I have a sony vaio laptop. It started not being to detect wireless signals. Ive had this issue before on other laptops so I decided to replace the wireless card. I replaced it on this sony laptop and I still have the same issue. I have tried to reinstall the driver from various sources but I still have the same problems. I even booted into a Live Ubuntu Disk and the wireless still wont enable. The wireless card is detected but it cannot find anything. I was very careful when installing it and I made sure everything was connected and screwed into place. Is there anything I may have missed? Did I simply buy a faulty card or is there something else I should look at? The laptop wireless switch IS set to on.

With wireless radio button ON, try launching smartwi utility on search programs and files box by clicking the start button.
