I'm having trouble connecting with my dlink wireless adapter. It has worked in the past few days (only had it a week) but today it wont work. I can connect fine if I move the pc to the other room and hardwire into the router.
When I click diagnose and repair, I am told Network Diagnostics cannot run because Diagnostic Policy Service is not started. Click to go to services and manually start it. Once started, you can run Network Diagnostics.
When I run Services, as an administrator, from an admin account, I see DGP is set to Automatic, but not started. I try to start and get = The Diagnostic Policy Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs.
I don't know a way to fix the connection without just clicking 'diagnose and repair'. This wont run without DGP being started, DGP wont start for reasons Allah only knows.
I uninstalled and then reinstalled the driver for the adapter but it makes no difference. It sees the adapter. It shows a strong connection with it. It does not allow me to connect to the network though.
I've tried a system restore to 3 days ago, no good. Mr. Google has a few results like mine with no solutions. Thanks a lot, once again
