    What wireless utility are you using to manage your connection? Is there another one running?

    i am currently in ukraine, it was all working fine before, for a year and a half. I did not change anything at all and still use the same provider. Maybe the wifi broke on my laptop?

    The ipconfig /all looks good, and you say you are getting internet access with the wireless. Unless I misunderstood that your Wi-Fi is working great.

    One possibility for what you are seeing is that two wireless utilities are running; only one can be controlling the adapter so the other one shows "not connected."

    What you should do is try to answer the questions in my post # 2. :)

    You may be using the Windows XP WZC utility. Or the Intel Proset. Or one named after your PC manufacturer. And maybe more than one of these is running.
