Windows 7: All network adapters have no properties.

All network adapters have no properties.

Today, I turned on my secondary laptop (which hasn't been used in months) was greeted with a start up error which ended up needing to repair the "SYSTEM" boot partition . Now I got the system running but can't get any adapters to work. When I first logged in every network adapter had code 31(could not load driver). I was able to get around that by manually uninstalling each on and letting it re-install. Now each adapter has no properties so there is no internet connection at all. I mentioned the start up problem because I am not sure if the two are related at all.


Any help would be appreciated!

Hi ben,

Did you install an updated version of the driver or the same one ? What is the exact model of the laptop


To get the model number enter this command

Thanks for the reply, I just let Windows install the driver itself so it would be the same driver it had before. It is an HP G6 with Realtek Ethernet and Atheros WiFi. Keep in mind that this error came up for everything under the network adapters: Vmware Ethernet drivers, HotSpot Shield drivers and a USB Realtek WiFi card.

I would think about using system restore to return your system files to the functional state they were in before the problem occurred.

Running the sfc/scannow command would also be a good idea.

Great! I did not even think of that, I was able to get it working again by restoring. I'm not sure what would have caused that, maybe missing files? Luckily the restore wasn't too long ago.

Thanks chev65!

You are quite welcome.

Yes it's just the system files getting corrupted like they tend to do sometimes.

The system restore only returns the system files to how they were before the problem occurred which comes in very handy on occasion.
