    Wireless Network Issues


    Hi!

    I recently bought a new computer (3 months old), and it worked just fine untill yesterday.
    It simply refuses to stay connected to my home network for more than 5 minutes - then it'll disconnect, try to reconnect and stop at 'Identifying..'. It can connect just fine to all other networks, though. I've not touched anything in the settings prior to the issue.
    I've tried to restore my system to before the latest Windows Update (monday), but the issue wasnt solved. Then I restored it to an even earlier Windows Update, 4 weeks ago. Issue is still here.
    I can connect to my home network with all other devices, so I'm sure it's nothing on that part.
    A thing to note: I can connect with a LAN-cable with no problems.
    Also, deleting/shutting down Hamachi doesnt help either.

    Hi Krelle,

    Try uninstalling the device from device manager and then re-install it using the latest driver for your wifi card found here.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I tried installing the latest drivers, but nothing has changed.
    Any other ideas?

    Did you actually uninstall the device first or just re-install the latest drivers? Does the same thing happen in safe-mode with networking by chance?

    I have no idea which driver to uninstall from the manager, I just downloaded the driver & software for Windows 8.

    Regarding the safe-mode, this is what happens:

    & it's stuck there. However, the issue seems to be gone, and I can access the internet while it's stuck connecting.

    In safe-mode, yes. When not in safe-mode, the issue is still there.

    If it doesn't happen in safe-mode, then you know that there is either a virus, or a software application that is causing the issue while Windows is in normal mode.

    Click Start>MSCONFIG>Startup>Disable All. Then click on Services tab and select hide all MS services. Disable everything that's left.

    Now start turning things on one-at a time...or perhaps several at a time if they appear legitimate. You can always post a screen shot if you're not sure.

    Sorry for the late reply, I've been busy with school lately.
    Anyway, I did as you suggested, but the problem still persist.
    However, something new happened yesterday:
    I had one of my friends over, who owns the exact same computer model as I do, and the problem also occured on his computer, which also worked fine on my connection in the past..

    Unfortunately that sounds like a compatibility issue. You may want to try updating the firmware on your router or try changing the security type on the router. For example you cam try changing it from wep to wpa, or to WPA2. Some times you have to downgrade from WPA2 to wpa.
