Thanks to your advice, I examined the access point issue more closely, using Wireless Assistant. It seems that the state is flipping back and forth at about 1-second intervals between UNKNOWN
. When it shows UNKNOWN
, a MAC address appears as the access point under Status; when it shows N/A
, the access point is shown as - not available -
. The MAC address is indeed the MAC address of the router, which I verified from a different laptop.
So there almost certainly is an "association issue" -- but how can I resolve it?
