Question about Network & Wireless Adapters
I sort of have a problem with my wireless network but I'm not sure with exactly what. I can get access to the Internet so in that regard something is working but I'm not sure what.
When I start-up my computer Microsoft Broadband says I have a problem but then when I run it a second time it seems to work fine.
Device manager shows three entries under "Network Adapters":
1394 Net Adapter
Microsoft Wireless PCI Adapter MN-730
Nvidia nForce Networking Controller
All three show a green light.
In "Network Connections" I show three entries:
1394 Connection - Connected
Wireless Network Connection - Connected - Microsoft Wireless PCI Adapter
Local Area Connection - Network cable unplugged NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller - it has a red x through it.
So what is all of this stuff doing? Do I need all three or just one or just two?
Lets see here, your NVIDIA thing is for your ethernet port in your computer.
the wireless PCI adapter, is well, a wireless adapter, its used to connect your wireless, and a 1394 Net Adaptor Connection is basically Win2k/XP's way of telling you that you have a Firewire interface installed in your system.
so, if your going wireless, you dont need NVIDIA, and as your device manager shows that it has a red x on it, it shows that its disabled. as for everything else, i wouldent worry about it.
