Having problems with your Sony VAIO VGN-N220E/W Notebook ?

Wifi dropping out constantly

\015 The wifi connection connection on my Vaio constantly drops out. This happens every 10-45min and immediately comes back online about 30 seconds later. I have used it with multiple access points with varying degrees of signal strength and have had the same problems. I have Vista factory installed on my computer and have had this problem since day one. One of my co-workers got the same computer at the same time as mine and his has the same problem. When I connect the computer to a wired network I don't have the problem.\015

Answers :

The problem appears to be a faulty/cheap ON/OFF micro switch (on right side of laptop). I solved my problem by setting switch not all the way to ON position and it stays ON unless I "bump" or touch the switch (usually by mistake).
Make sure that the firmware of your router is up to date. and always check your computer updates.
