I have a sony vaio laptop and since joining it to a new network the wireless has stopped working. Everytime you got into the sony vaio wireless device switch utilit and check the 2 wireless tick boxes as soon as you go back in there both unchecked again and I think this is why the wirless isn't working. Its running vista business and if you go into networkand sharing centre thery are no wireIess options in here either. I have updated the wireless utility fron sony vaio and also upate the intel wireless 3945ABG Driver in device manager which show up with no erros.

Please can anyone one help as im getting no where
