    How to fix yellow sign of Wifi adapter ?


    Hi

    I work normally for few days then suddenly when I boot my computer I get no internet and I find yellow sign on my usb wifi adapter (netgear) so I changed the usb adapter to another socket and that fixed the problem for a while then it happen again and it does not matter now when I switch between the two usb sockets from my PC back so I am using now the front USB sockets !!!

    What is the problem and how to fix ?

    Right-click the network icon in the lower right corner of the screen and select "Troubleshoot problems".

    First, look in the properties of the adapter, power managment tab, uncheck Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.
    Second, go into the advanced power options and turn off fast startup or from a command line,
    powercfg.exe /h off

    Move the device to a different USB port to get it working again, then press the Windows and "R" keys simultaneously, type "control netconnections" into the "Run" box and click "OK". When the connection applet starts, right-click the Wi-Fi icon, select "Properties", "Configure", click on the "Power Management" tab and make sure that "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is unchecked.
