Hey, everyone! This obviously isn't a high-priority issue, but it's starting to get a little disconcerting.

For the past couple of months (since I moved home from school for the summer) the wireless network indicator on my taskbar indicates that I'm not connected to the network. When I hover over the indicator, however, it says that I'm connected with internet access to my home network, as shown here:

Like I said, this isn't a huge issue, as I'm posting this from the above-indicated network. It's obviously something that's broken, though, so I'd like to fix it. Does anyone have insight to this?

Thanks!

- Brennan

Try opening your Device Manager and uninstalling your wireless driver and rebooting.Or if that does not work then hit the start button then control panel then network and sharing then manage wireless networks then find your wireless network and delete it then reboot your machine and re-connect to it.
