Windows 7: Microsoft 6 to 4 adapters & ISATAP adapters

24 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Microsoft 6 to 4 adapters & ISATAP adapters

Okay, so I recently uninstalled all of my wireless network devices, these were a simple Wireless Card which was in a PCI slot and a wireless USB adapter, I uninstalled them from the device manager, and now under "Network Devices" I have about 32 'Microsoft 6to4 adapters' all with the yellow triangle on them, and then also there are 2 Microsoft ISATAP adapters, again with the yellow triangles.

Basically, what has happened and what can I do to resolve this!?

Oh also, when I click on them, they say "This device cannot be started (error code:10)"

And also now, my fast ethernet port has a yellow triangle on it too, but windows cannot find a driver.

Thank you very much,

What flavor are your Lan cards. I never used wireless but found multiple 6to4 and Isatap adapters in my device tree. It was solved by updating my Lan card drivers and deleteing the entries from the device tree. With a new driver I only had entries for each port. (dual Lan card)
