Lost my network adapter

Q: Lost my network adapter

I have been having intermittent problems with wifi connectivity so decided to uninstall my network adapters (Realtek and Dell) and then reboot to see if it would solve the issue. Unfortunately I must have checked uninstall driver on the Dell adapter because after rebooting, the Dell adapter had disappeared.

I would really appreciate some advice on how to get it back. I remember in the (good) old days of XP I would get a "found new hardware" message on a reboot, but no more.

Thanks in advance.

Preferred Solution: Lost my network adapter

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Lost my network adapter

Go to Control Panel > Device Manager. You should see the device there (probably with yellow exclamation marks). Click on the device and have it look for device driver - if that doesn't work use the computer your posting with to go to Dell website and download the drivers, then tell Windows to use those drivers.

If you don't see the devices in Devices Manager, post back. That's a different problem.

My Via Rhine 11 Fast ethernet adapter has got lost. Device manger says its there. If I uninstall it then new hardware finds it and reinstalls it. But when I try to use home connection wizard it says its not connected.
I used to have a home network, which is showing up as "a network cable is unplugged" which is garbage. Yes I tried a different cable.
I suspect that when my adsl network fell over while I was away, someone tried to connect the adsl modem to the lan connector in an effort to get it to work.
All the adsl needed was to be reset. But I cannot setup my home network to work.
I'm a bit flumoxed as to where to go from here.

A:Solved: Home network adapter lost

One final thing, its an onboard network card, so i can't rip it out.
The internet is working fine through the adsl/usb connection.
Have ggogled the problem and I've found a reference to
which postings have found useful to fix the error.

The only Network adapter left is the ethernet. I've been on the Acer website ( its an Aspire 9500) but they only have drivers for XP operating system - not windows 7.
What should I do ?

Hi Ron, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Try this to start

Control Panel > Administration Tools > Computer Management > Services & Applications > Services.

Scroll down this list to find 'WLAN Auto Config'

Double click on 'WLAN Auto Config' On the general tab, select from the start up type drop down menu, select 'Automatic'. Under Service Status click on 'Start'. Then 'Apply' these settings and exit from all open control panel windows.

This should then allow Windows to set the required bindings.

I have my AWUS036H for a few months now and it worked perfect until now.
My landlord has a router in his appartment and I need to connect to that router to get access to the internet.
I bought this adapter for a better signal but this week I got a very weird problem.
My adapter can find all the networks surrounding it except my landlord his network. But my inbuilt adapter can find my landlord's network and all the others. To clarify, here an example:

AUS036H finds:
Neighbour1 (strong signal)
Neighbour2 (strong signal)

Inbuilt adapter finds:
Neighbour1 (weak signal)
Neighbour2 (weak signal)
Landlord's network (weak signal)

What is going on? It drives me nuts!

Thanks in advance

Here is the problem, the AWUS036H can only see b or g signals, it's not 802.11n capable so it can't see N only signals. The Landlord has a router which is set to broadcast the faster setting which is 802.11n only, not mixed with b or g because that would limit the connection speed to 54Mbps.

This means that you can't see his N only signal because the AWUS036H isn't N capable. No doubt the inbuilt adaptor is N capable.

You really need to get one that can pick up b, g and more importantly n which is much faster and usually has more range.

Hello ausred, and welcome to Windows Vista Forums.

First, can you describe the "problems" you are having with your Ethernet card?

Can you post a screen shot of the Ethernet card entry in your "Device Manager"?

It would look like this:

Bear with me as I am a newbie to networking. I got a Netgear WGR614 router and have it hardwired on a Win XP SP2 PC. It is working fine. My other PC is Win98SE and I got a Netgear WG111v2 USB 2.0 adapter for that PC. I had some trouble installing it but finally got it done. My download speed on that PC is about 650K, where my other PC is 1500K. I am using a Broadband modem. What I was wondering is would a Network card make the speed any faster compared to the USB adapter, as my 98SE PC only has 1.1 USB and not 2.0, or is it slower because the PC is just old!...confused...thanks for any insight......Carole

A:Network Card adapter or USB 2.0 adapter?

Well, it's hard to imagine USB being faster than the Ethernet, not to mention that Ethernet is more stable for networking. The slow downloads may just be the machine, the network drivers, or the adapter itself. I only use USB adapters as a temporary measure to test machines.

A:Problems with wireless network adapter and network connection driver

First with this remove Zone alarm, while it use to be a great product, it cause more issues than it's worth these days.
Next, Start menu-> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click on command prompt and run as Administrator.

Type in netsh winsock reset and reboot, see if the combination of these will help.

