Wireless N and 4 to 5 year old sony vaio's

\015 There does seems to be a problem with the wireless card on older Sony Viao\342\200\231s when near a wireless N network. I know it sounds strange that a wireless N would crash a laptop by just being near it but a lot of people are reporting this problem. It can be solved by replacing the wireless card but has anyone looked into the problem further to see if there is a new driver that solves the issue.\015

Answers :

Wireless problem I bought my new Sony Vaio NS11 2 weeks ago and it starts to have problems. The button who showes if the wirless is on or off doesn't work anymore and I can not use the internet.
