Question about Computers & Internet
Hello, I did a clean XP clean install on a older computer and when I installed my Network Adapter (Extreme N DWA-552), and yes, I did install the physical card first, I managed to install the drivers, but, the ethernet controller that was(?) already on the computer is showing up as new hardware and I can't seem to get rid of it (tried uninstalling the ethernet controller out of device manager), but, it keeps showing up on restart......................
Nothing wrong with having two network adapters installed on your computer. If you have this DWA-552 wireless adapter installed as well as an onboard NIC, the correct thing to do is have both drivers installed so you see them both in your Control Panel->Network Connections window.
If you really want the onboard nic to go away, go into device manager and disable it - not uninstall it.
