Windows 7: Wifi is connected but identifying frequently and yellow star on logo

Wifi is connected but identifying frequently and yellow star on logo

Hi,

My connection to the internet is always very good but there are some issues :

1. my wifi is identifying (turning blue circel) for a second or two and that happens frequently. But this identifying has no influence on my connection f.e. when i am downloading something or doing other stuff which demands download-capacity.

2. my wifi icon has always a yellow star or dot

For a good understanding : i have a 5 star signal strenght and in my surrounding there is only 1 wifi network and that is on channel 11 and mine is at channel 1 - so no interfering problem.

So, is there a solution for both the identifying and yellow star problem ?

Any help would be appreciated !

Thanks
Stefan

Have you tried you troubleshooter by right clicking the network icon in notification area and selecting troubleshooting? Do you have the latest driver for your network adapter?

I did and nothing came up as a problem.
I have the latest driver installed and checked.

Where and how did you check for your network adapter? If you could please fill in your system specs in your profile area this will help a great deal in determining what drivers are outdated and needed.

I checked my networkadapter under computeradministration-devices. I checked the Realtek and Atheros for the latest drivers. I have a png of my networkadapter shown. What system specs do you need other then Windows 7 homepremium 64bit? Or how can i fill in the specs in my profile area ?

To fill in your system specs, click on your name in upper right hand corner and look for tab "system specs" and just fill in the blanks. Or you can use the "user cp" option.

I'm looking for PC make and model, mobo make and model.

Have you tried rebooting you modem/router? Unplug it from the AC outlet and let it set for 1 minute and then plug it back in.

what's the exact make and model of your laptop? This is what I've found from hp.

From your cpu-z screen shot, there is a BIOS update available and several wi-fi adapters as well.
