Anyone help, somehow cant connect to internet through wireless connection even though wireless switch is on. Have new Sony N21SW laptop, under Device Manager, only LAN Network Adaptor shows, there isnt a wireless adaptor there. Anyone know how I go about reinstalling this and where the files to this would be located. Am running Windows Vista. When trying to troubleshoot wireless conncection, Vista recommends I connect wirelss local area network card - but how?
One minor other query - does anyone know the easiest way to tell how old or new a laptop is ie when it was first turned on?

If there is a Wireless Network Adapter in the laptop but its drivers haven't been installed, it should still be shown in Device Manager, either as a Network Adapter or as an Unknown Device, but with a yellow Question or Exclamation mark against it.

In the absence of any reference, try running the "Add Hardware" from Control Panel. Presumably you have a drivers disk for the laptop?
