So I upgraded my wife's Sony VAIO E-Series SVE15134CXP laptop with an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6235 dual band with bluetooth 4.0 wireless card. I'm running into a problem with the Intel Wifi Software telling me that my 'Wifi Hardware Switch' is turned off. The laptop doesn't have a physical wireless switch. I've tried the Fn key + F1-F12 keys. I checked the BIOS for anything special. I checked the Advanced tab under the Intel Advanced-N 6235's drivers for any settings to adjust to get this 'Wireless Switch' to be turned on.
I also checked for any Sony Wireless Network software app that would switch on the hardware, but none was found. I did find some sort of Sony Wireless State component driver, but I don't know how to control this. The driver file associated with this is called SOWS.SYS. I also checked any WIndows 8 OS configuration or service to get this wireless hardware switched on. I tried several different versions of the Intel Wireless PRO 15.0+ drivers.
