Windows 7: Ethernet Controller - PCI bus 4 (Code 28)

Ethernet Controller - PCI bus 4 (Code 28)

Hello,

I've bought a TP-Link USB Wireless Adapter (Model: TL-WN722N) and I can't seem to make it work.

I have updated every driver on the pc except that Ethernet Controller - PCI bus 4, that i can't seem to figure out what it is.

At this point I'm not even sure what the problem really is, because i can get connection by ethernet cable on the desktop and i can make the Adapter to work on my Laptop.

A friend told me that apparently my PC already had a wireless adapter i just needed the antena, so i used one of his and still nothing.

Maybe something is in conflict, i don't know.

I saw on another thread that this might help:

-Other Devices
---Ethernet Controller
-----Details: Device Instance Path:
-------PCI\VEN_168C&DEV_001C&SUBSYS_1033147B&REV_01\4&132A9A3C&0&00E3

Thank you all in advance.

Is that the PC with the "Other Device" info you showed at bottom of your post?

What's the make/model of the computer or motherboard with the "Ethernet Controller" problem you mention? On that specific machine:
List any Problem devices
  • Make sure devices are connected and powered on
  • Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
  • Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
  • If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
  • On the other hand, if no devices are listed, tell me so
Generate and attach a DirectX report
  • Click Start->Run, enter dxdiag and click OK
    ===> If you’re running 32 bit Windows, dxdiag will launch on its own
    ===> If you’re running 64 bit Windows, you’ll see 64-bit DxDiag. Click it to launch the 64-bit version of dxdiag
  • Notice progress in lower left window corner
  • When done, click Save Information button and save as a text file to your Desktop
  • Click the Upload a File button to upload and attach the file to your next post
