Hello,
I am using my son's laptop and all of a sudden the wireless connection has stopped working. I am currently using my smart phone as a wireless connector[LOCAL AREA CONNECTION 3]which is the only way I can post. I need help every time I try to connect to my complex's free wifi [they are using cox and since I pay an ungodly amount of rent I'm using it!] it connects, but never all the way through then when I click on diagnose & repair it says I have a DNS config problem. So I go to cmd, do all of that stuff, and still, nothing. In the interest of harmonious family living [teen son with a 'tude isnt cool] please help before I have to tell him that somehow momma messed his lap top up :)
running vista on a sony vaio with LAN-Express AS IEEE 802.11g PCI-E Adapter,

I am not completely computer illiterate, but this one is beyond my realm of expertise.

Hi Boss, as I understand it you can't connect to the wireless. Please perform the following for me:

Check Device Manager
  • Select Start
  • In the Start Search field type devmgmt.msc and push Enter
  • Expand the Network Adapters group

Do you see a wireless adapter there? Does it have a red X? If you don't see it there do you have a Unknown or Other Devices group (Would have items with a yellow exclamation point in front of them)? What's in there if anything?

Do you have any other machines connecting to this wireless network that are working? Can you connect to any other wireless network on this laptop?

The device appears to be enabled and functioning, lets see if we can conclude if the problem is on your computer or on their access point.
