Replace your computer's wireless network adapter
On board network adapters are fine in Sony VAIO series but if you are using a card adapter try getting one which has an external antenna. Wireless network signals must be sent both to and from your system. Sometimes, your router can broadcast strongly enough to reach your system, but your system will be unable to send signals back to your router.
Install a repeater
A repeater will help you to boost wireless signals across greater distances. If your router is weak in getting the signal then you can place this device halfway between the location and the router to increase the signal power.
Whenever Wireless Internet is being used on Sony VAIO W Series it is advisable that the software and router must be checked for compatibility. If the router installed is not of correct specifications and type, wireless Internet connectivity issues will arise.
If the user has modified or changed the operating system, it is advisable to check the compatibility of the Ethernet card in use with the operating system. Sometimes it has been noted that some Ethernet cards are not compatible with certain operating systems that prevent the wireless Internet from functioning properly.
