Bought my wife a Sony Vaio VGN-NW220f for Christmas and it's wireless IF has had a series of problems, some probably caused by me trying to learn / network System 7 to existing peer-to-peer network that includes XP pro and XP64bit workstations. I also replaced/upgraded my ancient wireless router to a new Linksys/CISCO WRT-320N wireless router ("N" wireless with 4port gigabit switch...). My current status is:
1. Upgraded firmware in router to latest version (v103).
2. Upgraded latest Sony wireless driver
3. Wireless will connect to lan, but will NOT connect to internet (7 mumbles something about not being able to find the DNS server).
4. Firewall is turned off.
5. All bloatware I can find has been removed, including Sony's wireless connect sw.
It's been quite a while since I had to wade thought LMHOSTS and ROUTE tables but is sure looks like a software prob to be. BTW, I have an old XP box with an ancient "B" wireless card in it and it connected perfectly. I have also experimented with installing and uninstalling IP6, which has been the source of similar probs in a mixed Vista / XP environments to no avail... Help! (PS, thanks in advance for any words of wisdom)
