Wirless networking


The red line through the icon indicates that that network adapter is disabled in the device manager. (You can enable it by right clicking My computer, choose Manage>device manager. But the realtek is used for your ethernet cable connection. The 1394 connections are network adapters used for network connections to printers, etc. probably left over from your work setting, and can be disabled for the moment.
You don't mention what OS you're using, but I'll guess XP, and provide another link for vista just in case....
In any event, it's going to be necessary for you to reconfigure your network connection to the router/gateway you're using at home to connect to your ISP. Here's a general wireless networking troubleshooter, in the event that you've already covered the basics. And here and here are articles/links that will give you more advanced guidance. (Also here.)
But here and here are links to basics: to help you set up and maintain a network in xp, and here's an alternative for vista.
Another excellent resource to help you answer questions and troubleshoot the connection is this site, which has specifics that deal with many common ISPs.
In the end, you may find the easiest thing to do is start at the beginning by setting up a new home network and working through each step to establish a new connection.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

The Realtek EAPPkt Protocol Service failed to start


Try this..1.Try to uninstall the USB adapter and re install it again. To do this go to Add/Remove Programs under Control Panel and find the usb adapter your install in this case its Alfa Wireless USB Adapter and uninstall it and restart your computer after uninstallation. 2. Remove the USB adapter while restarting and insert it again until windows already loaded and all windows startup program have all been started.
3. System will look for the system driver of USB adapter and it will prompt you for the driver location in this window do not choose the recomended instead click browse and locate the driver cd and look for driver folder and select the applicable driver for your operating system such as WinXP if your using XP.
4. If there is no driver folder in cd, go to my computer, explore cd and run setup or install this will install the pending driver installation.

Ethernet driver


dear brian,

to get you an overview on which components you have, although not installed or recognized by win xp pro, download pcwizard2008, install and run the hardware detection program, it'll give you a lots of details about your computer, you can even save the data to a pdf-file.

networking components on your laptop may be:
- the 1394 adaptor
- the( to be found) ethernet card
- and if it is onboard or u plug it in via USB 2.0 port: the WLAN-adaptor

look for the (onboard?) realtek ethernet
card(rj-45 plug, similiar to dsl-cable)
using pcwizard, find out about the model and download suitable driver rom the net for winXP.
install and then try setting up a network/internet connection

(be wise enough to use the right cable:
for hooking up your lap to an internet dsl-router use dsl cable, to establish PC to laptop connecton you will need DSL cable plus crossover adaptor !)
i recommend to use cable connections, they're
older, more reliable and for safety reasons, better than wirelessLAN!

if you have used the 1394-network adaptor before, you are better than me, I dunno anything about it.

WLAN is an option when using laptop not at home- but don't clearly understand if the toshiba model u use already has WLAN-onboard device or u do use an external, USB 2.0 device to connect to the net...?
please give more detail about that- and do tell which toshiba laptop u use as this is helpful for me to find u a proper driver, if still needed.

C U here on fixya?!

Realtek8185 Wireless adapter


Hi Terry,

I believe it was the following...

Realtek Semiconductor Corp - Networking - TRENDnet TEW-421PC/TEW-423PI 802.11g Wireless Cardbus/PCI Adapter
Installation date: ‎2/‎5/‎2008 12:07 PM
Installation status: Successful
Update type: Optional
Realtek Semiconductor Corp Networking software update released in October, 2007
More information:
http://winqual.microsoft.com/support/?driverid=20122747
Help and Support:
http://support.microsoft.com/select/?target=hub

I just checked on Microsofts Windows Update again, and there is another optional update for the Realtek. This only partially fixed my problem - we've also had to adjust the channel our wireless DSL router uses; our cordless phone was interferring with my signal. Now that I've adjusted the channel on the router, I haven't dropped my signal once in more than 3 days. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Quantum Maxtor Serial Adapter


Though I suspected that I already knew the answer to your question about a source for drivers for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter, I wanted to research this in order to be able to provide PROOF that my answer is correct. As a result, I've now spent more than two hours researching this issue for you... As it turns out, the drivers you have requested are actually EMBEDDED within Windows itself, and have been ever since the release of Windows 98 Second Edition. They are listed within Windows as "OHCI 1394" drivers, which is another designation for FireWire / IEEE1394 device drivers. According to the Seagate / Maxtor Knowledge Base, there are NO downloadable drivers for the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter, and none have ever existed. The software originally provided on the CD in the retail package for the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter did NOT include drivers, which I'll explain in more detail later... As a general rule, when installing the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter into a system for the first time, you insert the PCMCIA card into the Type II slot while Windows is loaded, NOT while the system is shut down; after inserting the card into an empty Type II CardBus slot, you should then hear a tone indicating that Windows has detected a device in the slot. The Add New Hardware Wizard should then load, and you might be prompted to insert your Windows CD into your optical drive, though this should NOT be necessary if you've previously installed any other FireWire devices on the same system. You can download the Installation Guide (in .PDF file format) for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter from either of the following links: http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/maxtor/en_us/documentation/ins tallation_guides/1394_cardbus_installation_guide.pdf http://ec1.images-amazon.com/media/i3d/01/A/man-migrate/MANUAL000 041641.pdf Simply right-click one of those links, and choose the "Save As..." option to download and save the Installation Guide to your Desktop, or to another folder where you can find it easily... The following links should help you to learn more; the first link explains the reason why drivers are NOT available for download for the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter: http://seagate.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/seagate.cfg/php/enduser/stx_adp.php?p_faqid=831 The next link describes a known problem (and the solution) when the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter is installed on some IBM Thinkpad laptops: http://seagate.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/seagate.cfg/php/enduser/stx_adp.php?p_faqid=1959 The next link describes the hardware and software requirements for installing the Maxtor 1394 CardBus Adapter: http://seagate.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/seagate.cfg/php/enduser/stx_adp.php?p_faqid=762 As I've previously mentioned, the original software (on the CD-ROM) provided with the Maxtor 1394 Cardbus Adapter were the "MaxTools" utilities (which I have NOT been able to locate for download); they were NOT actual hardware drivers for a Windows OS... Well, I hope this solves the mystery of the "missing" FireWire drivers; though I don't recall ever needing to load third-party drivers for ANY FireWire devices I've installed in a Windows system, I wanted to be able to PROVE to you (and to anyone else who reads this in the future) that the drivers are already embedded within Windows, and that they are NOT available for download. As long as you use a supported version of Windows (all versions beginning with the release of Windows 98 Second Edition), you already have the drivers available, though Windows will probably need to extract them from the Windows CD, if they haven't been loaded onto the system previously. Good luck with this; let us know if you have any problems installing your FireWire card. I don't think that is likely to happen, as long as you follow the steps in the Installation Guide. You might want to create printouts of those Seagate Knowledge Base pages (or copy them to your hard drive, or at the least, bookmark the individual links) for future reference.
