My connection was upgraded from 6 Mbits to 16 Mbits this morning and everything was working properly, but the joy was only short-lived as all of a sudden the laptop is unable to connect.
I have a Desktop (with Vista on it) connected over LAN and a laptop (with Windows 7 on it) that connects over wireless to the FritzBox 7170 Router. The router itself is showing the connection coming in at 17691 kbits and an upstream of 1183 kbits and Vista is working with no issues. The router however, is showing only 3 grayed out neighborhood connections, but is not showing itself. When I connect the laptop directly over the LAN cable to the router it has no problems establishing the connection.
The troubleshooter on Windows 7 on the laptop is showing "Problem with wireless adapter or access point" and "A network cable is not properly plugged in or it may be broken" as "detected" which is bogus, since both these conditions are ruled out as in that case it would not even connect directly.
So what is possibly wrong? Any solution would be really appreciated.
