    WIFI Networks not showing up in the network tray

    I just upgraded to windows 10 via windows updater tool (available on microsoft's official website).
    I'm using an external adapter i.e. TP-LINK-WN722N to connect to the wifi network because apparently, the router is located far off from where I use my laptop. The problem is that when I'm connected to the network through the external adapter, nothing shows up in the network tray. It can be clearly seen in the snapshot that although I'm connected to a network but NO available networks are showing up in the wifi network tray. I have to go to the NETWORK SETTINGS each time I need to look up for the available networks. I have tried reinstalling the adapter's drivers to no avail. However, this isn't the case with the built-in wifi adapter. It works absolutely fine (meaning that available networks show up with that one ON).

    Could someone please help me solve this?
