: If anti-virus or anti-spyware software has been removed or disabled to troubleshoot the issue, Sony recommends enabling or reinstalling it to prevent exposure to malicious software. Once the software is enabled or reinstalled, configure it properly per the manufacturer's instructions to allow the Internet or network connection to work correctly.
  9. Check the WAN IP address of the router as per the manufacturer's instructions. NOTE: If the router is not getting a WAN IP address, the issue is likely caused by a problem with ISP.
    WARNING: There is a risk of data loss. If a router has been specifically configured (PPPoe, DSL, MAC address filtering, security, etc.), the settings will be removed by resetting the router and it will have to be reconfigured.
  10. Reset the router and/or modem per the manufacturer's instructions.
  11. If available, install a firmware update for the router and/or modem. Check the manfacturer's Web site for updates and instructions.
