Hello, I have a sony vaio laptop and need to disable the wireless lan. Can I do this in the Bios? If so, can you provide instructions?
Thanx, Cindy

I think it would be alot easier to just use the built-in wireless utility. Any reason you're trying to do this using BIOS? ;)

In that case, I think you should use a parental-control program, so that you can use the wireless when you need it.

If you really insist on BIOS disabling, here's a general walkthrough: (all BIOSs are different, so I won't know how yours will be like)
1. Hit the DELETE key, or F1. Your laptop may say which to key to hit "to enter setup"
2. Go through the menus, and find something like "network", or "LAN".
3. Disable, go back to the main menu, save to the CMOS, and the computer will reboot.

But I don't recommend this.
