  2. Hi Nirmal,

    I have 1 sony waio tablet laptop with windows 7 installed on it.
    since last week I am not able to access wi-fi network in my office, before it was working fine.
    I tried the diagnostic utility of windows 7, which prompts me that the wi-fi capabilities turned off.
    Although I do not remember that I have done anything so far. but still, can you guide me how do I resolve this issue.
    Many thanks in advance.

    -Makarand.
