I am new to Ubuntu and I have problem with wireless connection. I could not find any wireless connection at all. I am now using wired connection. Sony Vaio SZ series, Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 4965 AG or AGN My software details are:
$ iwconfig lo no wireless extensions. eth0 no wireless extensions.
I upgraded the wireless card in my laptop (sony VAIO CW) due to the original Atheros being incurably slow.The new card is an Intel 6300 ultimate n. In Windows 7, after installing the relevant drivers everything worked without a hitch.In my Ubuntu 10.04 installation, however, I have been unable to get it working.Initially I had the compat-wireless modules installed (linux-backports-modules-wireless-generic), as I had done so to try and get the Atheros card working better. I tried removing all of these, and that made the difference that iwconfig now (instead of nothing) listed
Intel wifi link 5100 not found on sony vaio backtrack 4 vmware I use vmware to load backtrack I have a sony vaio with 5100 AGN wifi card installed in it.

I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my new Sony Vaio series S but it does not recognize my wireless card (I think). The button is on, but the light does not turn on, and it does not detect the wireless card. The wireless card, an Intel Centrino Advanced -n 6205, does work in ubuntu and when I run the command: lshw -C network, it appears UNCLAIMED, that I think it means the drivers are not in the Ubuntu libraries. What can I do to make it work? I've been struggling but I cannot make it work.
I have finally got both video drivers working. Is it me or is the quality of the Intel drivers almost better than the nvidia? I will try something with hardware acceleration soon but the 2D (compiz etc) all works really well.
I'm using a Vaio TT, which seems to use an Intel 5100 WiFi chipset, and a Linksys WRT54G2 (firmwares 1.0.1 and 1.0.4), ubuntus 10.10 and 10.04.
Wifi works fine out of the box. However if the other vaio tt in our office (running windows 7) comes online, my laptop stops being able to make new connections. It WILL stay connected to chat servers, and downloads SOMETIMES continue to work. However all new HTTP requests / ssh connections / rdp connections / pings fail. The laptop still appears to be "connected" to the wifi network.
This may also happen after an undetermined amount of time without the extra vaio. It is not solved by reconnecting or rebooting. Once the extra vaio leaves the building, everything works fine again. This problem does not happen at all if I boot into windows.
I used to have an Ubuntu-Windows partition, but (what do you know?) Windows Crashed, and wouldn't boot anymore. So I reinstalled Windows, deleting my Ubuntu partition. Instead of reinstalling Ubuntu afterwards, I decided to give Debian a try. So here I am. I can't find drivers for my wireless network however, and it's quite annoying to have to plug in the Wired Connection with which I am writing this.
My main specs are: Sony Vaio VGN-CS390J Debian 5.04 AMd64
I have a Vaio M13 M1E, and I'm trying the Linux Mint 10 (Julia) DVD, via a bootable USB stick created Universal USB Installer, but the wireless isn't working.On the other hand, trying Ubuntu 10.10 Netbook it works fine - given that Mint is a variant of Ubuntu, I'd have expected it to work the same.I've tried searching, but not found anything relevant, so anyone have suggestions on what to try?
i'd like to extend that ma intel wifi link 5100 is not detected no more after perform upgrade package( upgrade the kernel too ). when im using command 'lshw -C network' , there is appear to be detected, but not on command 'iwconfig' or even 'ifconfig' it just show nothin. also network-manager no longer show that ma wireless is work properly anymore.
the old kernel : 2.6.25-22 ( my wireless detected and usable ) the new kernel : 2.6.25-23 ( my wireless detected and unusable )
I'm currently installing Slackware 13.1 on my old Sony VAIO. It's got a wireless card sticking out the side of it, and I just want to make sure I set it all up correctly. I got to the screen where it's asking: static IP DHCP loopback And I'm not sure which one to pick.
In simple, I have tried everything I can find on this issue, but I am still unable to get it working on my HP DV4 laptop. My laptop has a Intel 5100 wireless card, and it always says that wireless is disabled. Ive tried booting with the wireless switch off, with it on, ive reinstalled the driver and did everything in a post I found here (cant find a link) that basicly had me reinstall the driver from intels site, then reload the network manager, to no prevail. Im running ubuntu 10.4.1 (just installed), and this is really a big issue 4 me.
I'm having trouble with 802.11n as of late in Ubuntu. I know my wife's computer used to connect faster but it seems to not be able to go over 54 Mbit in 10.10 any more either. Laptop is a stock Sony Vaio VPCZ12CGX/x which has an Intel Advanced-N 6200 card.
I can connect to the 2.4Ghz channel or the 5Ghz channel on my wap both are capable of up to 300Mps as per its configuration but neither go over 54Mbit. Both do about 160Mbit from this same location in Windows. Moving closer makes no difference.
I've been trying to install Ubuntu 64bit on Sony Vaio CW and the Screen is 14 inch when I boot from CD it seems to work normal but after i select "Try Ubuntu without installing" or "Install Ubuntu" then the screen goes black like nothing happening but the CD runs for while then stop. Again I reboot to try again this time I press F6 then select "nomodeset" and it boots fine I was happy though, after installation success when I boot again WTF it goes black again and then I reboot and press "E" during the options that showing to select OS then I remove "Quit Splash".
I guess then I add "nomodeset" and control+X to boot, it works fine. So when I log in and of course I activate the Nvidia Graphic Driver then I reboot and WTF again the screen was out sync or something like the the screen didn't show properly. The Application menu normally is on the upper left of the screen but this time it was on the center of screen and the Shut down button came to the left side and i have to move the mouse cursor to the right and then it would appear on the left just like the resolution is to big for the screen.
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-FZ340E. I installed Ubuntu about 6 months ago and had a problem-free time with it. I then got busy with other stuff (house work, etc.) and hadn't worked on Ubuntu for about a month. Now I switch on my Vaio with Ubuntu and I find the screen is just too bright.Since 10.04 was just coming up, I thought this would be fixed when I update. I updated, but the screen is still too bright.
I searched the forum for answers and found only some pretty old threads which were about the Fn key combos (which, obviously, doesn't work), spicctrl, etc.So I followed the instructions here. I did just what Step 1: Checking for Module says, but Terminal just doesn't give any output.
I just got a new Sony laptop running the I7 Q740m Quadcore with 4m ram w/ WIN 7 Home. I want to run Ubuntu in a Virtual machine. I am wondering if Virtual box is a good choice, or what other VM I should use? Also which version of Ubuntu, 10.10 64bit or 32bit? Would an older OS be more stable?
I just installed Ubuntu on my Sony Vaio VPCEB23FM. However, when I tried to watch videos, there was no sound coming out. I went to [URL] and tried out the link in post #5, but that completely got rid of my sound card and I no longer have any version of ALSA.
I am having problems with the brightness control on my sony vaio laptop, at virst when i upgraded the driver for the VGA card the whole screen went blank, I had to port a bin file from windows and write my own EDID file to get it to work (nVidia GT 230M), but I am having problems with the brightness, although ubuntu does read the input from the keys (FN+...), the brightness refuses to change, adding the brightness applet to the taskbar does not work either. I really need to be able to change my brightness because the battery usage is off the charts.
Cant install it or event boot it to try, because when i choose to install or test it the scene goes blank. I had the same problem when I had the older version but solved it whit using the custom eidi or whats is called and changing xorg.conf. But I saw that nvidia had posted the drivers for GeForce gt 330m on its site for 32 and 64 bit Linux drivers so i wanted to try the newest ubuntu. The thing is that i cant event install it or anything, so i cant use the eidi method either.
When I try to install Ubuntu or (having installed using Wubi) boot Ubuntu, I get a blank screen and no activity. This problem has been addressed many times but I haven't been able to get any of the proposed solutions (e.g. nomodeset, i8042.nopnp) to work. Is there another Linux or Unix-like OS that is known to work with this hardware?

