Wireless network is functioning but icon indicates it is disconnected and status unavailable

    I just installed sp2. Wireless network is working (both the LAN and WAN) but
    the wireless connection window indicates that it is disconnected.
    Furthermore, the status information is unavailable. I have 2 network cards,
    a regular NVIDIA network card and a USR5416 Robotics wireless adapter. I
    usually disable the NVIDIA network card because I am not using it but when I
    enable the NVIDIA card the status on my wireless adapter network adapter
    returns to normal for a while and then suddenly indicates that it is
    disabled but the network continues to function. Disabling the firewall does
    not help. Repairing the connection also fails although the network is
    functioning. What is the cause of this weird, obviously buggy behavior.
    Thanks...Peter

    From the information you've given, it's very hard to tell.
    Probably, some kind or "adapter switch" utility was installed on your system
    before update to SP2.

    Re: Wireless network is functioning but icon indicates it is disconnec

    Thanks for your reply. I have a very simple setup. This problem is something
    related to sp2. Are there any services or network settings which may cause
    this behavior? The problem again is that the wireless network is connected
    and working but all the windows related to network connections and status
    indicate that there is no connection.
    Thanks...Peter

    I would like to help troubleshoot this issue. Can you turn on logs...

    To turn on logs
    1) Open a command window.
    2) Type netsh ras set tr * en
    3) Hit enter
    4) Reproduce your problem
    5) Go to %windir% This is your windows directory
    6) Go to the tracing directory... Normally this is c:\windows\tracing

    Send the whole tracing directory to me...

    Send to
