Re-install microsoft isatap adapter

Thought the adapter was something I had installed myself, so when couldn't find out anything about it, I took the rash step of un-installing it. according to information located AFTER I uninstalled it, it's the Microsoft ISATAP device Inter Site Automatic Tunnelling Address Adress Protocol, used to help enterprises transition to anIPv6 infrastructure, and encapsulates IPv6 traffic over an IPv4 infrastructure. since I'm new to this and also the net, I have no idea what to do next. thought I'd be able to find it and install it again, but I can't. Can someone help me please? I have an acer aspire 4710z note book . The wrong product is listed below in the product window as I couln't find the right one. Sorry. my aspire 4920 has shows that the microsoft isatapa is not working properly and i have uninstalled it from my sytem i want to install it back but i dont know how

    I have an Acer Aspire 5920 Notebook Computer, I notice this Micosoft ISATAP Adapter problem, at first I thought it is some drivers of my 5920 that couldnt find their drivers, I tried to re-install it but couldnt find the driver. I then went to google to search for Micosoft ISATAP Adapter and that how I found my self in this site. Uptill now I have no ideal of what Micosoft ISATAP Adapter is all about. It sicken me to see that system is telling that a system driver couldnt be found, could any body tell me how to solve this problem. Peter Agboro

Problem #1:
Please give more details about your setup -

  • What kind of router are you using (make. model, version)?
  • Do you have a wired or wireless connection from your computer to your router?
  • By "resetting" do you mean to "repair" the connection via the taskbar?
Problem#2:

This is apparently a well-known bug in Vista, but nothing to worry about. Take a look at the information from Microsoft.

Please give more details regarding problem #1 and I'm happy to see if I can be of any help.

In the Control Panel, update the drivers. If still unsuccessful, delete those adapters, restart your workstation and reinstall drivers. Helpful to have another workstation nearby in case you need to download the drivers from the Internet.

That's because you do not have the required drivers. check the box where the adapter came in or the website of the manufacture.

Internet connecting problem


First remove the antivirus suites and firewalls. Open IE Go to Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> Lan Setup Check whether "USe proxy server..." check box is checked. If so untick it. Apply and Ok. Then check. If you are bot sure whether you have a proxy or not you can chose "Automatically detect settings". That will override manual configs how ever. Alternatively you can check Connection settings of Firefox since it is working.
Check the device manager for the adapter status. Right click on My computer and go to manage. If it has yellow exclamation marks or red X as you said that means a device failure or driver failure. If so you have to rollback the drivers and if it doesn't work uninstall and re install drivers. Use Add Remove programs if a software is there. If you use a software to configure / access the network appliance (if you have one like a wireless router) un install and re install it.
Check this thread as well.
This 6to4 adapter is a IPv6-to-IPv4 conversion layer. If you are not using IPv6 communications across IPv4 routers, you do not need 6to4 enabled. You can disable it. What is the IP address you are using? Is it ip v 4 or 6? Check using ipconfig using a command window (cmd.exe in run box and hit enter). Not necessary to use IPv6 (only if your college or etc etc use IPv6. Check this thread as well. isatap will not work on Vista but it doesn't do any harm though. :D

The 6TO4 and ISATAP Adapters have stopped.


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

ISATAP adaptor


you have ipv6 enabled, this is to help the worldwide convergence to ipv6 form ipv4 . were running out of addresses if not already have ran out.
so from what i can tell it works with the tunneling adapter. altho it is still doing stuff on your computer, it's needed to make the internet work right now, if anyone of you have a "microsoft wi-fi miniport adapter" all of a sudden and you also don't like that you can't get rid of it unless you go to the web and download the old driver.
neither the miniport or the isatap adapter are actually "needed" you can get by without isatap if you either disable or uninstall ipv6. virtual wifi isn't needed, but it's uber cool cause it's for your wireless card and if you connect wireless to the internet, it will let you wirelessly share out that connection wirelessly , (like your a wireless router)

i think i should not that "eventually" you will need to install ipv6 to browse the internet.
more importantly it actually isn't designed to be a "TAP" but it certainly could be the target of hackers in the future including the mini-port (only because they are both new)

Netgear WG111 issue


The error you get from Windows about the digital signature is normal. This only means that windows hasn't tested and approved it. just as the Netgear guys will tell you, the wireless adapter is compatible and will work fine. When you get that message, you'll usually allow it or continue with the installation.

you can refer to this link for the system requirements of your Wireless adapter:
