Broadcom Management Programs

The windows 7 upgrade advisor tells me that it doesn't have compatibility info on something called broadcom management programs. I am currently running vista. I cannot find anything in my program files by this name. I do have broadc om control suite 2. I've searched broadcom's site but don't get any info about broadcom management programs. Nyone have a clue what the broadcom management programs software does? What would happen if i installed windows 7? I don't really wanna break my computer for a new os.

Network Adapter Issues

I have windows 7 x86, and i upgraded from vista about a year ago. Now, recently i've been having issues with my wireless adapter. It's a netgear wpn111 v2. The connection notification in the corner displays a disconnected icon. Any attempts to reinstall the driver software fail, telling that the drivers can't be loaded, or that the latest drivers are already installed (which they aren't, i know). Any attempts to update the driver will disable it, saying that the drivers aren't there or there was an error.

In addition to this, i can not even get into my advanced network adapter settings to edit any of them, and it seems that anything that calls for the network adapter settings will not open. No error, or anything. I just click it and nothing happens. Now i'm online with this computer, but any fiddling with the netgear settings will force me to a state where i have to system restore if i want to get online again. So far the only thing i haven't tried are a full windows 7 reinstall. I really do not want to do that. So can anyone help me out here? I'm getting kind of desperate, and these errors are preventing me from using any vpn services.

Network Adapter Alias

How can i create the equivalent of a linux ethernet alias in windows 7?I have a single physical adapter which needs to be bound to two different subnets with different default routes. 172. 16. 2. 10 gw 172. 16. 2. 1 metric 100172. 16. 15. 10 gw 172. 16. 15. 1 metric 200i have some software that can specifically use one adapter or another so most applications can use the lower metric gateway while letting that software use the specific interface with the higher metric. I cannot figure out how to alias a physical adapter in windows, how can i do that?

Compatible Network Adapter

Last week i went out and bought a hp pavilion desktop model # p6203w with windows 7. We have one computer wired to our dsl and a linksys wireless g broadband router model # wrt54g. My problem is the belkin wireless adapter i bought didn't work. Call hp customer service and they told me that the belkin adapter wasn't compatible with windows 7. I took the belkin back to the store and looked at the other adapters. None of them are compatible with windows 7.

I have a toshiba satellite laptop that works fine with the router so i don't want to replace the router. What i need to know is what brand and model # adapter i need to buy to get my desktop up and running? I have checked the device manager and it offers dial up and broadband but not wireless.

Wireless Network Adapter Gone Missing

After resuming from a sleep, the network adapter disappeared. This happened before and they replaced the computer, after trying a system restore and then full recovery. Apparently, it's not the computer. The wireless adapter is missing from device manager, much less the network and connections area. In troubleshoot, the computer simply says a network cable needs to be plugged in. There is no wireless choice under network connections. There is no wireless adapter tab upon right click of network adapter in device manager.

The realtek wlan driver does appear in the programs & features list. I uninstalled, reinstalled, and also found/installed a patch for the driver. This did not work. I also started/automated the autoconfig scripts for wireless. Nothing works.

Wireless Network Adapter Compatibility

As stated matter above, i would to have a professional guidance on what should i do. First of all, i currently using the windows 7 which just installed on my acer aspire 4736z (laptop) about a month ago. My wireless connection to the belkin router previously work just fine until recently i decided to change to the new d-link dsl-2640t wireless router. The troubleshooting window kept on bugging me to reset the router. I followed all the instructions, but to no avail nothing changed.

I tried to download some of the wireless network drivers to replace the current wireless network adapter (atheros ar5b93 wireless network) but again nothing changed. Surprisingly, i did succeed to access the internet using the cat 5e ethernet cable which connected point-to-point from the wireless router to the laptop. So here, i suspected there is something wrong with the wireless network adapter.

All the downloaded folders failed to take effect on the current settings. The recommended solution by windows is either to reset network adapter or access point. Is it have anything to do with the compatibility of the wireless network adapter with the dsl-2640t wireless router or any other issues?

Problems With Usb Wireless Network Adapter

Have purchased new hp desktop with windows 7 home premium. Have tried using d-link dwa-160 (reva) usb wireless adapter. Used latest updated software from d-link site (may be for vista 64 os as win 7 not listed). Wireless adapter works for short time and then loses connection. Have used win 7 wizard to fix problem. Indicates that driver for usb may not correct driver. Still disconnects throughout the day. Have un-installed software.

Deleted driver for dwa-160. Re-started computer with clean start. Plug usb adapter in and windows 7 does not even recognize that a usb device is connected. Have tried to "add a device" and win 7 still does not recognize that anything is connected to usb. Hp amd win 7 x64. Any help?

Updates Disable Usb Network Adapter

I recently installed windows 7 pro x64, at first everything worked fine however after running windows update my network adapter stopped functioning.network connections in the control panel no longer lists my adapter but the device manager tells me that everything is working properly. The icon by the clock detects neither any wi-fi networks or even the adapter. I have tried this with two different ones a rosewill and a zonet with the same results. Does anyone know if this is a specific update problem or is it a device driver problem?

Network Issue With Intel 82567lm Adapter

We have several dell latitude e4200/4300 laptops that run windows 7 and have the intel 82567lm nic installed. We have a major issue with them when attached to our domain, windows 2003 active directory, in that they loose network connectivity in certain circumstances. When they are not members of the domain this does not happen. We receive no error messages, the cards just stop working. I'm not sure if this is the nic driver failing or a windows component.

