microsoft 4to6 adapter RRS feed

  • Question

  • is there a real fix to this?  I have this showing up in device manager and it is definately disabling wireless!  I have over 400 netbooks that could get affected, so this is serious and urgent.   I can't get it out of device manager and disabling it does not work.  I am sure a windows update put it there and I would like to know which one please?

  • Just roll back the Driver.

  • Roll back driver is greyed out, probably because there is an exclamation mark on the device....what else can i do.  I downloaded a hotfix for this and even that did not work.

  • There must be someone who knows why this microsoft 4to6 adapter is in my device manager, has an exclamation mark and has disabled my wireless???  Please,  I have read just about everything and followed the instructions posted by Microsoft and applied the hotfix....it is not working.

  • i need help hear someone.  I just found a microsoft windows update installed a driver for an intel pro wireless adapter on my netbook on February 11.  This is the problem and it will not let me remove the damn thing from device manager.......This is Microsofts fault and someone should be getting on this before 400 netbooks get these windows updates!!!!!!!!

  • Uninstall your wireless in Device Manager and put a check in the box, Delete the driver software for this device.

  • For the 6to4 adapters :

    Control Panel - Device Manager - Right Click on both - UNINSTALL  - REBOOT

    Nothing else to do, Windows will do the rest. And you can ignore the errors altogether if you wish and on some computers it will always be there but cause no problems.

    On a Windows Vista-based computer or on a Windows Server 2008-based computer, the
    Microsoft ISATAP adapter appears with a yellow exclamation mark next to it in Device
    Manager, and you also receive an error message.
