Wireless Connectivity (from my PC) is always down?

Hello team,

I am having problems with my PC with the wireless connectivity. At the moment the PC is running on the wireless. I installed a TP-Link hardware (wireless) inside the pc - so I don't have to run a ethernet wire from the router to my PC.

I also installed the software TP-Link which came with the hardware in the packet to my computer as well.

However each FIRST time I boot up my PC, the wireless icon (right bottom on my taskbar) has a red x on it. Meaning there is no connectivity. So I reboot the PC again then it shows. This is what I normally do every now and then.

1st Step - start the PC (no wireless)
2nd Step - restart the PC (there's wireless).

Also wIth the 1st step (no wireless) - I usually then go to the Device Manager and check if I'm able to see the Wireless Adapters installed there - what I see is only nothing and I see the yellow mark of Ethernet (the pc is telling me to install the Ethernet utility). But I have already installed (very frustrating) the ethernet utility and the the early stage when I built my PC

And so the second step...when I restart the PC - I was able to acces my network and so if I go to Device Manager > Network Adapters (I was able to see the following > Atheros AR5007G Wireless Network Adapter and Realtek PCIe GBE Family COntroller.

There is a yellow mark (Other devices) for PCI Simple COmmunications Controller...

I am wondering now why do I have to restart everytime I log into to my PC just to acces the network (or to get my wireless going).

Please help....

Many thanks

Easy answer is to follow the Directions provided by TP LINK

That generally doesn't involve installing their Software just the WiFi Driver and then using the Windows WiFi Networking.

Of course if you are not using Windows then none of the above is of any use.
