About 3 or 4 days ago, I bought a D-Link Wireless AC1200 Dual Band USB Adapter so I could connect my desktop computer to my network. I immediately ran the installation disk that came in the same box and plugged it into one of my USB 3.0 ports. I connected to my network with no issues at all. The following day, after turning on and off my computer I opened my internet browser and it didn't work. Nor did skype, spotify or steam. I did the windows troubleshooter and it mentioned that connection between me and my router was broken. So I pull out the power cables out of router and reset it. This temporarily solves my problem until I shut down my computer again. When I start it up I have to reset my router again for my internet to work.

My modem model is T1200H and is from telus.


What can I do to fix my problem?

I'm guessing the D-Link device came with a wireless connection manager software? It's possible that it's not set to automatically connect which you should be able to change. If at all possible there should be an option to allow windows to control the wireless stick, that way you can make sure it's set to automatically connect.

Yes, it did come with software. But I see no option to allow windows to control the wifi stick. But when I click on the internet button in my taskbar it says it is connected. Just no internet access.

If you click the "More Info" tab, there's a 2-minute instructional video on how to install and set it up.