Otherwise, system restore is very simple to use and will only affect programs installed, not your personal files. If this doesn't solve the issue pick a time before the rootkit, a couple weeks if possible, and just restore it. You can scroll through all the date to make note of any changes that will be made. Make sure to re-install your AV and Malwarebytes afterwards to keep you protected.

Also, I do not work for Malwarebytes, but $29 for a lifetime license and an active protection module is absolutely worth it.

Whenever I take my laptop to school, I can't connect to the wireless network until I reset the network adapter.

When I go back home, it switches to my wireless router without a problem (usually). Sometimes when I change locations while on campus, I have to reset the network adapter again.

I have windows 7 Ultimate installed (was originally installed as a clean install) and have ever since it was RTM. Everything has been running flawlessly and still is except for one thing. My network cards don't show up under Network and Sharing Center, but they do show normally under device manager and my network connection is rock solid. Currenly I'm plugged into a 10/100mb At&t U-Verse Residential Gateway (router). Because of this I can't manage either of my NICs and I can't join my homegroup.

The NICs are intergrated into the motherboard. The NICs are Nvidia nForce adapters.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? Or at least know where I can go to figure this out?

Thank you!!

Our internet service provider updated our internet speed from 100mbps to 1000mbps for no extra cost. We had a Netgear n150 wireless router but it wouldn't support the 1000mbps speed. We were told we needed to upgrade to a r6300 netgear router which is capable of 1000mbps. Now were are told we need to install an ethernet PCI network card or a network adapter. I am told we have to have a 2.0 port for the network adapter to work. It would be cheaper for us to install the internal Ethernet PCI Card, my problem is I don't know which one to buy. I know we need one that is rated 1000mbps, are these universal or will we have to buy one that fits each brand of computer?

I have a linksys usb600n (v2) using the Win7 driver from linksys. It installs and is displayed correctly in Device Manger - BUT it doesn't appear in the Network and Sharing Center as an adapter. This same device and driver were previously working just fine in this system - but I rebuilt the OS (clean install) after testing a number of security products out.

The initial install went fine - no problems that I remember - just plug in the adapter and install the drivers obtained from Linksys (Ver I tried the same thing on the re-build and it looks fine until I go into the Network Center and can't set up wireless networking since the adapter does not appear.

SIW shows TWO (2) linksys USB adapters under Hardware/Network Adapters, but does not show the network adapters in the Network Information section.

Any ideas?

Hi dhartmann. Welcome to Windows Seven Forums!

It would seem that your computer is confused!! I would suggest, while the usb adapter is plugged in, you remove all drivers in "Device manager". Then unplug the usb adapter and reboot the computer. After Windows has loaded, check "Device manager" again for any remnants of usb adapter drivers. If it is clean, plug the adapter in again so that the usb driver can install again but this time with only one instance. That should un-confuse your computer and allow the adapter to appear in network adapters again.

Let us know if this provides a solution or if we need to try something else?

OK,I really hope this forum can help. New system built 2 months ago I was updating my radeon 1950pro's driver and accidentally deleted teh display adapter in device manager. Needless to say at the next reboot I lost the ability to see anything passed the window black welcome scrreen with the lil blu scrolling bar on the bottom. After that all goes black. I can hear in the background that window booted but no image. I also cannot boot in safe mode or s.m. with command prompt. It stops at the loading of the file JGOGO.sys. Any idea how I can reinstall any version of the display adapter?
I'm VERY frustrated.

I have a Belkin wireless G Network Card for Desktop and the software is missing. I'm not sure if its the same for USB but I found if you go to and select the product and the model and click on software and drivers you can find an up to date bundle and download it free. Just make sure it specifies SOFTWARE AND DRIVERS not just drivers and ensure that you select the the bundle that matches your version number.

My dispaly adapter is a Geforce FX 5500 on a XP pro o/s.. After I reinstalled XP (for unrelated reasons) and the NVIDIA drivers, i now lose the adapter settings every time I reboot (computer starts up with a fail-sage generic vga driver). I then rerun the NVIDIA setup, The program says to reboot to use the new settings but rebooting only sends me back to the generic vga driver. However if after running the NVIDIA setup I do not reboot as instructed, the proper driver remains installed and I can set up my display as I want - until I again reboot..

I can't figure this one out

dao: Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling the driver?
Sometimes, you have to disable your Anti-Virus program so it doesn't interfere with the driver installation.
You could also go to the card maker's site to see if they have an updated driver.

Have been cleaning drive with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program and now, with almost all of the malware removed, XP Pro does not display the device manager upon demand, as well as no network adapter present and not able to even open the 'add hardware' icon in the control panel.

