windows 7 ultimate

I asked my Uncle whos a Computer Tech and Network Manager for big Lawfirms here what those two things were and he said they were just ports that connect to other equiptment that we don't have. so nothing is really in those two ports that say they don't have drivers. therefore there is not a number on anything..

I allready updated the chipset and everything.. scouring the intel sight for a driver to run it.. but still it won't connect on start up .. i allways have to disable the driver and then reinable it.. then it starts working and stays working. it never goes out unless we turn off the computer again

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I have seen a few people have these issues. Each time it has been related to a connectivity issue with the network.
When the system starts to disconnect it seems to recognize the local adapter and the network itself as 2 seperate entities.
The was I have resolved this for them is a complete network rebuild. Trash the network and remove the adapter from the machine completely.
Rebuild the network and then re-install the adapter and point it at the network also if you have not already done so look for any interfering devices (Wireless phones, microwaves)

Sorry if you have tried all of this and I am just repeating your own steps I am just providing my own experiences.

Also if it works fine after restarting the adapter.. Check it is not running on a service and if it is try setting the service to delayed start to give the system time to aquire a connection before launching the wireless service.

When I went to my MB site, all they had was the onboard sound and RAID drivers.
Intel has the .inf file for the chipset, but this is not a driver as they point out. So it seems the only available driver is thru Win 7[?]

windows 7 ultimate

I mentioned my board and specs in the first post. go to the first page. I wonder if i go into windows 7 and click on the public network that automatically blocks most things in the firewall. if i go to that and say combine that network with the one that shows my home network. i wonder if i do that if the problem will go away. i think i will try it and let you guys know how it goes.

Windows 7 X64 Home Premium VHD / Ubuntu 9.10

There's a windows service, "##Id_String1.6844f930_1628_4223_b5cc_5bb94b879762##" from Apple Computer, INC.
I have no idea how it got on my machine, but it's part of the mdns bonjour package from apple.
*something* I use regularly bundles it, because I have no quicktime, no safari, no itunes, no apple crap at all.
(Well, maybe klite's got the quicktime codec files, but I looked and klite doesn't bundle bonjour.)

Anyway, long story short: the fix.

Click the start button, type in services.msc and hit enter.
Find that service name, right click on it and say properties.
Click the Stop button, then use the pulldown to switch to "Disabled" startup.
This will disable the mdnsresponder.exe which sets a gateway address of resulting in that second spurious "Unidentified Network" that f--ks everything up.

Restart your network adapter once more to kickstart it, and it should be golden from then on, hopefully. (Worked for me, YMMV)
