Today, I had some minor problems with the wireless drivers so I uninstalled the wireless drivers. Just after that, I reinstalled them using the ones I already had by default in my machine. Then I did an upgrade of the drivers to the version 188.8.131.52 (using vaio update) and now VAIO smart network won't turn the wireless on. I press the option to turn it on but nothing happens. Anyway, the LED in the laptop is turned on, so the radio seem to have energy.
- I already tried restarting the PC multiple times.
- I already reinstalled the wireless device multiple times.
I keep pressing the option to turn on the wireless in Vaio Smart Network but nothing happens. Only works with bluetooth.
There must be something I'm missing but I don't know what.
After doing what @brock029 asked, I have the following conclusions:
- Before the reinstall, I was being unable to properly connect to wireless networks. It was failing the handshake protocol repeatedly.
- If I uninstall and use only the default drivers, all is the same.
While I don't get answers, I'll try other approaches...
UPDATE: I was being unable to solve it, so I just used the last possible solution I could think of. System restore. It solved that problem but came with some secondary problems. I'll be able to solve them in the next hours, though... Thanks your your help