I also had run a new driver install for the wireless intel since I had the BSOD for w22n51.sys. It didn't install, saying the driver I had was up to date - I know now to uninstall the driver prior to attempting to update it since it is ver 8 or older. Until I get that done, I can't even display, let alone change anything.

Presently the computer is started in 'diagnostic' startup. Looking for some quick fixes - greatly appreciated!

As the subject's an Acer Aspire One (8.9mini). I assumed it was a power scheme issue. Went to support website which mentions ePower Management (which would override Windows XP power schemes) but that's not installed on this machine. Tried Windows XP power schemes but no option for wireless lan (on or off based on power). Lan light functions the same (solid yellow) when plugged or unplugged. What could be causing problem or where is option to change setting? Thank you!

Check this out:

I pulled this from the link above: "Go into System Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Then go into Network Adapters, right click Atheros Wireless Network Adapter and choose Properties. In properties go to the Advanced tab, click on Power Save Mode and turn it off! No more issues since I turned it off and it even reactivated my wifi! I have not tried/tested the Normal setting yet, but it may also work. Apparently the power save feature of the network card glitches out and you can disable that useless feature."

Good morning

I dont know if anyone can help. I have recently upgraded my Compaq C700 from Vista Home Basic to Vista Business due to several issues with slow processing speed and issues with booting. Vista Businesss seems to be working fine and a vast improvement, however, unfortunately the wireless connection no longer works.

The button on the keyboard remains orange. I have looked under device manager and under networks it is showing two unknown devices. On wireless network search, it is showing on broadband LAN connections and no wireless options. If I click on wireless options, I get the message that the wireless adapter is not installed and configured.

I have downloaded a programme called Driver Robot which claims to note that the wireless adapter is missing and provides the driver. However, this does not seem to install on download.

Any assistance much appreciated.

Hi RAYB871,
Please check if there is any damage on the machine. Check if all the ports on the machine are fine or misaligned. Sometimes if the pins in the USB ports are touching each other, they are known to cause many issues on the machine.
Three components cause this issue, in this order:
Adapter - you have already tested another adapter, so ruled out.
DC Port - the port that holds the adapter in, might be shorted - you would need this part -
Motherboard - I would primarily suspect this part, if the dc port does not fix the issue, then it is the motherboard that has failed and needs to be replaced.
If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call -
Personally, I would suggest, you invest your money on a new machine than to repair this old machine. However, it is your discretion.
Also, please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name and Email) for case records.
Let us know if you have any other queries.

I just today have purchased a playstation 2 network adapter. i stuck it on the ps2 and got it all hooked up. So far all is going well. I shove in the setup disc and am not confused a bit. I put in all the necessary info (dial numbers, isp etc.) but the isp seems to be the problem. I can connect on it, but when it gets done dialing it says "Authentication Failed" I am pretty sure that this has something to do with my msn login (that i previously put on there). I dont know exactly what to put there. i thought it would be my email address. I am using msn 8 as my isp.

For about 5/6 weeks I've been losing connection to the internet. When repairing the problem (4-5x a week, sometimes multiple times a day) it always says it fixed the network adapter. I've called my IS provider and they told me it had to do with the router. I took off the router and I'm still having the problem. I called my IS provider again (weeks later) and they now they say it's the hardware. Is it the hardware? Which hardware? What do I do??

All machines are must be in the same subnet, i.e. 192.168.0.x where x is any number. The subnet mask should be for most small networks.

Turn off any firewalls for debugging. If the firewall is the problem, you'll have to configure it to allow access to "trusted zone" addresses. Note that some firewalls must be completely uninstalled to stop them from affecting your networking.

PING each computer by IP address, and if successful, PING by name. You can obtain the IP address of a computer by opening a command prompt (DOS window) and typing IPCONFIG. This should work for any Windows version.

All computers should be in the same workgroup for computer browsing to function properly. File & Print Sharing has to be enabled on any computer you wish to share files or printers from. You also need to actually share the resource in question from My Computer, right click on the drive/printer/folder, and select sharing.

If you encounter difficulties accessing computers that are visible in Network Neighborhood, make sure the computer being accessed has an account with the same name/password as the system connecting to it uses to login.

While the default NetBIOS setting is correct for normal network configurations, it's possible for it to be altered, and it costs nothing to make sure it's correct. NETBIOS over TCP/IP must be enabled for normal network browsing.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite A660/07T PSAW3A-07T00R (around 3 years old) and I have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.

The problem is that when I finished the installation, it wouldn't connect or be able to find any WIFI's around me. I checked online for solutions regarding the network adapter but there wasn't any that can help. In device manager there wasn't any "Network Adapter" option and when I attempted to plug in the ethernet cable directly, it failed to connect (no notification or anything).

