Windows 7: Wireless device is enabled, but not connected

24 Mar 2016   #1

Windows 7 x64
Wireless device is enabled, but not connected

Running MultiPoint Server 2011. I want to make it accept wireless connections, so, I could create a hotspot via 3G and get it back online should the main connection drop in a critical moment. As it happens, I have a TP-WN422G v2 laying around. It seems to take Win7 drivers just fine. Says it's up to date when I try to install Win8 drivers.

I've enabled Wireless LAN Service from Server Manager. The WLAN AutoConfig service is running.

Problem is, the device is enabled, but not connected.

Other devices can use TP-WN422G to connect just fine, so, it's not a router issue. Could be a driver issue, but then would it show TP-WN422G enabled and with full bars?

What steps should I take to resolve this issue?

Also, I'm not married to the TP-WN422G. If someone knows another solution that would serve my purpose, please let me know.
