Sony :: SZ71WN/C Replacing Internal Wireless 4965AGN

Oct 27, 2009

I think I need to replace my 4965AGN on my SZ71WN/C as my laptop will loose connectivity with my router for no reason. I get the dreaded unidentified error and the only way to resolve the issue is to reboot my laptop. This was happening even before I upgraded to Win7. Even on a vanialla Win7 install, with no antivirus, it happens. You could ask if it's my router (Netgear DG834GT), but another Vaio SZ that I have works fine....

So has anyone changed their WIFI module and if so, should I upgrade to one which is WIN7 compatiable out of the box?

Dell :: Replacing The Wireless Adapter

Sep 29, 2008

I have a M1530, with the Dell 1505 Wireless N card installed.

To say the least, it is probably the worst card I have ever seen, getting no more than 6Mb/s on internal transfers (basically wireless G speeds) even though connecting at 130Mb/s.

I have a Dlink Extreme N DIR-655 router and it is pretty good, so I know it isn't that.

Looking at PCMIA cards on the internet, I suddenly realized that there is no expansion port on this system (or I am just stupid and can't see it), so I have to go with an internal card.

Is there anything I should be looking for when getting the new card? Are they easy to install?

HP DV6-7014nr :: Stock Internal Wireless Card Is Not Dual-band?

Dec 2, 2014

I am currently using a HP DV6-7014nr with Windows 8.1 installed and all of the stock parts out of the box.  I have noticed that the stock internal wireless card does is not dual-band.  This is a very huge issue with my current situation, in which I cannot take advantage of the possible bandwidth at my regular location nearly as well as if I had a dual-band card installed.  The warranty is already up, so I'm not concerned with voiding the warranty, I just want to know if the card I'm looking at will operate correctly inside the laptop.  I was going to purchase a Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 HMWWB wireless card for my laptop, and I need to know if this card will operate correctly with inside my laptop.

Dell :: Adding External Antenna To Xps M1710 Internal Wireless Card

Mar 23, 2009

This is what I am working with:

Computer rig:
Dell XPS M1710 Review (pics, specs)

Wireless card intel specs:

And I think this is the external antenna I would like to get (would love any suggestions):
5 dBi Magnetic Mount Omni Antenna - Omnidirectional Antennas for 2.4GHz - Antennas - Fleeman, Anderson & Bird, Corp.

The pdf says the wireless card antenna is, "Hirose* U.FL-R-SMT mates with cable connector U.FL-LP-066"

So basically is all I have to do is buy one of these, 4 inches U.FL Pigtail:U.FL to MMCX WiFi 2.4GHz 802.11g - eBay (item 160119011606 end time Apr-09-09 01:58:22 PDT)

Drill a hole in my laptop case and install one of these connected to the first adapter that is connected directly to the card:
MMCX to N-Male, Pigtail 19" 100-Series - CA-MMNMCN19

Now the n-female from the antenna can then connect to the now adapted laptop wireless external antenna?

I am presenting all of this as a question because I think this is what I need to do but I would like to double check with some knowledgeable people first that this can work, is feasible, will bring desired results (increased range) etc.

Dell :: Latitude D630 Intel 4965AGN Installation

Dec 20, 2009

I just received an Intel 4965AGN card i bought from ebay and proceeded to install it in my Latitude D630.

Card was recognized by windows fine and loaded drivers fine, it just doesn't find any networks.

I believe I installed the antennas correctly (1: white, 2: gray, 3: black).

Also the wifi switch on the side doesn't work and the LED is always off even though the Intel diagnostics say that the card's Radio is ON.

Is my card bad or is it just not compatible (BTW: It is toshiba branded.

I'm considering upgrading my wireless card from the Dell Wi-Fi 1505 card (I know it sucks) that's in my M1530 currently.

I'm not sure if it's the drivers or the card itself, but sometimes I won't be able to connect to networks that I know I can connect to. Also, it seems to loses packets from time to time .....

Sony :: An Internal Comparison Of Old CW Vs New

Feb 25, 2010

I decided to do some investigating about the differences between them. What sparked this curiosity was the consistently higher temperatures I got with my new CW. Turns out the cooling design is a little different.

Not the best pics but hey this science project was done at 3am

New on the left, old on the right:

Old CW:

New CW:

And a pic side by side just for kicks

I think I'll be adding some thermal paste to my new CW. which one? I gotta research how to do all that stuff.

Sony :: Replacing An SZ With?

Oct 26, 2009

I have just upgraded my old Sony Vaio VGN SZ370P to WIN 7 and I am very happy with it.

The computer still performs beautifully. However, I know that as a laptop its end is near (Three years and hundreds of thousands of miles.)

It is already running very hot, though that does not seem to be affecting it at this point.

My question is simple, I have noticed that the SZ line seems to have disappeared. It looks like it has been replaced by the Z line

Sony :: Replacing HDD On Vaio VGN-TZ37

May 9, 2010

I am a frequent traveller who needs a reliable and ultra-portable notebook. I have owned a Sony Vaio VGN-TZ37 for almost 18 months. While I like it very much, it is very slow to boot up (XP). For that reason, I decided to replace the notorious in-built HDD with a SDD.

I have succeeded in replacing the original one with a Photofast G-Monster 1.8 ZIF SSD V 4 and am very happy with the result. The following is my experience.

