Good day, if your using a laptop you can do this steps to enable your wireless

2. Make sure that the laptop has a wireless network adapter
>Go to Start and click on Control Panel
>
Click on Hardware and Sound in Control Panel window. Note: If your Control Panel is in Classic View, you can just double click the Device Manager.
>In Hardware and Sound window, click on Device Manager to open it.
>The Device Manager will appear, then locate and expand Network adapters and right click
the network or wireless adapter you want to check, finally click on Properties
>
The network or wireless adapter properties window will appear, your driver is working well if it
shows This device is working properly under General tab.
3. If your device does not work well, click on Driver tab to check driver details, update driver, disable
driver or uninstall driver.

For you desktop it should be the same.

4. Next is to connect to any available wireless network on your location to check if you can connect
wirelessly.

Reminders: if you don't see any adapter it's either you dont have it ( specially for desktops ) or you need to have the driver reinstalled for it to work.

Hope this help you in your problem on how to enable wireless for your computer. Have a great day and God bless

Enable wireless capability


Certain models of Acer desktop computers are designed with wireless capabilities.
These capabilities can be added to an Acer desktop system that does not connect wirelessly with either an internal or external wireless card, depending on the computer's configuration.
When the wireless connection is not working properly, you can troubleshoot the issue yourself.
The troubleshooting process eliminates the problems that may be preventing the Acer desktop computer from connecting wirelessly.

Check to see if any other computers at the same location are able to connect wirelessly.
The issue may reside with the wireless router or access point.
Power cycling the router or access point may resolve this issue.
Verify that the wireless adapter is enabled.
Click the "Start" button, then "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center," then "Change Adapter Settings."
If the wireless adapter is disabled, right-click on it and select "Enable."
Connect to the proper wireless network.
The Acer may be attempting to the connect to the wrong wireless network, or it may have lost its connection to the correct network.
Click the wireless network icon in the task bar.
Click the proper wireless network, then click "Connect."
Enter the network password (or WEP key) if prompted.

Is Sony Vaio PCV 6603 wireless enabled to connect to net via router?? If it isn't, is it possible to "upgrade" it to be wireless enabled?


It may be wireless enabled. Even if it isn't, then you may install wireless NIC (network interface card) that will help to retrieve the wireless signals.
