Windows 7: Wireless Problem

Wireless Problem


I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FW11E and according to Sony, i was not eligible for the support on the integration from Vista to Windows 7. However, i still installed Windows 7 64-bit Professional and i initially had a few driver problems such as my touchpad not working, the volume control on my laptop not working, the brightness key functions not working but i managed to fix all of these problems.

Now i have a internet problem. Basically sometimes it works perfectly sometimes i get a little yellow exclamation mark on my wireless internet icon in the bottom right corner and my internet stops working. It's definitely not a router problem because my PC works perfectly fine. Also when i take my laptop to university and access their WiFi, i have the same problem again. It works for a little while and then suddenly i get a exclamation mark on the WiFi icon and the internet stops working. Restarting my laptop does not fix the problem.

I have a feeling it's definitely to do with me integrating to windows 7. But i don't know how to fix the problem.

Any suggestions would be grateful, especially when i need to do my dissertation lol.
