Update Disabling Intel Wifi Adapter


I recently purchased a vaio laptop for the widi capabilities. Out of the box it worked as advertised, but after a round of various updates from microsoft and sony, the widi becomes disabled. The message that appears is: my intel wifi technology disabled, please restart your computer. Another message that appears is: my intel wifi technology: adapter not found. I've poured over all the vendor community postings (intel, netgear, sony) regarding this issue but no one seems to have come up with a solution.

The only method for recovery is to do a complete system restore which puts everything back to factory settings. Once i do that, it works for a little bit until the updates download again. I've tried turning off the auto updates and i've ensured that all the latest drivers were installed (even after doing a complete system restore) but nothing seems to prevent the adapter from becoming disabled. I don't have any issues with the wifi, only the widi. This issue seems to be affecting all brands with widi capabilities. I'm not sure if it's affecting only intel i5s or both i5s and i7s. Any one have any other suggestions?

Problem With Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter Driver

Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter has a problem with driver. Reinstall driver, not fixed. Windows 7 home premium 64. New acer 5532 trying to connect to a wireless hp 1022nw. Wireless internet was set up without a hitch. Other computers connect are xp and no problem exists. Wondering if this is really a driver issue or compatibility / hardware issue. One of the automatic responses also stated the driver was reinstalled and did not fix the issue. Windows update stated to never install drivers (?) And issue was not present. A secondary and possible related problem stated in trouble shoot was "problem with pnp devices, detected.

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.

Update Blocks Wifi Connection

So i bought a brand new computer with windows 7, bought a new wireless adapter (netgear wna1000) downloaded the newest available windows 7 compatible drives from a friends computer and hey i can connect. I turn my computer off after updating windows and now my wireless connection has "limited connectivity" which means that i can't use my network. The only answer i've found to this on my own and after countless hours on the phone with netgear and geek squad is to run a system restore back before the updates are installed and never turn off my computer. I know this isn't good for it. Does anyone have any solutions? Oh i'm running on a wep connection.

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?

Disabling Hotkeys

In any application, simply typing a single letter is interrupting the program and inserting unwanted functions. Example: in typing the word application, the computer shifts to italics, as seen here. Striking an "o" creates an "open" dialogue box, the letter "e" opens the search engine field and drop-down, an "h" interrupts the screen with history sidebar. The most annoying of all is that whenever a "t" is hit-a new tab opens in the browser no matter what i am doing.

This is cross-application, occurring in word, excel, photoshop, dream weaver, and both ie and firefox browsers. This is so bad that i have switched to a different computer just to type a simple word document. I am not touching or toggling any control keys simultaneously and have been unsuccessful in finding out how to disable this feature in the home premium edition of win 7.

Disabling Mouse Hover

I can't seem to disable the mouse hover feature. The hover feature is active and selects items i don't want to be activated. A program i was installing asked to install third party software but before i could select no the mouse was hover over yes and installed the the third part software. I was also uninstalling all the unwanted software that came with my new computer and it selected a program to uninstall that runs my media. I can't disable it. I've tried folder options, mouse options, and ease of access with no luck. The disable feature doesn't exist.

Aero Is Automatically Disabling With 4 Monitors

Should be able to run anything, no sweat. But when i try to hook up 4 monitors windows aero automatically disables with the error message: "the color scheme has been changed to windows basic - the current color scheme has exceeded its allowed memory so the color scheme has been automatically changed to improve performance. "

How do i allocate more memory?
How do i stop it auto disabling?

I don't want to be told that it's because my graphics cards arn't good enough cause aero works fine on them independently. Here's my machine:

I7 920
Geforce gtx 275
Geforce gt9800
12gb ddr3

Disabling All Popup Features Of Taskbar

Setting the properties of the taskbar seems very cumbersome. I have tried for several hours to turn off all features of aero. I have use the right click/properties feature of the taskbar and deselected aero, and i still continued to get balloons, popups and the list of open applications. (As an aside, it took over an hour to discover that i needed to reinstall a manufacturers' video driver before i could turn aero off). I then went to the control panel, personalization, and taskbar, which brought up the same panel as before. I then used the local group policy editor, and turned all balloon notifications and thumbnails.

There was another utility, which i can't recall now, where there was another aero check box that was still checked, even though i had deselected the option from the taskbar. I then chose to go to windows classic view under personalization. Although i have been able to suppress thumbnail vies, i still haven't found a way to turn off the hover-over lists.

