(I thought one of the two links was also not from the manufacturer and had "Vista" in the link which makes me think...)


Just to confirm the drivers I listed in the second link are for 2k, xp, or vista...

The original and updated drivers (somewhat updated but not updated as much as the above) can be found here...

As a whole you can download a drivers package which featurs all the factory drivers your laptop came with.

Aitrusskyy, I downloaded the drivers package from the last link in your previous post. It basically gave me a new drivers folder.

Is it just a matter of swapping one folder in for the other of is there more I need to do?

Thanks

inside the folder there should be a few executables.
You'll need to run a setup to install the drivers.
I think (haven't checked) they explain how to install on the Sony site as well.

The only relevant (I think) exe files I see are C:\Drivers\Network\PROUnstl.exe, C:\Drivers\WirelessLAN1\Setup.exe, C:\Drivers\WirelessLAN2\iProInst.exe and Instmsiw.exe, C:\Drivers\ChipSet\Setup.exe

The only instructions from SONY I can find so far is a full system recovery. Should I follow those instructions as it says it will reinstall all drivers?

Look.

You only need the drivers for your connections which are the 2 I listed the first time. They are the most updated drivers and probably the best to use.

That package thing is something you can keep for later on if you happen to whipe your machine, that package contains all the drivers you need and not just the network drivers. BUT those drivers in that package are OLD.


Do these 2 first...


http://downloadmirro...KXP_v13_1_2.exe

http://www.everex.co.../vista/wlan.exe

To see if they fix your issue.


Both of those are self explanatory during install. You don't need a walk through from sony.

PS: If you follow the instructions from sony and do a full system recovery you will lose all information you have on that computer. It is highly unnecessary for just attempting to fixing a network issue.

In case the NEWEST drivers don't work. Revert to your old ones found on this site....

Seeing the fact that those drivers might not be the only ones that died it's best if you just install the complete chipset.

That package thing is something you can keep for later on if you happen to whipe your machine, that package contains all the drivers you need and not just the network drivers. BUT those drivers in that package are OLD.

which is what we were aiming for? To see if that would fix the issue in the first place?
Fixing problem first. Updating to last version second.

Those exe files you found should install the drivers we are looking to install.

Ran the install from the first link and got an error message;

"Error 1719. Windows installer service could not be accessed. Contact your support personnel to verify that it is properly registered and enabled."


Your second link above keeps directing me to this link. http://www.everex.co...cts/gpc/gpc.htm. I cant find anything there regards drivers. Is your link complete?

2rs, Try the old drivers at:
http://support.vaio....p...cons&m=2287

The exe's should install the drivers.

Have just tried the WirelessLAN1\Setup.exe and rebooted but the device manager still showed the adapters having a problem.

Running the chipset Setup.exe at the moment
