Wireless Network Keeps Disappearing
Are you facing issues with your wireless network? Read more to find the ways to fix them.
Wireless networking is a technology by which computers are made capable of wirelessly communicating with each other over a network. It can range from being a small wireless network set up at home to a wide area network that spans an entire campus. Wireless networking is the latest and the most convenient way of connecting with other computers or a wide area network like the Internet. However, a wireless network can get affected by issues ranging from signal interference caused by a working microwave oven to thick walls that confines the wireless router's normal working range. A wireless network connection that has been set up on a computer can get affected or may malfunction due to many issues ranging from system issues to router errors. Issues like wireless network keeps disappearing mostly happen due to operating system file issues or corruptions that are caused by critical infections or network driver errors.
Discussed below are some points that will help the users in accessing the network connection even if the related icons are not shown in the notification area of the computer:
- Access Connection from 'My Network Places'
- Set shortcuts
- Use third party applications
Access Connection from 'My Network Places'
In some cases, the wireless connection icon may disappear from the notification area of the computer causing great inconvenience to the user. The user can still access the connection and related functions by accessing the same from 'My Network Places'. Accessing the network places or network and sharing centre menu via the system control panel or the start-menu will help in establishing the connection under minimal complications.
Although, the users can access the network related parameters like connections and options from 'My Network Places' in the 'Control Panel', it is not the fastest way to access a connection. So, the user can set shortcuts for the preferred connections and the router homepage on the desktop by utilizing 'Set shortcut' or 'Send to desktop option'. This enables the user to access the connection in a few simple clicks.
Apart from the options provided in the operating system, the user can make use of third party network related applications for accessing network connections and other related options. Most of the network connection manager applications have the options that can be utilized by the user to access and manage network connections. This functionality of the applications can be well utilized in case the normal network connection icon disappears from its default notification area.
