Hello,
I have a Sony VAIO model SVE15113EN with a preinstalled windows 7 home basic. I have recently done a clean install with windows 8 pro. After the installation WIFI was not working and also Wireless lan indicator light was on even wifi was off. therefore i installed Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless network adaptor from Sony website.
Actually there is not any Atheros Wireless lan driver for windows 8pro. therefore i have installed this driver for windows 7 os which was preiviously installed . i had cheaked it previously that it is compatible with windows 8.
After installing this i was unable to switch on the wifi . for solving this issue i shut down my vaio and reinsert the bettery and... its working ... Fine..
But wireless indicator light is always on even switching off the wifi....
and the second...
An unknown device in device manager which windows is unable to find...
Any solution....

You Know, I wish people would get it through there head, that when a new Os is brought out that not all drivers for devices are made by MS.
Or the latest ones are provided by the laptop manufacturer.
Here this is the X64 version for windows 8, you will have to manually install the driver to get the wi-fi adapter to work if you have the x64 version of windows 8.

Hi DeepakKumar01,
I have sony vaio SVE15116ENB and me too is having the same problem. My wireless LED remains on irrespective of the WIFI/Bluetooth State.
You said you solved your issue. Can you please guide me to resolve my problem.

@ohmniox you need to install sony wireless state device driver. Go to the sony product support page and choose your vaio model and download the Sony Wireless State Device Driver, Thats it.