This is a significant intrusion into my work flow. I often work with 10 or more items open on the task bar. When the list gets long, it causes these lists to fill the screen. Since i set the taskbar to hold several lines of icons, this means that every time the cursor passes from one line to another, it causes several of these lists to appear. They interfere directly with my access to my applications, as i have to navigate around them to make them go away. I have absolutely no use for this feature, and would really like a more strait forward way to turn it off.

As another tip, since we are now on windows 7, how about a utility to identify and define the parts of windows (a "what's this" function). Some of my time was spent finding the names of feature so i could make the queries and search help files in the first place.

Webcam And Wifi Not Working

I just bought my msi laptop about two months ago. I'm not techie and i'm not good in troubleshooting. My webcam was working fine not until it shows that the device cannot be found. I tried uninstalling/installing the drivers but it will not work. As i tried installing it, it will no longer show in the installed products/programs in the program and features.

My problem with my wifi started when i first started using a broadband stick. I tried searching for a connection but it will only show the broadband stick even if it was not inserted.

Atheros 5007 Wifi Driver

I need a driver that will work on windows 7 x64. I tried all the ones on google. Even tried the toshiba driver for 2010. The xp driver nor the toshiba win 7 driver do not install, no matter what. I have the vista . Inf but it's not an exe. If someone knows where to put the inf files i can do it. This thing has been a pain in the butt since i bought it. I used it on vista, with a major headache to get it working. Why is atheros so difficult? Forcing us to use european drivers.

I had a broadcom wifi pci card & that installed no problem. I needed to take it out for my mom to use, but that left me with no wireless option now. I mean i can just boot to my xp drive but then you don't have the direct x 11 & the video card isn't as awesome because it wasn't made for xp. I may be wrong on the "ag", the print wore off & i think that's what it was.

Bsod From Wakeup When Wifi Turned Off

I've been getting the bsod other people have, but mine has a definite cause. It will only happen on wake-up from sleep/hibernate (not sure about power-up) when the wifi is turned off. I have a laptop, so there's a little button you can slide left or right to turn the wifi on or off. If the wifi is turned off, but i manage to switch it on before the login screen comes up, i'm ok. But if i forget or i'm too late turning it on, the bsod appears.

I have an hp pavilion dv2610us with windows 7 pro x64. I ran the 64 bit version of the release candidate, which had the exact same problem. I thought it would get fixed with the final version, but i guess not. Is the fix for this a certain wifi driver? If so, anyone know which one?

Net Security Key Wifi Connection

With brand new laptop  with windows 7 i can not connect to home net(via router d-link). Other laptops (with xp) after configurations were connected with internet without any problem. Now to connect  to the net i am asked to type in the "net security key" and i do not know where to find  it. Before. i.e with others laptops i was not asked for any key. I am mad, i lost already the whole day trying what i was able to do-with no result.

I am a simple user, not a programmer and i expected easy work with new laptop. From the answers i found in the forum i understand very little as the advices seems to be addressed to the people much more advanced in cs than me.

Win 7 Recreates Deleted Wifi Profiles

I'm running windows 7 64 bit. I have two wireless routers. My wireless n router a linksys wag160n is the default router with wpa2 enabled. I have a wireless n dongle. The room the computer is in appears to be on the end of the range and keeps loosing connection, however when i implemented a netgear 802. 11g router, it can connect to this quite happily. The problem is that windows 7 insists on reconnecting to the linksys every time it finds it.

I moved the profile down the list in the network wifi management console and windows 7 keeps bumping it back to the top. I deleted the profile and windows recreated it. I tried putting dummy settings in and windows 7 rewrites it. I tried renaming it and windows leaves the renamed profile in place and creates the old one again.

The only way i can now think round this is to change the ssid on the linksys and change all the pcs that connect to it successfully. I'm also thinking of scrapping the linksys as it doesn't perform as well as an older router and it keeps dropping the adls link. I don't want to use the netgear for security reasons. Any advice before i throw the linksys away?

Cannot Install Belkin Usb Wifi Drivers

I have recently purchased a belkin surf+ b300 f7d2101ed and i'm not able to install it on my windows 7 (32bit) pro system. I've only just installed windows 7 so its a fresh installation.
I install the software included and i keep getting a pop up balloon saying that the driver has not installed properly.

I have tried going into the device manager and the device is listed under network controllers, but not but not as the device name but "connect usb wireless" (or something along those lines).
I have then tried to manually update the driver and specifying the cd drive to look for driver. It sees the driver, attempts to install it and then i get a screen saying that the driver did not install properly as it could not find the file specified.

I have also tried downloading the latest install program from the belkin website, but still cannot get the device to work. Does anyone know how i install this device?
