If you see this status associated with a Microsoft 6to4 Adapter on a computer running Windows Vista in a home environment, you may be able to uninstall the 6to4 adapter to resolve the problem. To uninstall the 6to4 adapter, right-click it and click Uninstall. After you uninstall the 6to4 adapter (or if the problem is not associated with the Microsoft 6to4 adapter), it may also be helpful to run an automated troubleshooting service from the Microsoft Support Web site (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=192795).
If your computer is part of a business network, consult your network administrator for the most appropriate action. There may be company tested drivers for your computer or there may be other considerations before you disable any IPv6 components.
I would like to bring to your notice one of the issue that came across with a Vista based PC of a EU who reported in his mail that in "Device" manager their are 6 to 4 adaptor is listing by name itself and for this he is unable to install any drivers as it is showing that the drivers are not installed for it. Even though EU is able to browse the internet. Normally the above issue is related to TCP/IP transmission protocol that uses by Vista. As Vista by default support IPv6 TCP/IP protocol for data transmission over the network. 6to4 adapter is a component used for transmitting IPv6 packets trough IPv4 network correctly. If the drivers for this component is not properly installed or corrupted there will be a code 31 or code 10 error appearing beside this component. You may update the driver for your network adapter or chipset, and then try to uninstall and reinstall the this component as mentioned below. I am enclosing a snapshot of the issue along with the mail so that you can also have a clear idea of the issue. =======Uninstalling 6to4 Adaptor========== 1.

If the issue persist then, I request you to disable this device in device manager.

To solve this problem with 6To4 adapter device with code 31, make sure you do the following:
1). Make sure you have all the updates installed for vista, such as, Important and Recommend updates.
2). [Right Click] my computer icon, and select (properties).
3). Select (Device Manager).
4). [Right Click] on the 6To4 icon, and select (Update Driver Software).
5). Click [Browse my computer for software drivers].
6). Click [Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer].
You should see the Microsoft 6To4 adapter listed?
If not you must uncheck the  box show compatible hardware.
7). Then scroll down the list of Manufacture until you find (Microsoft), NOT Microsoft Corporation!
8). Click on (Microsoft) as the Manufacture and scroll down about two clicks, you should see 6To4 adapter.
9). [Left Click] on Microsoft 6To4 adapter and (Click Next), it should load the drivers as normally.
That 6to4 adapter has been a problem for as long as I have been aware of it but I only have that issue when I use my print server. I don't believe the 6to4 is your actual wireless. Are you using a wireless print server?
Check the device status under the Device Manager. if the status of the device was just "drivers were not installed..." you may simply click on update driver button on the same window. If the error is code 10 or device could not start, the problem has something to do with the hardware. call the manufacturer of your laptop and check the warranty if it is still covered.

Hi, You don't mention what laptop you have, but if you browse to the laptop manufacturers website, eg. www.hp.com, they always have driver downloads for their products. Download the drivers for your laptop and reinstall these to get your network card working. Feel free to ask me for any further assistance regarding this matter. Best wishes, Graemevm
If Internet sharing is set up correctly one pc will be the one that connects directly to internet, the other will connect through a gateway or other device connected to your network.
Check they have'nt both got the same IP address.
Is this related to last problem, did you get the wireless card working wirelessly online?
