My reply will be in two parts, Post #3 first and then Post #9 in Part 2:

Part 1.

Did you or didn't you update it? This part says you didn't In Part 2 it sounds like you did.

From what I've seen that's understandable.

An "almost identical name or version number" Is like horseshoe pitchin' "Close don't count".

We're working on that.

What do you mean by "before Microsoft got access to my computer"?

Built icons or refreshing to what your normally accustom to just means that another Service has interrupted the loading process and when all the Services are finished loading you will be presented with your Desktop.

Not sure about this one, do you remember what you did a couple of days ago?

It sounds like you missed a request from norton on whether or not you wanted norton to control the firewall when you installed norton.

Did you search here? http:// Drivers and Downloads Identify your product | www.dell.com Click on Detect Product, let it scan your machine and see what Dell has to offer. If they aren't offering, you don't need it.

I agree, in searching both this and the Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller on this site (and I only found the realtek by looking in the MTB results log): http://Windows Compatibility Center | www.microsoft.com, I found "no results".

Links, Links! We need to know where you searched for verification! If you let Dell scan your machine and they come up with wireless adapter drivers, post the link!
Note   Note
I'll try to help you update your network adapter if that's what you really want, but then what we need from you in turn, is to run and follow the instructions to fill in your System Specs: System Info - See Your System Specs We can't help you if you want to keep everything a secret!
I still don't believe this is an adapter problem because I found this in your MTB results:

Name: Norton Identity Safe Settings Manager
Description: Norton Identity Safe Settings Manager
Class Guid: {8ECC055D-047F-11D1-A537-0000F8753ED1}
Manufacturer:
Service: ccSet_NST
Problem: : This device is not present, is not working properly, or does not have all its drivers installed. (Code 24)
Resolution: The device is installed incorrectly. The problem could be a hardware failure, or a new driver might be needed.
Devices stay in this state if they have been prepared for removal.
After you remove the device, this error disappears.Remove the device, and this error should be resolved.
This tells me that norton was installed once, maybe re-installed, if it was, it was never completely cleaned from your machine before you attempted the second or subsequent re-install(s).

This is definitely a bad thing, its not your fault, its norton's; They should be held responsible on how their programs work and if they need a complete uninstall before the user can reinstall their product they should build that feature into their product.

Download the Norton Removal Tool from here: www.norton.com/nrt

By the way, what version of norton do you have? If you want to know how to shut norton down so it doesn't interfere, I need to know the version and if it's one or more programs.

I realize there is a lot here and we're going to have to clean up a lot of confusion before we can proceed. Try to answer any questions I have in part 1 and keep them separate from answers for part 2.

Does it not say that this list is drivers? It doesn't say if this is your adapter click it to download your driver. It calls them drivers specifically.

I've attached my device man. showing what adapter I have. And the Dell site gave me these choices. Is the driver there or not?

Yes there are eight categories of drivers. The reason it doesn't hand you the specific driver is there are different permutations within your machine's (n5040 ) class.
Out of the ten's to hundreds of thousands of n5040's produced some undoubtedly had:
  • More or less memory than yours.
  • A bigger or smaller HDD.
  • Wifi or no wifi.
  • A different chipset.
  • A different optical drive.
  • Different networking capabilities.
The auto-detect is good but with these variables it can't possibly give you the exact one, only the range that was installed before it left the building, and that doesn't include any changes made by the re-sellers once they got their hands on the machine.


I see the link, but where's the attachment??

If you're going to send one like this don't bother.

We need you to right click on your adapter, click on properties then the Driver tab, this is what we need to see.

Very Slow Network Identification and Connection-n50401.jpg

We need to see the Driver Provider, Date, and Version.

Did you run a utility to fix the problem or did you allow a Microsoft customer service agent to remotely control your machine to fix the Media Player problem?

"If you're going to send one like this don't bother."

Maybe I should have someone with a little patience help me here. And maybe you could take a sensitivity class that might explain to you that people come to this forum for help with computer problems that they don't understand. We aren't as knowledgeable in this subject as you are.

"What do you mean by "before Microsoft got access to my computer"?"
"I had Microsoft fix my Windows Media Player problem"

Since there is no physical location to get help from Microsoft, the only conclusion that can be drawn from the following two statements is remote access.

Please ask someone else to help me with this problem.

Almost every comment Anak wrote in #11 indicate that this person(male/female, I can't tell) doesn't understand the statement that he/she is questioning.

This might be the source of our issues here. Or it could be their impatience with someone less knowledgeable than themselves.
