Re: Wireless Switch set to ON but its green light is OFF so WiFi not working

Hi Annie13,

 

We're sorry for this experience. What is the current operating system of your notebook?

 

Please reinstall all the Wireless and Wireless LAN drivers from your VPCEC25FD - Drivers and Softwares page. You may also try to uninstall the Marvell wireless driver under network adapter in the Device Manager. Restart the computer to reinstall this driver automatically.

 

Hope this helps.

~Yuri

VGN-NR385E

 

Not sure if it was necessary, but I opened the case and disconnected/reconnected the wireless adapter.  After that, at least the device showed up in device manager (which it hadn't done before).

 

Then, the wireless switch still looked like it was off (no light and icon was crossed out), but Yuri's suggestion fixed it.

Going to download and install Vaio drivers now so that it doesn't happen again...

Re: Wireless Switch set to ON but its green light is OFF so WiFi not working

Hi Sailesh,

 

Welcome to Sony Community!

 

We're sorry to hear about the issue. Was it working before while on Window 10 operating system? There is no latest driver that will support your current operating system and this might be the reason why the WIFI stopped working. 

 

For further assistance regarding your concern, please contact the Sony offices/Sony representative offices nearest to your place of residence in Asia Pacific region http://www.sony-asia.com/countryselector.html?hpid=countryselector:AsiaPacific. Due to proximity, they are in a better position to respond to your questions or concerns.
 
Regards,
Jen
