    Realtek RTL8811AU wireless LAN not connecting.


    Hello i have a Realtek RTL8811AU wireless LAN 802.11ac USB2.0 network adapter that i got for Christmas and im having a lot of trouble trying to get it to connect to my router and thus the internet.

    I have gone through the set up at least 5 times now and as the router is only 2 feet away i can't see how it can not receive a signal.

    Although my experience its limited where networking is concerned im not that bad at understanding as long as it does not get to complicated. Maybe its faulty hardware but i just don't know.

    Here is some additional information

    You post shows it is connected and does get the correct network setting you have a network cable as well. Having a network cable and wireless both running can confuse windows disable the cable the other thing is wireless can often connect via Windows until or makers they may use different ways so the utility may not show if Windows is in control

    Thank you very much. I don't know whether that should have been obvious or not. What I wanted the wireless thing for was to connect my camcorder to the computer without having to pull out the computer and connect it via a cable. Easy when you know the answers eh :)
