Hello, I am running Windows Vista Home Premium x64, and using a Broadcom 802.11g Network Adapter for my home wireless connection. In the Network and Sharing center, my connection is set to "Identifying..." a long time, after which it connects for a few seconds, and goes back to "Identifying".
The weird thing is that my network works well. I can play online games, browse the web, download files without problem, so the connection is never really lost. The only thing that keeps flipping back and forth is the media sharing settings. I want to share media, but it doesn't work because while the network is identifying, it is treated as a public network, with all sharing turned off. For the few seconds it is connected, it goes back to being a private network, as it should be, and sharing is turned on, but not long enough to do anything with it.
I find this to be a very weird problem, does anyone have any ideas what could be causing it? The network signal is good, I'm only three meters away from the router with no walls in between. (But there is a hallway, so a cable is not an option.)
