Question about NexxTech NPCINIC Network Adapter

1 Answer

Device won't start Code 10

I had my adapter running for a month or two.  Suddenly I came home and turn on the computer and then my Xbox and I had no connection to my 360.
I check on my network setting and my NexxTech card Icon was no longer showing.  I went into device manager and had it uninstall and then reinstalled.  That did not work. I opened my hub and detached the card then reattached it and when I went to run the add new hardware it showed the card but said the card will not work correctly.  So other than buying a new card.  Is there anything else I can do.  Oh yeah I am running windows xp

Re: Device won't start Code 10

Try starting in Safe mode (press F8) before the WinXP start screen appears, then uninstall the device. Also you can check "Show Hidden Devices" in device manager.

Also try a different slot if there is one available.

Code 10 means there isn't any resources or address left for your card.

Also make sure your BIOS is set for automatic plug and play mode in case the setting was reset somehow.

What are the steps to hooking up your xbox 360 wireless network adapter


Plug the wireless USB adapter into the USB port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.

Turn on your Xbox 360 console.

The console will recognize the wireless adapter and will walk you thru the wireless network setup. Be sure to have your WEP key (if encryption is used) for your router before you start this process.

This adapter works well - I am using one and regularly play Modern Warfare 2 with multiple chat sessions. There is no noticable difference between my wired network connection and this wireless network connection.

Happy gaming!

There is no way to do this as of right now. The only way this will happen is if Microsoft releases a driver download for this device to work with a PC.

What is NAT type

NAT is a protocol for networking. Network Address Translation was developed to keep from running out of IP addresses. When your Internet Service Provider gives you service they give you 1 IP address which would only allow one device to be hooked to they internet. NAT allows you to assign private IP addresses to each device in your home and then translates it back to the one address your ISP provided to you. Linksys routers typically have this set by default. Are you plugging your XBOX to your Linksys router or are you using wireless adapter?

Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection code 10

Code 10 usually means the device driver is not compatible, outdated or corrupt.

Try uninstalling the wireless device again and then reinstall using the latest driver available from:*+Home+Premium%2C+32-bit+version&lang=eng&strOSs=153&submit=Go!

NB If you're running XP, use the second one.

Hope this helps

Wireless card suddenly cannot detect any signals

I would suspect ya adapter.. the ONLY way to sort it is to try it in another PC see if it works.. USB devices seem to be very flimsy and we get heaps of 'em in the shop.. 9 times outa 10 it's the USB device gone weird.. substitution is the only way to isolate the problem.

Adaptor not recognised!

on the one that is working are you using the usb extender? sometimes it starts to work if you dont use it, and just plug it directly into the usb port. i think xp has problems recognizing the extended thing. (srry i really dont know what to call that thing lol)

"WPC54G is not installed"

Hai rob if ur device manager says error code 10then it seems the drivers are not installed properly for the adapter, try to update drivers, go to device manager, right clich adapter and click update driver and try to update driver, in some case ur pc may require win 2000 cd to.. check for the instructions while installing it , that would surely fix your problem..
