Windows 7: Wireless Network repeatedly disconnects

Wireless Network repeatedly disconnects

Hi all,

My Wireless connectivity keep disconnecting; it is a network issue and not an internet issue, as my router is fine and the other computers in our network are working perfectly.

I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 and my network connection was fine prior to this. I had not been able to connect consistently to my Orange Livebox (SSID:Livebox-3630) since installing windows 7.

Once I connect to my wireless network about 30 seconds later it disconnects. The troubleshooter states that my network connection was manually disconnected.

I have since changed my network provider to BT and have a new router and network(SSID:BTHomeHub2-M5ZR). The same error still occurs.

Opening up "Manage Wireless Networks" window, I notice both network SSID's stored:


They appear in this order signifying that LiveBox-3630 has priority over BTHomeHub. The reason for it disconnecting is that Livebox-3630 no longer exists but it disconnects my current connection to try to connect to this higher prioity network.

I have tried changing the settings of both networks to stop Livebox from automaticcally connecting, move down LiveBox to a lower priority and deleted Livebox from the network list.

Unfortunately, after about 30 seconds of changing any settings, Livebox reappears at the top priority, and with automatically connect to this network. Essentially these are the settings I initally had with the Livebox but Windows 7 is not allowing me to change these settings instead overwriting any changes I attempt to make.

Does anyone have any advice on how I can force Windows 7 to reset any stored networks*?
