Re-install microsoft isatap adapter

Thought the adapter was something I had installed myself, so when couldn't find out anything about it, I took the rash step of un-installing it. according to information located AFTER I uninstalled it, it's the Microsoft ISATAP device Inter Site Automatic Tunnelling Address Adress Protocol, used to help enterprises transition to anIPv6 infrastructure, and encapsulates IPv6 traffic over an IPv4 infrastructure. since I'm new to this and also the net, I have no idea what to do next. thought I'd be able to find it and install it again, but I can't. Can someone help me please? I have an acer aspire 4710z note book . The wrong product is listed below in the product window as I couln't find the right one. Sorry.

    Re- uninatalled ISATAP adaptor. In the last shower of updates, another ISATAP attached itself to my tree. I was able to right click on this, choose update driver software, choose browse my computer, choose let me pick from list, and it came up with an even better model, so I installed it!! Re IPv6 - (6to4),found some really good info in technet(type in IPv6, look at links) updated 6th Sept. Would appear that my Vista actually comes with that as default, and in fact checks this before IPv4. Not only required for businesses, but actually needed for search, also something to do with gaming and being on the same screen as the other person! Re video card being faulty, daughter sent me large selection of pictures - which it played perfectly as a slide show. Would appear there is only something wrong with the little practice show I did, and that my comp just isn't specific when reporting the prob! will try again and see how I get on. Thanks for all your suggestions, thought you might be interested how I got on.

If you're not an enterprise in the midst of transitioning to an IPv6 infrastructure, it's not necessary (and arguably not desirable) to re-enable IPv6. I want to ask what the original issue is/was that prompted your removing it and whether or not you're experiencing an issue now that you have removed it.

Need new download of ISATAP drivers


Greetings,

On a Windows Vista-based computer, the Microsoft ISATAP adapter appears with a yellow exclamation mark (!) next to it in Device Manager.
You can safely ignore this error message. This error message does not indicate a problem with the adapter. The adapter will continue to work correctly.
Check out this article for more information on this:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932520
If this is still not working,
First try to reset Winsock from command prompt, this will reset all the Network components to default:
Click on start, type CMD,'Right click and Run as Administrator'.
At the command prompt type:
netsh winsock reset catalog
In such a case, I suspect this problem to be caused by network adapter missing or corrupt. Please firstly reinstall the driver for your wireless network adapter. Then try to reinstall Microsoft ISATAP using following steps:
1.In Device Manger, right-click the item of Microsoft ISATAP and select Uninstall.
2.Still in Device Manager, click Action and select Add legacy hardware.
3.Click Next, and select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced), click Next.
4.Select Network Adapters and click Next.
5.Select Microsoft in left panel and Microsoft ISATAP Adapter in the right panel.
6.Click Next and finish the remaining wizard.

I need microsoft ISATAP adapter #3 driver


you can try this:
Step1:

However, try the below steps to fix the issue you are experiencing:

1. Click on Start, type Device Manager in the search box.

2. In Device Manger, right-click the item of Microsoft ISATAP and select Uninstall.

3. Still in Device Manager, click Action and select Add legacy hardware.

4. Click next, and select Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced), click next.

5. Select Network Adapters and click next.

6. Select Microsoft in left panel and Microsoft ISATAP Adapter in the right panel.

7. Click next and finish the remaining wizard.

Step2:

The ISATAP is related to Internet Protocol 6.

Please check if IPv6[Internet Protocol version] is enabled on your computer to obtain an IPv6 address.


however this driver only pertains to ipv6, so your internet adapter should still function properly. if it is, you can do this:


Disable but leave ISATAP in the hardware list and go to your manufacturers Website
and check for Post SP1 Driver updates for your computers Chipset.

Microsoft ISATAP Adapter This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device.


ISATAP is Microsoft trying to allow IPv6 to function over an IPv4 infrastructure, however, it was released extremely prematurely, and as a result, doesn't like to work, or install. According to Microsoft, your computer should continue to function without ISATAP functioning,and the error message may be ignored. However, if you believe that this may be causing you some problems, then you may navigate to the device manager ( Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Device Manager ) from this window, see if you can find ISATAP adapter and 4TO6 adapter, right-click these, and select "Disable" NOTE: this may cause Internet Explorer and Windows Mail to run slower and have a few errors.

I hope this helps!

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.
