Laptop says it's not connected to Network, but it is.

Network says it's not connected, but it is
The Network Connection icon on my laptop has a yellow circle. When I hover over it it says that there are network connections available. When I click on it, the top says Not Connected, but then it shows my network and Connected.

I cannot access my external hardrive that is connected to my wireless router because my laptop says that it's not connected to the network.

I saw other post with similar problems, but none of them helped me resolve my problem.

Without knowing what you've tried, did you unplug the domestic power from your router for a while? Also have you done a full reset of the router and re-install?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I have uninstalled the router and re-install the router. We have 4 laptops and mine is the only one who is having this problem.

Have you been through this lot?:

Also, if you haven't already done so, update your adapter drivers. I'm not necessarilly suggesting they are out of date but sometimes if there is a software glitch updating can fix it.

Did this just recently start happening?

Might be an idea to briefly list what you've tried to save us going over all the old ground again.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I think it has to do with the Network Adapter, but not sure what exactly.

I have 2 Wireless network adapters listed on my device manager.

- Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter
- Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

The Atheros is the only one that is connected to WiFi. Both have the latest Drivers. If i disable the Microsoft Adapter it will suddenly show the network, but then it will go away.

I had been through all the steps on #5. No change or improvement. Drivers are updated.
