Ok so I have seen a lot of threads on forums everywhere about this topic but I find it hard to believe that there is no solution to it anywhere? Anyway last sunday night my internet began to lose connection every few minutes. The next day I was using my laptop and a blue screen of death popped up. When I turned it back on I had lost the connection completely. At first I thought nothing of it as the connection in the apartments in college go down a lot. I soon realised that my itouch could connect. I still wondered if it was something to do with the college apartments but it is the same story now that I am back home. Wireless and Wired do not connect. I have tried many fixes at this stage including system restore and countless other things. Laptop: Sony Vaio VGN-AR88E running Windows 7 Ultimate 32. Have been using it fine for almost a year now and have never had a problem and don't understand where it came from. If you could try be as straight forward as possible with answers as I'am pretty much a noob when it comes to this kind of stuff. Look forward to getting some replies. Thank you. Brian.
