Try restarting your router: Unplug it's power cable - - wait 5 secs - - plug it back in.
Then wait for the router to resync with your broadband line and is okay to use.

I had something similar when running a live Linux CD on a Windows computer. What it was doing was remembering the previous Wifi settings. This is what fixed it for me:
Turn off and disconnect power. Remove main battery (if a laptop). Before re-assembling hold the Power Off/On button for at least 20 seconds to discharge the motherboard. Unfortunately I had to do this each time I switched from Linux back to Windows.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I'm on a desktop; Linux recognizes it and connects with no problem. Linux is on its own disk and sees all the others. Windows does not see the Linux disk but I have to start twice for Windows to work after using Linux.

" Linux is on its own disk and sees all the others."
Go into the bios.
In the boot section, make the Windows disk boot first.

Changed the boot order so that Windows boots first; Still sees the Edimax but the edimax does not see the router or network. But now Ubuntu does not have any network - not the wired and not the wireless. Change the order back so ubuntu boots first - still no network.

I have tried all the above answers, including changing the boot order; none have worked.In fact after changing the boot order I had no network connection in Ubuntu at all. Not wireless and not wired. And Windoews connected to the wired connection but the Edimax (which Windows says is working is disconnected and still finds no network I have made sure the program has been approved by my firewall. Nothing works. Meanwhile I changed the boot order back so that Ubuntu brdiges automnatically wy wired and wireless connection.
