Re: [New Sony Vaio Pro] Wifi Issue!

I surrendered a long time ago already :smileysad:. However, that doesn't mean I hate using my Vaio Pro non-touch! When the disconnection issue was resolved for me at least, I started to fully enjoy my Vaio Pro after that and even forgot about WiFi at all, which is really good when I'm at least not too far from the router. I guess I memorized the range where I can use the Vaio Pro without the slow WiFi. Unlike some of those who unfortunately have some issues other than WiFi, mine was still working in excellent condition. It might be due to me doing a clean install Windows 7 though I lose a lot of Vaio exclusive perks. For me, hardware beauty and bloatware free OS are the foremost requirements for a great laptop. I still visit this thread occasionally.

Re: [New Sony Vaio Pro] Wifi Issue!

I have had problems consantly for about one month now, i have started to ask the hotel staffs to try to get me rooms close to the router always, and right now im in Panama city airport and while everyone else can just connect to the free wifi in this airport i had to pay 50USD to the business longe access so i can sit 3-5 meter away from their router....amazingly nice to have Sony! i am getting home tomorrow and will visit the Sony place Monday, and have them either take back the laptop, or give me anotherone, which shall work as all other normal laptops, or they have to refund 100% -- and thats really cheap, i have stuggled crazy much about this issue

Re: [New Sony Vaio Pro] Wifi Issue!

Wanna buy a Sony Vaio Pro 11. It is perfect for me.

 

Please Sony, you have to solve urgently this annoying wi-fi HARDWARE issue on future produced items.

 

URGENTLY. This is what a serious company would make.

 

Otherwise, next month I will buy a Toshiba or a Samsung ultrabook.

Sony will soon release 2014 Vaio Pros with updated WiFi (802.11ac from what I saw on the articles, most probably Intel 7260AC) but I don't know yet if they did some antenna redesign (maybe put them to the screen bezel instead of next to system board). It seems like they're just gonna abandon the current Pro WiFi range issue after they release the newer Vaio Pros. Well, I would be happy if they can give us an exchange to newer model for 10% of price of the newer model and get new 1 year warranty as a bonus. See the news article here: http://www.theverge.com/2014/1/6/5275804/sony-refreshes-vaio-line-adding-11-inch-flip-model-and-fast...

Re: [New Sony Vaio Pro] Wifi Issue!

Haran,

 

The SVP11 indeed has the wi-fi problem. I'm now using a nano Wi-fi USB adapter and it is now working well. Since it is really small, I don't even notice it. Still, I lost one USB slot, but I don't really care. I like my SVP11 a lot (: 

If you think you can't deal with the fact of having to use an adapter, then go for a MacBookAir 11 or another brand ultrabook. If you are waiting Sony to make a move, you'll wait forever, as it seems.
