Having problems with your Sony PC Laptops ?

Every time I connect to an older netgear router with my brand new Sony Vaio laptop (downgraded to XP) the router ''crashes'' and denies service to any other device in the house. I have already added the Intel wireless manager, and turned off the default ''N'' selection for wireless performance ---Thanks!!


Answers :

I have a similar problem with my laptop which also has an Intel wireless card. The only way I can get a stable connection to my Linksys router is by disabling the Intel utility and letting Windows manage the wireless connections. Open up the Intel utility and press the Fn10 key to disable the Intel utility or from the menu select Advanced and than select disable Wifi Control. You will find you wireless connections to be stabler and faster when you do this, you should also check to see if there is a driver update on Sony or Intel's site for your wireless card. I have had my laptop for three months and there have been four updates so far. Face it, Intel makes crappy network adapters and should stick to processors.
