Unable to connect to wireless network

Have a brand new pavailion quad cord windows 7 home premium 64bit. i also purchased a usb wireless adapter:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...ss_T15_product

this adapter was working fine for a few hours. the internet connection is cable, the adapter gets about two bars of connectivity, and now when i try to connect to network i get unable to connect to network. i have removed the wirless network, have added it back, entered the security key and nothing. i have a netgear wireless router. not sure what the deal is. i have made sure the power settings on the adapter are off, and this adapter doesnt seem to have the sleep mode option on it. windows 7 also found the drivers automatically. the machine is brand new, other machines/devices on in the house get to the internet just fine.

Hi and welcome

Im assuming you are using Homegroup for networking.

Lets take a look at device manager by typing device manager in search. go to the wif tab and look to see if your card listed listed. Is it? does it have a yellow triangle on it?

Are there any "unknown" devices with yellow on them?

Let us know

That sounds like symptoms of Manufacturer & Windows drivers conflicting. Try uninstall the Manufacturer Drivers and let the windows ones do the work, and see how that goes down.

THANKS, that appeared to be the case, i uninstalled the driver that came with the card along with the wireless utility it installed and immediately the machine made a connection. Thanks again for that suggestion it made the difference.
