I have a Sony Viao laptop with built in wireless and running Vista home premium. On start-up the wireless switches on initially however before start-up is completed the wireless switches off. It has only recently started doing this.

corrupt driver possibly??

could try looking on the sony site for an updated driver if possible

or go into device manager and look under network adapters, right click it then either click update driver,


or uninstall; reboot.

should find a driver for it

Try those suggestions, then try booting into safe mode with networking, and see if it still happens. Could be a naughty program...

Check the Sony wireless software as there may be an option that you can set to enable/disable the wireless on startup.
