Network adapter not showing up in device manager

I had cable co. install a new cable internet connection yesterday but when we went to set it up the modem would not automatically detect the tcp/ip address. we looked in the device manager for my Ethernet connection and it was there but it was in the "Unknown" section of my device manager and there was not Network adapter in the device manager. So I hooked up the modem to my old compaq laptop and everything worked fine. When I looked in my device manager it showed the network adapter and my Ethernet connection where is should be. The tech said that I might have deleted a .dll from Microsoft that was not allowing my modem to find the tcp/ip automatically. I know just enough about computers to search and troubleshoot but sometimes i think that if i do too much I will hurt my system and I guess I have succeeded. I have looked all over gateway and microsoft for drivers and help. so I thought I would ask the experts. please help, I can use my new internet connection on my old laptop but I want to use is on my Gateway media center desktop GT4024.

The tech was incorrect - your network adapter is just not recognized by the system. If you install the correct drivers for your particular network adapter it should be recognized, which should then solve your problem. Search the Gateway website for network drivers for your particular desktop, and if the network adapter was added (not built into the computer) then determine the manufacturer and model of your network adapter, then search the manufacturer's website for the correct drivers.

Even easier, if you still have the original disks that came with your computer and/or network adapter, they should include the correct drivers.

Hope this helps!

Look in the BIOS to see if the NIC is disabled. If it is disabled the enable it and install the drivers.

Dell dimension 1100 DE051 Internet drivers are installed All connected successfully Internet will not work Please help


Check that all drivers are installed and working in device manager as when I reinstalled Windows not all of the drivers installed and I had to do it manually. These drivers were the ones that give you access to the internet. These were network adapters and IDE ATA /ATAPI controllers.

Hope this helps.

Network adapter not working


Flying blind here, with not much info, but let's see. Have you tried a new cable? Have you tried a different outlet in the back of your router? Are you saying the light on the cable which plugs into the back of your computer. Have you checked to see if there are any errors showing in Device Manager?

Can connect to local but not Internet?
This is most likely due to a driver issue other than a settings issue. First off, if you are running your computer in selective startup, change it back to normal startup and reboot. If this clears the problem then great, you can go back to selective startup but be careful as to what services you shut down.
The easiest way to check if this is a driver issue is to update the driver for the device. This can be done at the Device Manager found in the control panel, (In XP, the device manager is in the “system” icon and under the hardware tab). Scroll down to the network adapters and click on the + sign. Double click on the adapter and choose to update driver, let it search the internet (windows update) if it wants to, if it finds an updated driver, allow it to install. If it does not find an updated driver, then maybe the driver you have is a recent one but it may be corrupt. If that is the case, then it would be better to right click on the adapter and choose uninstall, this will force windows to reinstall the device the next time it reboots, and again it will ask to search online for a fresh driver, choose yes and let it run. Once the device installs, try to connect to the internet.

Hello! I very much doubt that Memory will cause the problem you have. Are you using a secure network? if so you may have to pair it again with the p.c. try this! hover over the internet icon on the taskbar (2 computor monitors) it should show wireless networks available, if not right click on it then click set up network or search for available networks, if this fails uninstall the wireless router in the device manager and reload after re booting.
Hope this helps!

New issue


If you right-click the "unknown" device and select Update Driver, you can force windows to search for the correct driver, and then put in the CD or floppy that came with the network adapter, and tell Windows to look on that CD or floppy. If the installation process didn't work, this might.
