Sony Vaio laptop with Vista can find the wireless network at home, but when you click 'connect' nothing happens. The window with the networks closes but it doesn't ask for a password and doesn't connect.
If you hit 'diagnose' it says your computer is not automatically set to this network.
With other networks around everything seems to be fine, it's asking for a password.
The network itself is working fine. We have other computers (Macs) and phones working on it.
Which utility is in charge of your wireless networking - Sony's or Windows own? If the former, change to Windows by closing the Sony Service and enabling Microsoft's own.
I am having the same problem and i am using windows utility. I just replaced my router but all the other devices in the house connect just fine. I can connect to the router via an ethernet net cord. I have also tried a usb wireless adapter without success. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the wireless card as well as updating the drivers for both the usb adapter and the wireless card without success. Prior to replacing my old Belkin wireless router I had no problems connecting this laptop. I have also tried rolling back the system to an earlier restore point.
Gateway NV53A with AMD Penom II N830 Triple-Cord with 4 GB of RAM, Windows 7 64bit, Atheros AR5B97 b/g/n.
I have a Netgear N600 WNDR3700v3
Again when trying to connect to a network after clicking connect nothing happens regardless of the type of security and wont even connect to a non secured network with either the usb wireless adapter or wireless card. I know that the usb adapter works as I use it on my desktop computer.
All help or suggestions appreciated as this is driving me crazy.
