I have a Texas Instruments CDC Ethernet/RNDIS Adapter installed on my computer. The Device Manager is telling me that all is not well with it, but does not tell me the problem; and reinstalling doesn't help. Do you have any insights that might help me?

You don't say what make/model of network adapter (NIC), whether it's wired or wireless, or if it was operating under the same service pack level before, so I have to make a lot of assumptions.
Is Windows really not recognizing it (ie: does it have an exclamation mark next to the NIC in device manager?) or is it being recognized by Windows but just cannot connect to the wireless router? If the latter, check your wireless configuration (SSID, WPA key, etc). Since you have WinXP SP1, it could be that there is not a driver for that particular NIC. Later service packs include updated drivers as well as bug and security fixes. Recommend you identify the NIC and if you have the driver disk for it, go into Windows device manager to select a reinstall from that disk. If you don't have it, use another computer to download its driver and after installing it and getting Internet access, you should also download and install the latest SP, which would be SP3.
Please right click on my computer icon and select properties.Then under the HARDWARE tab click on device manager and then go to network adapter.Double click on it under that you will see your ethernet card click on it and select Driver tab and install it.
you must ethernet controller driver first
goto device manager, right click at exclamation mark, then chose update driver, follow instuction step by step, if it ask for cd driver insert motherboard cd driver, if you did not have cd driver download ethernet controller here http://www.asrock.com/MB/download.asp?Model=P4i65GV&o=XP
wait until process finish and exclamation mark at device manager disappear, and try to connect your computer to internet

thank you for using fixya
Here is a link to an excellent tutorial that will guide you through the process of updating drivers in XP.
It has instructions for opening the Device Manager and finding out what hardware is installed in your system. Then you need to go online from another computer, download the appropriate drivers and burn them to cd, load this cd in your computer, then update the drivers on your system from the cd. You can drag the setup files to your desktop and install them from there.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment and rate this post....thanks!
Have you checked to see if the driver is already installed, and the volume is just turned down? (Start> programs > accessories > entertainment > volume control) If so, try going into Device Manager (right click My Computer > properties > hardware > device manager) See if the sound card is showing up there as a yellow question mark or other error icon, it will stand right out. If it's there, right click, and uninstall it. Now (still in device manager) press the button that looks like a computer screen with a magnifying glass on it, that will scan for hardware changes and pick up the sound card, which windows includes the driver for automatically. If this still doesn't work, try downloading from realtek here, and installing that. Hope this helps.
