The crazy thing is when I connect to the network at work, I don't have this problem. It's only when I am at home that my computer does this.
Have you tried different usb ports on the computer? or a different cord possibly?

Changed my cord and usb port. I just don't understand why it will connect at work but not a home. Weird.
