I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NR21J
It is equipped typically enough with built in wireless.
It happened that a while ago, while turning the wireless on via the switch at the front of the computer, that the green indicator light did not come on, and needless to say, i had no connectivity.
I ren a check on the device and all seemed in order - but still no wireless connectivity.
I uninstalled the device, but left the driversin place, then re-booted the laptop.
It found the new hardware and installed automatically, after which, i had my complete wi-fi access again.
On the next boot however, it seemed to have forgotten the wireless adapter all over again.
I did the same trick of uninstalling, rebooting, and lowand behold, computer finds a new wireless card - talk about goldfish memory !
Any of you fine people any idea why my computer may be suddenly turning its back on a long standing and hitherto solid relationship with its network adapter ?
Many thanks as always for your help,
If there really was a god, then why is my ass the perfect height for kicking ???