It would always tell me to install a driver for it except I couldn't find any online. The other way was to install using CD but I no longer have that cd.

Wow, somebody still uses a zip drive! I thought mine was great but it fell into disuse as all my PCs started having CD-RW drives and I started networking them and I ended up selling it years ago.

Anyhow, yes use a computer with internet access to download your chipset and networking drivers from the PC (or motherboard) manufacturer's web site and copy them over using your zip drive or other removable media. Install the chipset first. If XP is not already at the SP3 level best to upgrade to that first, as sometimes the latest drivers will not work with earlier than SP2 or 3.

Hi Ullia,
A network adapter is a computer hardware component that connects a computer to a computer network. If you would like to change the settings of a network adapter you can find them by doing the following:
Opening the control panel
Click on 'Hardware and Sound'
Click on 'Device Manager' (under 'devices and printers')
Open the 'Network Adapters' tab
You can then double click on the required adapter and all the settings are there

Happy Computing,

My message: Windows did not detect a properly installed Network Adapter.

My issue: had an electrical storm, all items on a power strip and they all work. All wifi electronics work, I am on comcast internet and they found this issue with the adapter. I am using a windows 7 -64 bit desktop. Problem is, I cannot connect on the desktop to the internet.

I have unplugged all items from it. I shutdown and did some kind of bleed power thing I read from another thread. I have uninstalled the wireless printer that was connected and reinstalled it. I have put in all the recovery disks from my Acer and nothing showed network adapter.

My network adapter is missing to the list in the Device Manager.

What do I do to get this fixed? Any ideas?

A:Network adapter help

I also remember when I first turned on the desk opt after the storm, the printer had been on prior to the storm and when it came back on the wifi was flashing.

I also remember when talking to comcast I had to get my laptop and try the DSL cable from the modem to the laptop. All was working. So I guess it's my desktop or printer. Now I am clueless. Please help.

Hello, I was given a laptop recently as a gift, an HP Pavilion dv7, but only just now sat down to mess with it.  The laptop has been reset and there's apparently not a network adapter installed, because I cannot connect through wired or wireless connection and all of my attempts to find the network adapter has failed (it's not in the device manager for instance).  I'm really not at all knowledgable about this sort of thing.. how do I acquire a network adapter and fix this?  Thank you.

A:No Network Adapter??

Hi, What is your Pavilion dv7 ?  Please use the following instructions to find out the model/product of your machine:

Hi remember me? I had the problem with the infinite reboot cycle. I fixed that by just clearing out my whole hard drive, in other words full restore. But now the problem is, I can't find my LAN in my network connections. The only thing it shows is MSN and I dont use that. I use a router with all wires and I share the internet with me and my dad. Its modem to router to my computer and my dads computer. ALL WIRES NO WIRELESS. So i go to device manager and what do you know? I also cant find my network adapter option in it. SOMEONE HELP!

"Full restore"? I'll assume that means a fresh install of Windows. Download your chipset, networking and any other needed drivers from your PC manufacturer's web site. Install the chipset, then networking and then any others.

HELP I am going out of my mind I have been hacking at this problem for two days and can not figure it out I built a new computer ASUS M A -T and installed windows bit everything was working fine I did not validate the version of windows because I was waiting to replace the g hard drive with a ssd By the time I recieved network adapter the ssd windows validation time had expired I tried to validate the version of windows and I could noy because the network adapter was now gone This is strange because when I first built it it as fine and I was all over the internet via broadband ethernet cable Now the network adapter internet box has a red x and will not recognize the cable and no lights are flashing on the back as well It seems I ned to reinstall the driver so network adapter I used another computer and downloaded the only LAN file from ASUS website and nothing I downloaded any file I could find on the site and none seem to work please how do I get the network adapter back P S there is no network adapter shown in device manager it reads no adapter installed code nbsp

A:network adapter

Have you tried booting into safe mode and then validating? You might need to reinstall windows cleanly on your new SSD and then reinstall everything. Then activate it.

Hi, I have a gx 60 destroyer msi with windows 8.1 on it. I attempted to fix my Ethernet problem by deleting the Ethernet adapter in the network adapter from the device manager however I also clicked delete from my computer so now I cannot use my Ethernet port and in device manager there is a other folder and it has a Ethernet controller with a yellow triangle on it. I would like to use my Ethernet port again because it is faster than wireless how would I fix this issue.

