Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-N130G/W Notebook ?

Wireless Network stopped detecting ALL local networks

\015 My Sony Vaio VGN-130G laptop won't detect ANY WiFi ports. It worked great 2 days ago and now it won't detect any wireless networks when the computer was turned back on. Reformated the laptop back to the orignal configuration ....so I know it isn't a software problem. Called Sony tech support and they want $279 plus shipping and taxes to fix. The computer is ONLY 14 months old....just out of warrantee.\015

\015\012Your wifi card will probably be called 'network adapter'. go to the sony vaio website and download the right driver for your wifi card
If your computer is running kind of sluggish, you can fix it with an easy clean up of your registry. Here's a link to a free scan that works well:
