    Hi
    I have just recently purchased an Vaio Laptop (VGN-CR13G) and have been
    experiencing trouble the last month with connecting to wireless networks.
    When i turn on my laptop the wireless signal light turns on and stays on for
    about 5 minutes i can locate the wireless network and then once the light
    turns off automatically i lose the signal.

    About a month or so ago i installed Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security
    PRO 2008 on my laptop as the 90 day free trial of Norton that came with my
    computer finished. Would this be the cause of it? Should i re install the
    internet security or is it a setting on my computer

    I hope that you uninstalled Norton, after the free trial finished!
    It is still runing in the background, if you didn't!

    I'm having the same problem. In my case, the time is loger, about
    30minutes or 1 hour after I start my laptop (TP T61). I'm not using
    Norton.
