Sony VAIO PCG-Z1VA not connecting to *some* wireless networks.

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?RGhhbW1hMzI=?=, Jan 15, 2006.

  1. My girlfriends Sony Vaio no longer connects to my open, unencrypted network
    at home. It will connect to some of the neighbors networks, but it just says
    "waiting for network" endlessly, and never authenticates. It seems to be
    having trouble connecting to more and more networks, I have one at work she
    can't connect to either that's got WPA protection and an unbroadcast SSID,
    which I configured a month ago to connect to her computer, but now it
    doesn't.

    We can't seem to figure out what to do. It uses the Intel PRO Wireless LAN
    2100 3B card. I use a Dell 700M and seem to have no problem connecting to my
    network, and so does my Mac Powerbook G4. My router is a Linksys WRT54G with
    the latest firmware installed.

    Any suggestion would be appreciated, she's about to throw it out the window.

  2. I forgot to add that when the computer is connected to my router with an
    ethernet cable, it has no problem. Only through wireless, it endlessly waits
    for network.

  3. I solved the problem. I had turned my network into a "G" only network, and
    her laptop card is "B" only, not "G". Mystery over.
