Cannot make the wireless connection
At times, you may find that you cannot make the wireless connection.

This kind of wireless problem in Sony VAIO X Series laptop can be solved by removing connection to the wireless router and then joining it again. If this does not help, then you can try by disabling your Windows® Firewall and any such software on your system. This may be because your Windows® Firewall was preventing wireless connection to be made. Once you have connected to the wireless connection, you can move on to the Firewall configuration settings and change them to allow making the wireless connection.
Wireless card gets disabled
Sometimes, when you switch on your laptop and try to make the wireless connection, your wireless card starts behaving as if it has been disabled. When you click on the small icon to see the list of Wi-Fi networks, you see that the list is empty. In such a situation, you should first of all disable and then again enable the Wi-Fi network card. Sometimes, restarting the laptop also helps. If none of this works, then the final solution can be to uninstall the network card from your Windows® 7 and then reinstall it to make it usable.
One common wireless problem in laptop is that it fails to detect the wireless card at all. In such a case, you will have to uninstall the network card, reinstall it and check if the laptop detects it. Go to your ‘Device Manager’ right click on it and select ‘Scan for hardware changes’. Most probably, the Windows® 7 will be able to detect the card that you just reinstalled it.
