I just built a new PC and added a TP-link (TL-WN781ND) adapter, installed the driver for it and the motherboard's ethernet controller.
When I go to the connections list in the system tray, only my network shows, and usually at 1 bar, sometimes at 3, sometimes at 5 (my laptop, sitting right next to it, shows over 10 networks, many at 3 bars, with mine usually at 3). When I connect to it, it stays at identifying forever. Sometimes, I will be connected but it will not show the name of the network but "Unidentified network," and display "No internet access"
I'm fairly confident I've installed the correct drivers. Ipconfig /all shows this:
EDIT: Moving the PC into the same room as the router fixes it. So I guess it is a problem with signal strength. So this I guess this is a different problem.
My laptop has a MUCH better signal than my desktop.
What's up with that?
