Re: Disable LAN adapter
Hi, If you are using XP you can disable the network adapter by going to "Control Panel" then "System" click on the "Hardware" tab and then on "Device Driver". In the list find your "Network Adapters" and open it to see your actual card. Right click on your card and select "Properties". On the panel that displays, right at the bottom near the "OK" button there is a drop down "Device Usage" text box, at the moment it would be reading, "Use this Device (Enable)". Click on the Drop down arrow and and select the "Do Not Use this Device (Disable)" option and then click "OK"
If your PC is a desktop type with a network card in one of your PCI slots, or similar, you could also actually remove the adapter card simply by removing the outer case covers and then unscrewing the nut holding the card in and carefully pulling it out quite firmly in a straight motion. You may want to get another small metal cover strip to screw in where the card came from.
Before opening your PC though be sure you are not voiding any warranties that you may have got when you bought it.

You probably have a firewall on your PC (or mac), or router preventing you from connecting to the internet, either plug the cable to the router, disable the firewall (if using a Netgear router, disable the "SPI firewall" under the "WAN setup" of your router), your Internet Service Provider or ISP might be preventing systems like the wii to connect, check with the ISP to see if they are or not.

Disable it and then re enable it. hope your on board lan will work now if still not re-install your lan driver through your motherboard cd.. pls reply o assist you more..
This message is shown once the computer is booted; more than likely these Network Adapters are not being utilize, because the network connection is using "Wireless"service; the "Ethernet Controller is part of the (Wired-LAN) Family." The Drivers maybe (Disabled), or the ("drivers") need to be "Updated. "Do the following; go to Control Panel, open Device Manager, click to open "Network Adapters", check to see if adapter are in ("error, disabled, or working properly etc"). "Update Drivers", and restart the computer." "I hope this help FiX it!"

if the lan card is disabled then you have to reseat the lan card if that is a external lan card connected & not the integrated one..also check for the network adapters if they are installed under device manager or not...in case not you also have to install network adapters...
Network connection showed 3 LAN or High-Speed Internet connections. One said it was disabled, another one had a big red X over it, and the last one said connected. The big red X, though unplugged, was apparently still active. The fix was as simple as disabling it.
1. what is the model number of your adapter? 2. what is the operating system of your computer? 3. did you install the wireless adapter on your pc or is it a built in wireless adapter?
-- if you install another wireless adapter on your pc, possible that its the one causing the conflict between the two utility. I suggest to disable the other adapter before installing the other wireless adapter -- if the wireless adapter is a built in wireless adapter and you are using a windows xp computer, chances are that the built in utility and the xp wzc are the one causing the problem. you have to disable one of this utility to make your connection working -- the utility is sometimes located at your system. if you wish to use the utility you have to disable the wzx or the other way around.
