    I just had a quick question. I have a wireless N adapter on my PC and I have never had any trouble. I switched ISP's and they brought out a new router and now my network always says 'identifying', and will only say 'connected' every 5 minutes or so, and will only stay connected for maybe 2 seconds tops. What I find weird is even when the network says it's identifying the internet works just fine, 25ms ping on speedtest. Signal strength is 4 out of 5 bars. I'm not too concerned since everything works just fine, but I was wondering if anyone knows what is up with this new phenomenon. :confused:

    Uninstall network adapter, reinstall adapter.

    Then reinstall drivers

    Reset the ip stack after you do that

    netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt in elevated cmd prompt
