Having problems with your Sony VAIO Notebook ?

My laptop wont connect to any wireless connection at all anymore, but I can plug it in to the ethernet and it works. the wireless switch is turned on and when i try to connect to any connection and it says "connected with limited access". could something be broken?


Answers :

Hello.

For your wireless card problem, be certain that your wireless access is turned on. Often there is a switch (location depending on the model) to to turn wireless off and on.

Then, if still a problem, I'd suggest to go to Device Manager. Right-click your wireless network card and select Update to update the driver.

If still a problem, go back to Device Manager. This time delete the wireless network card, restart your computer and see if the problem resolved.

If still a problem, replace your wireless card.

Hope this helps.
