Completely remove the LAN adapter and disable "Plug 'n Play OS" in the BIOS, as follows:
1) Remove the card from Device Manager, under Network Adapter
2) Delete C:\WINDOWS\INF\DRVDATA.BIN
3) Delete C:\WINDOWS\INF\DRVIDX.BIN
4) Delete the following files. Not all of them may exist.

  • C:\WINDOWS\INF\NET82557.INF
  • C:\WINDPWS\INF\NET559A9X.INF
  • C:\WINDOWS\INF\NET5579X.INF
5) Shutdown and restart the PC, and enter BIOS setup.
6) Find the option for Plug and Play BIOS, and disable it.**
7) Restart Microsoft Windows* 95 and use the Intel® installation diskette to reinstall the adapter.

How do I find out if I have an installed wireless network adaptor


In Windows, you go to the device manage (right click My Computer and select Device Manager from left panel) click on the triangle just left of "Network adapters" and you will see the network adapter that is physically installed in your computer. If there is a yellow exclamation mark on the icon, then there is a problem with the driver or the network controller is not functioning as expected.

Goto Start > Run > type "devmgmt.msc " without quotes and hit the enter key. You will get Device Manager opened. Now see if you see any yellow exclamation mark. If you see yellow icon that means the current drivers are corrupted or the drivers are not installed.

There is a yellow exclaimation on my network adapter in device manager


This not necessarily cause for alarm. You can try to reinstall the driver for the device to see if that clears out the exclamation mark and, most cases, it will.
The exclamation mark simply means that Windows has found some sort of problem with the device. Double-click the adapter and see what the Device Manager's status says about it. This can, generally, point you in the right direction on what is wrong.
If reinstalling the driver doesn't work then post what the Device Manager status is for the device.

Code 41 means the driver is either not loaded or corrupt.
Download a fresh driver from Acer and update the BIOS at the same time as that can give errors similar to this.

In Device Manager, under Network Adapters I find a new entry called "Microsoft ISATAP Adapter".The yellow explanation mark indicating a problem is present. Status shows "Windows is unable...


Hi.
Let me explain you about the Microsoft ISATAP Adapters.
ISATAP (Intra-Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol) is an IPv6 transition mechanism meant to transmit IPv6packets between dual-stack nodes on top of an IPv4 network.
It is a Windows Operating System Generic Driver.
This Driver will be installed automatically.

As this is a Windows default Driver, it has no specific functions.
As you are able to view the "yellow exclamation mark", you may just un-install the Driver..
This should not change the functionality of the Computer.
1) Right-click on the "ISATAP Adapter" in the Device Manager. 2) Then, click on "Un-install". 3) This should un-install the Driver. 4) Once you have done the above steps, restart the Computer for the settings to be enabled.
Performing the above steps should resolve the issue.
Hope this helps.
Please feel free to contact for further information and assistance.

Have netcore310g adapter got cd. computer crashed had to reload everything now my wire won,t work, IT LOOKS LIKE DRIVERS WON,T LOAD -HELP. TRIED TO LOAD MANUALLY NO LUCK PLEASE ADVISE WHAT TO DO TRYING...


Hello,
You will want to check in your device manager to see if the network card is not being recognized and you will be able to update the driver there.

For windows XP, rght click on my computer, select properties and then select "ahrdware" and device manager.

For windows VIsta and 7, go to your control panel and open Device manager there.

Once open, you should see a network adapter with a yellow question mark or yellow exclamation mark beside it.
In either case, make sure the driver disk is in your disk drive, right click on the network adapter and select "update driver"; then just select the "recommended" options and follow through.

If this still doesn't work, try uninstalling the device from the device manager and then install the drivers using the disk.

Thanks,

Pat

Laptop cannot log on wirelessly . have Bigpond land line and an Optus wireless connection , neither will connect . Other computers in the house have no problem


Check if the wireless switch on the Computer is turned ON. Based on the Operating system, make sure that wireless is enabled in the supplied application, for instance, if you're using Windows Vista Operating System then make sure that wireless is enabled in Windows Mobility center.
Check in the Device manager whether the wireless adaptor has any exclamation mark. You can reach to the device manager by typing devmgmt.msc in the run dialog box and clicking OK.
Under the Device manger, click the plus sign beside the "network adaptor" and chekc if the wireless driver is listed and doesn't have any exclamation mark. If wireless driver is listed but has an exclamation mark then right click on it and uninstall. When prompted to delete then select yes and restart the Computer.
next visit the support site of the manufacturer to download the wireless driver compatible to the installed Operating system. Furthermore, you can run network diagnosis by opening Internet Explorer and click on the 'repair network".

No wifi after re-load of xp system software


Did you reinstall the drivers for the device? Check the Device Manager for your system and see if Windows sees the wireless device. If you have a red X, the device is disabled; if you have either an unknown device or the wireless device with a yellow dot with a black exclamation point, then either the driver is not installed, or the driver is improperly installed.
