My System

If your not using your Ethernet cable to your router, then it will read that the Media (Ethernet cable) is disconnected, this shouldn't affect your wireless connection.
Go to Control Panel/Internet Options/Connections/LAN Settings. Make sure all of the boxes are unchecked. Now go to Control Panel/Network Connections Right click the Local Area Connection and make sure it is Enabled. Now choose Properties Scroll down to Internet Protocol IPv4 and IPv6/Properties. make sure Obtain an IP Address and DNS server address Automatically are both checked. Now go back to the command prompt and type ipconfig /release and hit enter. The ip address should now read now type ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter. now type ipconfig /renew. You may get the message that Local Area Connection is disabled. Now search for wireless networks and choose your router, and connect.
