    I'm having WIFI connection issues with a Sony Vaio VGN-FW140E Laptop. After a connection is established it will randomly stop working.

    The network adapter is a Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN using driver version 14.3.0.6

    I have also tested the connection with a Cisco Valet AM10 WIFI USB adapter and received the same results.

    All other devices connected wirelessly are not experiencing any connection problems.


    EDIT: I just noticed that when the Vaio is connected my other laptop starts experiencing the same connection timeouts.

    Ping 10.0.0.2 -t results on the other laptop when the Vaio is connected to wifi

    change the channel on the router to use wireless channel 1 - just in case its interference - unlikely - but you do have another weaker signal also on channel 6 an 8 also overlaps

    can we see an ipconfig /all from the other PC and the Vaio

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ipconfig /all
    If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post results here

    We would like to see the results from ipconfig /all post back the results in a reply here

    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

    In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

    It will export the results to notepad and then automatically open notepad.

    Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results to a reply here
    to do that:
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
    all the text will be highlighted
    Next
    From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy
    Now go back to the forum - reply and then right click in the reply box and paste

    Just a update for anyone who might find this post with similar problems.

    I was able to solve my connection problem by disabling the "VAIO Media plus Device Searcher" Service.

    To do so:
    Click on Start > Type "services" into the search filed > Double click on "VAIO Media plus Device Searcher" > Change Startup type to disabled then click on Stop.