i'm trying to install ubuntu on a sony vaio. Unfortunately i cannot boot from a cd on which i have burnt the .iso file of ubuntu. The only way i managed to install ubuntu was by creating a usb bootable stick, but here also that doesn't work so well. My workaround was to use virtual clone drive which is freeware to simulate a cd rom in windows and get the iso file started. By leaving the bootable usb stick in the computer in this way it worked...
So in the end i have grub and can load ubuntu and win xp, but then by trying to format the harddrive i kind of messed things up and had to reinstall windows. Because the DVD drive only reads original cds. So from there i will attemp to reinstall ubuntu again. But how can i get rid of win xp afterwards ? If that CD Rom would only read burnt cds or if it would habe been possible to boot from usb then i wouldn't have this trouble.
I am having a problem with my new laptop Sony VPCEA1S1E. I installed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and since then I cannot hear any sound. I have tried a lot of things before posting in here but nothing seems to work. From changing the module value in the alsa=base.conf file to installing the updated alsa drivers (drivers,utils,base}. I have also checked the alsamixer so that nothing is muted. I am struggling with this problem two days now and it does not look like I am getting somewhere. The various postings I have read so far did not work for my case.

On my Sony Vaio VPCF12M1E I have a small but irritating problem: Since yesterday the numeric pad on my keyboard doesn't work anymore. I can use the numbers at the top, but not on my numpad. This happened out of nowhere when I was just setting up an access point. No idea what I did wrong, cause I only configured a static IP Reboot, and numpad was gone. I tried restarting the laptop, I tried disabling and enabling Numlock over and over again. Nothing works.
