Windows 7: Network tries to reindentify itself now and then.

Network tries to reindentify itself now and then.

When the computer starts up it connects itself to the router(ZTE 4G router) aoutomaticly, but after i have surfed the web for a while, it tries to indentify itself, meaning you get that little blue circle next to the little screen at the corner. When browsing it does not cause any problems, but if im streaming a video the video will then stop, ill have to refresh the page to make the video start again. And if im playing a game LoL for eg, the game will freeze for about 2 sec then continue again(due to lost connecion to the internet).

I have no virus on my computer, although i had before. I have reset my router, restarted my computer, updated my ethernet driver, checked so that the ipv4 is set on aoutomatic and tried diffrent router chanels. I have had this router for a few months and the problem just started recently.

I would be happy for any assistance.

Windows 7 Ult, Windows 8.1 Pro,

The only problem I see with the ipconfig is that you are showing a few too many tunnel adaptors which can be problematic.

You might try removing them in Device Manager. You can safely remove them all and Windows will make a new one when required.

Hi Walter,

I have started a thread which looked similar to your problem ( except for the yellow dot ). Perhaps it is helpfull even without a solution by now.
Wifi is connected but identifying frequently and yellow star on logo

I cleaned up also those tunnel adapters in dev.mgmt by deleting the hidden networkadapters but nothing helped. Ipv6 disabled everywhere (not in registry).
Blue circle of identifying keeps turning (time to time).
And yes, the identifying problem frequents more often when using the internet...

Thanks for the responds! i have cleared those adapters aswell, dont think it helped but always good to remove stuff you dont use. I have tried most of the things i have read on the forums, but the whole problem seems random, sometime it works without a problem and sometimes it starts indentifying again. But ill keep looking and ill post if i find something of use Thanks again för your time to respond

Network card name reporting incorrectly in wireless network list area
My rig uses a Centrino Advanced-N 6230 wireless mini half-card. It reports the correct name except within the wireless network list. Instead of 6230 it reports 6320. I searched the registry to see if I could find the error, but nothing found. It's only a nuisance, and a minor one at that. ...