Network Adapter Installed In Vista But Not In Win7

I have a new gateway desktop with windows 7 that i am trying to connect to my in-home wireless network. I bought a linksys wireless g usb adapter. When i run through the installation procedure, i am told that the computer recognizes the adapter but one step later i get an error 211 saying that the adapter was not installed properly. I removed the adapter, inserted it in a different usb port and reran the installation setup. Same result.

I spent about an hour last night with a linksys techie on a live chat. She suggested i try installing the adapter on my desktop that runs vista. It installed perfectly. The problem thus would seem to be with windows 7. Any thoughts?

Wireless And Lan Network Adapter Icon Disappeared

I have an acer aspire 8920g running windows 7 ultimate having updated frm windows vista 32-bit. My problem is that for some reason my network adapters, both wireless and the lan ports don't show up in the area they used to, and also both of the drivers i had in my network adapter section in the device manger had a yellow question mark over them which means the device is not working properly because windows cant load the required driver.

This meant i couldn't load the internet, through using another pc i managed to reinstall and update one of my devices/drivers (intel wireless wifi link 4695agn) but my other one (atheros ar8121/ar8113/ar8114 pci-e ethernet controller) hasn't stopped having this error (code 31 error) even though ive downloaded the latest drivers from the atheros website which means i still cannot use my lan ports. Does anyone have any idea what may have happened?

Asus Usb-n13 Network Adapter Problem

I'm running windows 7 32bit with a msi ms-7698 motherboard. I'm trying to install the drivers for an asus usb-n13 network adapter. I have no cd drive so i've downloaded the drivers from the asus site. When i run the setup file for the driver it says it can only be ran on windows 7 (which is what i'm using). I've also tried using device manager to manually select the driver and install but that doesn't work either. I've also installed the "asus wlan control center" thinking there would be an option to install drivers through that. But when i try to run it it says that it will run once the network adapter is plugged in, which it is. Under "devices and printers" it shows my adapter as "unspecified" so my pc is recognizing that it is plugged in.

Linksys Wireless-g Usb Network Adapter Update Fails

I recently installed windows 7 on my pc that was previously running xp. Ever since installation i've had issues with my wireless adapter. Whenever my pc is shutdown, restarted, or left to sleep for extended periods the network monitor in the tray displays that there are no connections available (as if the system doesn't recognize the adapter).

I have been uninstalling/reinstalling the driver from the disk every time this happens. Also, the update mentioned in the title fails to install. Would this update fix my problem and how do i fix it?

Rt73 Driver Problem With Adapter

I have a dynex wgusb wireless card. It has never given me a problem before except when windows automatically gave me an ralink rt73 driver. After the driver i couldn't connect to the internet at all, my wireless card wasn't turning on, searching for signal or anything. After i rolled back my drivers to the dynex usb drivers i get internet but my router resets every 8 hours. After the router resets, my computer doesn't reconnect and i have to manually reconnect it but it doesn't connect like it should, i have to troubleshoot every time for it to connect with a persistent "problem with wireless adapter or access point" notification. I want to know how to either get the newer drivers to work, or fix the drivers i have now to never have to troubleshoot to connect.

Graphics Adapter Driver For Gateway 7330gz

My mom recently had a virus on her gateway 7330gz laptop and couldn't find her gateway os cd, so we bought and installed windows 7 professional 32bit. The installation went without a hitch, installed all the drivers, had to get older windows xp audio drivers as explained in this thread but other than that, not bad at all and runs pretty smooth. The only problem is, windows 7 installed the default graphics adapter driver and i can't find a real driver for my video adapter. I'm able to run at my laptop's native resolution, but there is no video hardware acceleration or anything like that, so even playing spider solitaire is near impossible and viewing youtube videos at fullscreen results in laggy viewing.

I've run intel's driver finder program and it says that i have a driver installed for it but the best one isn't supported by windows 7. And gateway's drivers for the 7330gz are from 2004 and are only for xp. I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for me, or if anyone knows of a workaround or a current driver that would support my system.

Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter Has A Driver Problem

Message 1. "Device driver software was not successfully installed" - x failed message 2. "Troubleshooting has completed" - "microsoft teredo tunneling adapter has a driver problem". My first time here. Perhaps i can learn something. Well, message 1. -  I got when i attempted to update the driver for the same adapter. I then got message 2 after attempting to troubleshoot the problem. I initially had issues with the netgear infamous adapter wg111v2, which i couldn't get to work, uninstall or work or install.

Crazy. Well i reinstalled win7, plugged it in, and the software downloaded immediately and the adapter seemed to be working fine (for the first time since win7 installation), based on the bottom right hand icon's confirmation. Until i removed the network cable. Now it doesn't work despite apparent software confirmation.

No browser loads, only with a cable. My search online seems to suggest that it is down to this tunneling adapter. It seems to be at fault. I know for sure that it's not the router as i have wifi on my hd2 from it, and win7 tells me that the adapter is working. So my question is does win7 just not accept netgear's adapter or is it the teredo tunneling adapter's fault. Oh my router is dg834gv3.

Linksys Wmp300n Wireless Adapter Driver Issue

Windows overwriting linksys wmp300n wireless adapter driver with broadcom 802. 11n network adapter driver. After installing drivers for a linksys wmp300n pci wireless adapter, windows is automatically overwriting it with newer broadcom 802. 11n network adapter drivers (that cause it to not work). How can i install the appropriate drivers and prevent windows from changing them?

I tried using gpedit. Msc to prevent automatic installation of drivers, but then that prevented me from installing the real drivers as well. Can i make a policy that would just prevent the broadcom driver from installing?
