Constantly "Identifying" Private Network

Yes, I appear to have the same problem. I have a new desktop in home office
on wireless network with 4 other machines, all on encrypted network behind
router. Works perfectly when hard-wired. Running wireless it identifies as
a private network. Then after a while it goes to "Identifying" and changes
network type to public. After an hour or two it blocks the connection and I
have to reboot.

I know I am responding to something posted over a year ago but lets see how I go! I have just got windows vista home premium. The wireless connection says "local and internet" but it is constantly saying "identifying" - then it finds the private network, then it drops back to public network and says "identifying" - finds the private network, then drops back and does it all over again. It's in an endless loop.
I need it to be a private network 100% of the time so I can connect wirelessly with my other computer via my wireless router.
Interestingly my other computer (Compaq Laptop) runs Windows Vista Business and it connects fine. So possibly this is a windows vista home premium issue? Or it is some other weird hardware conflict on my desktop.
I have a new D-Link internal wireless card in the desktop and I have a NetComm wireless modem router. I used to have a Belkin one but just changed it over recently to NetComm in order to rule out an issue with the wireless router. Either one makes no difference so the wireless router is fine.