I'm a first time user so I'm probably in the wrong thread for which I apologize!! I have an HP Pavilion 750n with an ASUS motherboard. Under devices I get a "Yellow triangle" next to Network Controller. I believe I need a new driver as it says this device is not working and suggests updating the driver. Unfortunately I can't find a driver anywhere.ASUS site won't let you go to the download area, & HP site doesn't have it. Any suggestions? What I was able to determine was the following: Ethernet 10/100 Lan Supplier Intel Kinnereth. this is probably not enough info, so just let me know what info you need & I will gladly get it. Thanks!!

A:Network Adapter

here is the page for all the drivers that you will need for the system.. keep in mind that asus will more than likely not carry the drivers for the mother board in a third party system kinda like dell drivers for an asus board will not be found on the asus site..
go here and that should clean up the driver issue..good luck mate

I posted this in the Networking Forum several days ago with no response so am trying here Our Dell XPS Vista laptop is down and out nbsp The other day it started adapter network running very slowly so I ran Safe Mode diagnostics and disk check etc nbsp but to no avail nbsp I finally realized it wouldn t connect to the internet for online diagnostics troubleshooting etc nbsp The disk check showed an error on the disk it couldn t repair nbsp I eventually found my way to the Device Manager network adapter window and it shows several yellow exclamation icons nbsp At least one has been there for years Tun Miniport network adapter Adapter which apparently affects its inability to scroll via the touchpad nbsp That s no big deal and no one has been able to fix that But the big problem now appears to be the faulty Network Adapter isatap network adapter nbsp I think this may be the real issue nbsp If I understand it this is a piece of hardware nbsp A card in the computer that facilitates wireless connecting nbsp We just switched from DSL to FiOS a couple of weeks ago but though I stumbled through some of the network setting up the laptop seemed to work okay until a few days ago nbsp I tried to print a screenshot of the Device Manager but can t get the printer driver to load even USB d directly to the printer it used to WiFi or bluetooth to nbsp There may be other issues beyond the isatap Fortunately we have an iPad and a new Windows Netbook to communicate with nbsp Is there a software fix for the isatap issue nbsp I theoretically could download software via the netbook load to a thumbdrive and then thumbdrive to the XPS Or is this an issue for a repair shop

More likely, either that driver file or its registry entry resides in the bad sector that the error test turned up - your hard drive is failing.  Replace the drive and reload the OS and you should be all set.

Hi everyone!

So I'll get straight to the point. Through a very sketchy download from a friend, I had attracted a virus that redirected me to a different site everytime I tried to browse... Therefore, I reformatted my computer (reinstalled the OS). But little did I know, my computer was missing so may drivers. Well, currently my computer can not go onto the internet via wireless but only through ethernet cable. I installed the Windows 7 Win32 Network Adapter Driver but still I can not connect to the internet via wireless. Help?

my network adapter is not working right

Relevancy 42.57%

I have a Sony Vaio VGN FE890 laptop, with windows vista, 2038 mb ram, intel core 2 cpu [email protected] 1.83 gh. I was in bed last week and we had a thunderstorm and lightning hit my phone line. I have AT&T internet dsl. I called them because I thought my modem was messed up. I have another windows 98 computer that I did manager to get connected to the internet through my modem. Now my question is why can I not get my laptop to connect to the internet. I go to control panel and look at hardware manager and it says my network adapter is working fine. How do I find out what my problem is? I have a little bit of knowledge about computers, just enough to be dangerous.

A:network adapter

Usually "lightning hit my phone line" means at least one ethernet adapter or answering machine is fried.

What is the brand and model of your modem?

After connecting the Vista with a known working cable and power cycling the modem please show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:


[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

After a virus forced me to reformat i used my friends Compaq boot disk thinking it was the same thing. Xp installed fine but never recognized my network adapter so its a ***** to get any drivers . The drivers that i have tried have failed or mabey its just me. Its a epox series9npa nforce 4 ultra mobo thier website is down since they went out of business and its kinda vague on what driver i need for the net adapter. Mabey i just need to use a reg boot disk,im not sure. Also i updated to service pack three thinking some basic driver would recognize it or something but no go . and isent the network adapter driver supposed to come basic? do they leave it out for retail?

A:No network adapter

Hello & welcome to TSF,

Windows does come with some basic drivers but not all of them !!

they mainly deal with the system (as in operating software

now they do get some from the name brand companies like (Intel / AMD / Via / Nvidia

but most of them you have to search them out at sites that carry the old drivers for mobo's like yours

or you can get them from places like (driveragent ) but your system has to be up & running & they also charge you for them

I wll see if i can find the one you need

but i seggust that you get this program ( its free) so that you can find all the divers for your system & download them and then put them to disk for those unexspected issues

follow link (

I will lok and see what i can find for you
