Windows 7: My laptop does not pick up any wireless networks

Sometimes reseating the card will fix the problem. But that requires the disassembly of the laptop.
The normal method for determining a card is bad is to swap it out.

Well the most direct way would be to swap the card with a known working one, if thats not possible read on.

Check in device manager, under network adapters. Determine the card vendor and check their website for troubleshooting.

Check the Sony Support web site under drivers and downloads for a diagnostic utility for the card.

Try pinging your router and a web address.

Finally, open a command prompt and type ipconfig /all, hit Enter.What does it say for the wireless connection?
