The system tray says the wifi is not connected, but in the connections list, it shows it is connected to our wifi.  The internet works as far as i can tell.


Ive ran a couple different antivirus scans, a registry cleaner, and have uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers and nothing works.


Any ideas?

Just as a note, the use of registry cleaners is strongly not advised by anybody on BC.


Since the connections list shows it as connected and your internet connection is working I would put it down as just 'one of those things' and stop worrying about it. At the end of the day what matters is that you can and do connect, not what various indicators show. You have taken all reasonable steps - with the exception of the registry cleaner - and everything apart from the indicator shows the system is working.

I am going to be away until about the 22nd October. Time on-line will be reduced and my internet access may be limited. PMs may not be replied to as quickly as normal !
