Alright, this problem started happening a few weeks ago.
-My wireless adapter for my computer is a USB adapter.
-I use my flash drive often to transfer files between computers.
-When I unplug my flash drive, my wireless adapter disconnects and I get kicked from the internet (I AM doing the safely eject)
-All of my other usb devices are fully functional, it's just my wireless adapter.

Help is appreciated, thanks in advance!
-Anthony
P.S. If you have any further questions, or anything you need to know, ask away! :p

Hi Anthony,
Are you absolutely sure that you safely remove your flash drive?
Sometimes wireless USB adapter can bee seen as external drive.
I've removed the wrong one few times...

First thing I'd try; chances are you have a 3rd party utility handling your wireless as well as Win 7's native wireless configuration utility. Disable/remove the one you don't use.

I am connected through the windows wireless configuration utility, when I installed the drivers for my router, it questioned me and asked if I want to use the router's utility, or if I wanted it to use windows, and I chose the windows one. :/
Though that is a good point to make it is not my circumstance. Thanks for your post!

Thing is, my wireless adapter does not show up in the safely remove thing. But I do understand what you mean, I always do that on my laptop.
Thank you for the post though!

?... so have you tried disabling Win Config Utility and going with the router software only?
