I recently moved from Illinois to Iowa and my roommate had our internet reconnected with the same service provider. The router and password are the same as far as I can tell. What puzzles me is that the internet connection is great, but the icon continually says that the wireless router is trying to acquire the network address when there is already a very nice internet connection.
To "fix" this I can repair the wireless network. The problem returns when I restart my computer. I can't hide the icon either, because it comes back if I restart my computer. I use windows xp sp3.
Any ideas what the cause could be?
