Network map

Been messing with my Network now my main base cannot create a Network map.



Well I'm scratching my head about this adapter, what is it and what to connect and enable,

My Router is connected to the internet, my PC is connected, my laptop is connected.

When I create the Network map on my laptop, no problem.

Any help appreciated.

Incidently my Wireless is the mains plugs type.

Usually when I use the map I start from the Network and Sharing center, it looks like you are trying to do it from the control panel?

Just been to my PC upstairs, connected to internet, went into NET/SHARING and map came up OK,

I just don't know what the adapter is, that they keep referring to.

I believe that is referring to a realtek PCIe network adaptor in the PCI bus 2 slot on your computer.

I know, but it shows its working correctly with the up to date drivers.

So what other adapter are they referring to.?

It's probably one that isn't being used. Like if you are using the wireless adaptor there is still the other wired network adaptor which isn't being used.
