I have a Sony VIAO laptop. The computer was recently returned to me after being repaired at the Sony repair center but now I'm unable to connect to my home network. When I try it can't connect. When I diagnose the problem I am told that the connection was cancelled and that "this might be due to timeout or user action." I have no idea what this means. All the other laptops in my home can connect to the network just fine and I used to be able to connect to the network as well. I reset the router but that did not correct the problem. My router is a NetGear RangeMax WPN824 v2. Anyone have any idea what the problem might be or how to correct it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What OS? Is the wireless card installed correctly? Have you checked Device manager for yellow ! ?

Hello, thanks for responding. I have Windows Vista. I do not use a wireless card, the laptop did not need one. I do not know how to check the Device Manager.

Getting to Device manager - Hold down the Windows key and type the Pause/Break key. On your laptop it might just be the Pause key.

Look in the list for yellow !. Specifically under Network adapters. If there are no yellow !, please post what is listed when you click the + beside Network Adapters.

It sounds to me like when they repaired it a driver got messed up.
