What is a network controller?
A network controller is the device used to transfer data in the form of bytes over the Internet. The common terms used for this service is using the modem and surfing the Internet. The network controller device installed on the main board allows the computer and modem to connect to the Internet. There are various companies that manufacture these components. Through these hardware units the actual work is done. It is the medium used for the service that allows the data to travel so we can enjoy talking and sharing information over the global network with our friends and families.
Possible reasons for network controller not working within Sony Vaio® W series
The main reason could be that the driver installed on the system is not compatible with the service. Or the installed version is old that it is in conflict with other components and not working well. The network controller demands two different types of drivers one is the external device on the main board and the other is the main board itself supporting the hardware component. Make sure both of them are present and are the updated versions so that applications work without problems.
The issues can be easily resolved if you use the relevant versions of the driver that can easily be found with the CD/DVD provided with the main board. Once this is installed the service will be active and you can access the Internet. But you have to download the latest versions of these drivers and you can either find them by going to the official site of your operating system or you can go to the official site of the Sony Vaio® W Series. Once you have downloaded the new version, remove the preinstalled version and then run the setup wizard to deploy the new updates.
