Wireless not working on VAIO 390N

Postby VitesseUX390 » Sun Dec 18, 2011 08:28

I just did an install of XP onto my 390N and for some strange reason, my wifi card is not working. This is also the same issue on my 280P...My 390N functioned fine while it was running Vista Business for internet access but once I put the XP on there the Network card wont repair itself and it just ceased operation. Also, when I scan for networks I dont get any Networks that pop up in the Intel Wireless App...My wireless card seems to be disabled...I know this is an easy fix...Its something minor but I cant figure out what to change, and Im messing around with the advanced settings and changing stuff I shouldnt be changing. Can someone please help me out?

I ran a test in the Intel Wireless Manual Diagnostics Tool and the Scan test failed, whats wrong with my UX did I break my wireless driver? This doesnt make sense because it worked fine when it was running Vista.

I dont know what I did but I got the networks to pop up but the UX didnt connect to my main home network...I dont know whats going on, Im just trying to get my UX working, I used the most current Intel Wireless Drivers.

very strange indeed, suspect you have a dodgy wireless card maybe? or maybe you are just too far from access points? remember wifi reception on ux is alot less than a standard laptop.

How is that possible? I never had shoddy wireless when the 390n was running Vista...This has to be a minor fix because my 390 just started doing what my 280P is doing...It doesnt make sense, XP like deteriorated my Wireless card....no idea whats going on. But I do know that its something really easy to fix.

if your 280p and 390 both are having wireless issues, then more than likely its the wireless driver or coincidentally ur wireless access point may be dying?

Have you tried either of your ux in an internet cafe?

funny though how you said you suddenly could see wireless access points sometimes.

Im confused and lost...

Postby VitesseUX390 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 18:01

I got both my 280p's loaded with Windows 7 Ultimate and the wireless cards work on the 280's...I fixed the problem 280 by loading 7...The wireless card is not the issue...Its a setting or something I need to check or whatever to fix the wireless...basically its saying that the wireless card is disconnected but when I looked in the device manager, the device is connected, I dont know whats going on...I can see the wireless networks on my 390n but I cant connect for some reason...I am lost and Im pissed off...It took me forever to get XP on there and finally after doing so, the wireless card fails...what kind of shit is that?

hmm, that is annoying, maybe u need to try xp again, this time clean install, and just ry getting the wireless drive going. do exactly the same for both ux or if u are game you can swap out the drives and see if there is a difference between the two ux , ie one wireless working slightly better than the other.

if wireless works correctly in win7 then it is a driver issue.

Driver Issue

Postby VitesseUX390 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 22:04

Im guessing that the driver on XP isnt working because of whatever reason...I know that the XP OS itself is not the issue...Im pretty sure its something minor, I know that someone knows of something that I can check or troubleshoot.

XP Clean Install

Postby VitesseUX390 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 22:07

I did a clean install of XP off a drive, all I did was converted the XP Pro SP3 cd to a USB drive with a utility...XP isnt the issue, Im pretty sure of that, XP went on there perfectly but then again maybe there could have been an error, but now I need to figure out how I can get a free XP install program again...Damn this is bumming me out big time...Im mad, Ive spent the last 3 days geeking out on this ghat damn thing.
