Hey, I can't get a wireless adapter to work on my newly purchased desktop.
Tried 2 different brands, same result:
After installing drivers, resetting wireless router etc. the wireless connection sometimes shows up but can't be connected to.
I used:
1) TP link wireless adapter
2) Netgear N600 wireless dual band usb adapter.

The netgear one I'm using right now just says, "scanning" constantly.
Any help would be mightily appreciated.
Here's diagnostics:
