PC has a Wireless Network connectivity issue

By Dethklok ·
I've been trying to solve this for a little while so I came here to you experts to try my luck.

I have a D-Link DWA-125 Wireless Network Adapter that I've been using on my desktop for a while but now it suddenly stopped working.. I've used it on other computers and it still works. I've also reset the modem and router but nothing seems to work. It can find the wireless networks and tries to connect but no success.. I try to use the windows troubleshooter but it can't fix it.
I've tried to uninstall and reinstall the drivers but this seems to be an issue within my PC and not the hardware.

I am running Windows 7 32bit.
I don't want to do a reboot on my PC, saving that as a last option.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance

Try reposting this in the 'Q&A' forum. The 'Discussion' forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution. The 'Water Cooler' is for non-technical discussions. You can submit a question to 'Q&A' here:;content

There are TR members who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution. Although there is some overlap between the forums, you'll find more of those members in 'Q&A' than in 'Discussions' or 'Water Cooler'.

Be sure to use the voting buttons to provide your feedback. Voting a '+' does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours. If they have a ready source of reference available, perhaps won't need to repeat questions previously asked and answered. If a post did contain the solution to your problem, you can also close the question by marking the helpful post as "The Answer".

However in the mean time What changes where made to your Desktop just before this stopped working?

Remember that Hot Patches supplied on Microsoft Tuesday are a change.

I'm also supposing that when you say I don't want to do a reboot on my PC, saving that as a last option. Actually means you do not want to reload the system as it should have been shut down to remove the WiFi Card. If you pulled it with the system running it's not going to do the card or the computer much good.

Here I would say that there is a Security Issue involved with either a Hot Fix or some new software that has been installed and rolling back to an earlier Restore Point should fix the issue if the OS is not to badly messed up at least.