When I decided to change to SSD, I did a lot of internet search and finally took 3 key decisions:
(1)Which SDD? After a lot of search, I settled for G-Monster 1.8 ZIF SSD V 4. It is not the least expensive, but I am happy with the results.

(2)DIY? A few repair shops could provide the service but they could not assure compatibility or system installation.

I decided to do it myself which is a good decision because I had to re-open the case 3 times.
(3)Secret of opening the case There are a few weblinks offer pictures and tips on the internet. They are essential for non-technical people like me .....

Sony :: Replacing CPU Cooling Paste

Apr 9, 2009

I have just disasembled and cleaned, (to the best of my abilty), my SONY SZ2XP comp using compressed gas. Hopefully,

it will yield some results getting rid of all the dust, although i did feel like i could have done better if i managed to disassemble it further to reach all affected areas.

I'll continue to my question though, I unscrewed the heatsink and noticed that the thermal paste on the cpu looked really misapplied.

It has some big lumps of paste and seems very unevenly applied. I have owned this computer for about 2 years or so, and i have never disassembled it until now

Sony :: Replacing Hard Drive On A Vaio FW

Jan 30, 2009

I'm about to pull the trigger on a FW, but it has a 320GB 4200rpm. HD.

I've planned on buying a WD Scorpio Black later and the replacing it.

How complicated would that be? What I mean is, that I can do the hardware replacing and all that, but is it enough that I would do a recovery disc with the original HD inside and then replace the HD's and then just boot from the disc. Or do I need to fiddle around with the SATA drivers,

Sony :: FW190- Internal WiFi Card Died … Did It

Jul 6, 2009

Vaio FW190 (purchased November 2008)
X-Brite HiColor Screen (1600x900)
320GB Scorpio Black 7200rpm HD
Windows XP
Clean of viruses and bugs.

I have a FW190, my internet works fine when plugged in, but nothing when wireless. When I hover over the Intel PROSet Wireless Utility, it says, No supported WiFi adapters available in the system.

Yes, the wireless switch is on but the on light does not go on. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Intel PROSet Wireless Utility, and installed the newest update on the Sony drivers site.

I have disabled and repaired the wireless connection. I have deleted the wireless card from my system and rebooted forcing Windows to find and install it again. I have done everything I can think of except reinstalling Windows...........

Sony :: Stopping Wireless Static In SZ Series (after Upgraded Wireless)

Mar 20, 2010

if you have an older SZ and want to add a 3rd wire, this will show you how and where to put it.

So a while back I upgraded the the 4965AGN in my SZ750N to an Intel 5200, since that day, B&G has been noisy. I managed to arrange the antenna connections in such a way as to minimize it to within tolerable limits. I also talked to some experts and they said it wasn't going to hurt anything if there was a bit of static so I left it.

I have known for a while that is was the white antenna lead that was causing the static. Unfortunately disconnecting it caused a drop in signal. While working on my Windows 7 guide I had a problem and had to open the laptop. While doing so I noticed the white lead and the antenna it attached to. I hadn't ever really noticed where it sat before. Sony couldn't have hardly chosen a worse place for it.

Sony decided the best place for it, and I assume this is because they merely upgraded the old 2 wire wireless to 3 by adding this, is almost under the power button. Right next to... a speaker. The lead runs along a Speaker wire and puts the antenna right next to it. See pics 1 & 2................

Sony :: Replacing CPU In Vaio SR41 (T6400 -> P8800)

Aug 6, 2009

I'm currently thinking of buying a Sony SR series laptop, but unfortunately here in Sweden we only get two configurations:
Vaio SR49 - P8800, Radeon 3470 256MB
Vaio SR41 - T6400, Radeon 4750 512MB

Since I would like P8800+Radeon 4750, the only possible way seems to get a SR41 and upgrade the cpu. Has anyone here got any experience on upgrading a laptop CPU? More specifically, upgrading from a T-series to a P-series.

I guess they use the same motherboards, so I can't imagine it would be incompatible, but I'm wondering whether it requires any BIOS changes which would be hard to do in a laptop bios.

Sony :: SR Experiencing Wireless

Aug 29, 2009

I'm having issues with my SR420's wireless connection. I'm running Vista (64-bit) and my wireless adapter is the Intel WiFi Link 5100 AGN. My router is a Linksys WRT54G.

The problem: My connection overall is flaky, unless I'm within 20 feet of the router.

The connection drops intermittently, but when I'm able to maintain one, my system reports speeds of 1-2 Mbps.

I'm confident the router isn't the issue because I have two other laptops in the house (both running Vistaone 32-bit, another 64-bit) that have no issues connecting or maintaining a connection.

Both are able to maintain speeds of 54 Mbps (I've run speed tests on all three systems to verify).

Sony :: New Nw Slow Wireless

Jan 24, 2010

I just got a new VGN-NW230 and the wireless seems very slow and has had problems connecting at times. The laptop has an Atheros AR9285 (it's N and the specs say it's 150 Mbps capable) and my router is a Netgear WNDR3700. I've updated the drivers on the Atheros and the router firmware is up-to-date.

The card only reports connecting at 65 Mbps. I have another laptop with an Intel 5100 card and it connects anywhere between 150-300 Mbps. For a "real world" test, I compared the speeds on The Atheros (Sony) is getting at most 1.5 Mbps down, while the laptop with the Intel 5100 gets 17 Mbps down
