   Does the Sony have an Aetheros wireless card? If you are using Vista there is a sticky at the top of the forum describing a Windows update to fix the problem.

   If not I would check that the wireless card drivers are up to date. I would also double check the network settings on the laptop, easy enough to miss a channel or encryption mismatch.

Just because the fix doesn't work for you, doesn't mean it won't work for others. I think VM now know that the wireless on the superhub is rubbish, hence them developing the firmware improvements and a bridge mode so you can connect a decent wireless router to it. They probably tested it on a ZX 81 with complete disregard  to the gaming community.

Hi johnharrylloyd,

 

The sticky the posters are referring to can be found at this link.  If you have an atheros card and you're still having issues, you may need to obtain the latest drivers for your card from the manufacturer, you can usually find these by searching for the make of your card plus drivers on google.
