I take it that your Device Manager lists the WLAN adapter as a 2200gb. Correct?

What do you not fucking get about the OP saying that the specs you listed DO NOT reflect what he actually has? Why do you INSIST on telling him he HAS to have what the spec sheet listed? He has said multiple times what card is in his computer.

DO NOT post in this thread again asking him to confirm what card he has.

There's no way Sony could have accidentally put in an Intel 2200bg card instead of a an Intel 4965 AGN card into the laptop as they are physically different shapes and sizes.

Intel does however package the drivers in the same file so I am wondering if somehow the wrong driver was installed. Unfortunately some Sony's are a little hard to open up just to check which wireless card is installed so that may not be an easy option for verification purposes.

Check the driver version - if it's a 2200bg it's out of date if it's less than around v9.5. If it's a 4965 it should be around 12.4 or 12.5... if it's less than either of these head to:

http://www.Intel.com/support/wireless/detect.htm to automatically update your drivers.

@fuzz I said the same thing. :?

The date of the technical specs brief lists as 2004.

The 2200bg uses MiniPCI type 3B.
The 4965AGN uses PCIe* Mini Card.

I personally cannot find anything relating to 2200bg in the OP's laptop. The closest thing was this thread in which the OP also has the same problem of no N.

Yes, we both stated that the 2 cards use different form factors so 1 will not fit in this laptop (the 2200bg) but then my next few lines suggest a fix that may work if the stuff in that other forum does not work. It also offers an explanation as to why the OP may be experiencing these problems.

Since he never wrote back stating if the problem was fixed or not I thought it would be nice to post some additional troubleshooting ideas which he can try if he comes back.

one thing being forgotten here is that 'N' has only very recently been certified/ratified. Anything a few years ago was pre or draft N. as the specs weren't certain, there was no way ANY mfg'er could be certain that their early products would work properly, if at all, with the 'true' N standard.
Generally all the pre N products would only work optimally w/ pre N products from the same MFG.
Anything else was a bit of a crap shoot. Without the standard being official, you could not even be certain that a driver update would bring the product up to speed.
