Communicating without an Access Point (Ad-hoc)
An ad-hoc network is a network in which a LAN is created only by the wireless devices themselves, with no other central controller or access point. Each device communicates directly with other devices in the network. You can set up an ad-hoc network easily at home. If the wireless connection is initiated by the VAIO computer, channel 11 will be selected by default. If the wireless connection is initiated by peer wireless LAN equipment, the wireless LAN communication will make use of the channel selected by the peer wireless LAN equipment.
n 64 N
To communicate without an access point (ad-hoc)
! You cannot select the 5 GHz bandwidth, which is used for the IEEE 802.11a standard, on ad-hoc networks.
The IEEE 802.11n draft standard, using the 2.4 or 5 GHz bandwidth, is not available on ad-hoc networks.
Turn on the WIRELESS or WIRELESS LAN switch. The Wireless LAN indicator lights up. Double-click ( / ) on the taskbar to display the Wireless Device Switch window.
Select your desired wireless option(s) and click OK. Click Start and Control Panel. Click View network status and tasks under Network and Internet. Click Set up a connection or network on the left pane. The Set up a connection or network window appears. Select an option to specify the ad-hoc network settings and click Next. Follow the on-screen instructions.
See the online specifications to see whether your model supports the Bluetooth functionality, the IEEE 802.11a/b/g standard, and/or the IEEE 802.11n draft standard.
n 65 N
Communicating with an Access Point (Infrastructure)
An infrastructure network is a network that extends an existing wired local network to wireless devices by providing an access point (not supplied), for example the Sony Access Point. The access point bridges the wireless and wired LAN and acts as a central controller for the wireless LAN. The access point coordinates transmission and reception from multiple wireless devices within a specific range. The access point will select which channel to use on an infrastructure network.
! For details on how to select the channel that will be used by the access point, see the manual that came with your access point.
n 66 N
To connect to a wireless network
Make sure an access point is set up. See the manual that came with your access point for more information. Turn on the WIRELESS or WIRELESS LAN switch. The Wireless LAN indicator lights up. Double-click ( / ) on the taskbar to display the Wireless Device Switch window.
Select your desired wireless option(s) and click OK. Right-click or on the taskbar and select Connect to a network.
Select the desired access point and click Connect.
For WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK authentication, you must enter a passphrase. The passphrase is case sensitive and must be between 8 and 63 alphanumeric characters long or up to 64 characters long using numbers from 0 to 9 and letters from A to F. See the online specifications to see whether your model supports the Bluetooth functionality, the IEEE 802.11a/b/g standard, and/or the IEEE 802.11n draft standard.
n 67 N
Stopping Wireless LAN Communication
To stop wireless LAN communication
Turn off the WIRELESS or WIRELESS LAN switch.
! Turning off the wireless LAN functionality while accessing remote documents, files, or resources may result in data loss.
n 68 N
Using the Bluetooth Functionality
The Bluetooth functionality is available on selected models only. See the online specifications to see whether your model supports the Bluetooth functionality.

You can transfer data between these devices without cables and up to 33 feet (10 meters) range in open space.
To start Bluetooth communications
Turn on the WIRELESS switch. Double-click Click OK. ( / ) on the taskbar to display the Wireless Device Switch window.
Select the Enable Bluetooth Device option.
n 69 N
Notes on using the Bluetooth functionality
The data transfer rate varies, depending on the following conditions: Obstacles, such as walls, located between devices Distance between devices Material used in walls Proximity to microwaves and cordless telephones Radio frequency interference and other environmental conditions Device configuration Type of software application Type of operating system Use of both wireless LAN and Bluetooth functionalities at the same time on your computer Size of file being exchanged Note that due to limitations of the Bluetooth standard, large files may occasionally be corrupted during continuous transfer due to electromagnetic interference in the environment. All Bluetooth devices must be certified to make sure that the applicable standard requirements are maintained. Even if standards are met, individual device performance, specifications, and operation procedures can vary. Data exchange may not be possible in all situations. As general characteristics of Bluetooth technology, video and audio may go out of synchronization if you play videos on your computer with audio output from the connected Bluetooth device.

Then install the battery pack to the computer again. For details, see Installing the Battery Pack (page 23). If the issue persists after performing the above, it means the installed battery pack is not compatible. Remove the battery pack and contact an authorized Sony Service Center. To find the nearest center or agent, see Sony Support Information (page 174).
n 132 N
What should I do if a message window, notifying of incompatibility or improper installation of the battery pack, appears and my computer enters Hibernate mode?
Why does the System Properties window display a slower CPU speed than the maximum?
This is normal. Because your computer's CPU utilizes a type of CPU speed controlling technology for power conservation purposes, System Properties may display the CPU's current speed instead of the maximum speed.
What should I do if Windows does not start, showing a message, when I start my computer?
If you enter a wrong power-on password three times consecutively, the Enter Onetime Password message appears. If you enter a wrong power-on password three times consecutively again, the System Disabled message appears and Windows will not start. Press and hold the power button for more than four seconds to check that the power indicator goes off. Wait for 10 or 15 seconds, then restart your computer and enter the correct password.

Why is my modem connection slow?
Your computer is equipped with a V.92/ V.90 compatible modem. Many factors may influence modem connection speed, including telephone line noise or compatibility with telephone equipment, such as fax machines or other modems. If you think your modem is not connecting properly to other PC-based modems, fax machines, or your Internet Service Provider (ISP), do any of the following: Ask your telephone company to verify your telephone line is free of any line noise. If your problem is fax-related, make sure there are no problems with the fax machine you are calling and that it is compatible with fax modems. If you are having a problem connecting with your ISP, make sure the ISP is not experiencing technical problems. If you have a second telephone line, try connecting the modem to that line.
