You may also find the adapter status is "Not Connected". To fix this wireless not connecting issue, open Networks and click Connect. Sometimes to fix the problem, it may require reconfigure the router. To ensure proper connectivity or to verify it, you can try to Ping. This is a method of sending a message to another PC on the network. It is done to check whether the PC is reachable or not. In order to ping a computer, go to the command prompt. Type 'ping' followed by the IP address of the particular computer.

If you find the pinging of the router fails, use the admin utility of the router to resolve the issue. You need to view Wireless LAN settings and set them according to the wireless connection settings of the client. You should remember one thing that both router and client should be 802.11 standard compatible.

Most commonly the users complain that the connection speed is too slow. Since routers work in the 2.5GHz band and it is also used by other wireless devices, the interface creates problem.
