check these in this order:

has this problem only just occured? have you restarted your pc since it happened?

dont suppose youv tried disabling then reenabling the adapter? to do this go to network and sharing centre and click change adapter settings, then right click the relevant adapter and disable, repeat to reenable

do you have the latest drivers for your network card and wireless adapter?

have you tried a system restore to before the problem started?
