Windows 7: Wireless apears to connect, but doesn't

Wireless apears to connect, but doesn't

Hi. This is kinda hard to explain, but i'll try my best. When i'm connected to no wireless networks, i get the normal "Networks Available" icon in my task tray, and i can click on it and select a network. When i do so, it does the normal connecting thing, but then goes back to the networks available icon. Then when i click on it, on the list of networks, it says "Connected" beside the target network. That's about all i have. I'm pretty sure it's not a hardware problem (how would that even happen?) because i'm on linux right now, and it's working. Thanks!

If you can post a screen shot of your ipconfig/all I might be able to help fix this problem.

Bridges aren't the way to go as you found out. Glad you have it working now.
