Windows 7: Network Discovery won't stay ticked

I definitely have no interest in repeating this drill.

Is the 6to4 adapter I need to replace?

I believe the network driver for which ever adaptor this is needs an update is all.

The 6 to 4 adaptor is handled by Windows but isn't the actual problem.

This drill is a pain I agree, third time in the last two weeks.

So last night I began physically uninstalling all of the 362 instances of the 6to4 adapter and managed to get about half of them before I had to give it up for the evening. This morning I turned on the laptop, broght up the device manager and prepared once again to enter the fray and to my surprise and disbelief, they were all gone and the network issue had resolved itself.

Could this have really happened or have I become delusional?

I figured the problem would resolve itself once the 6 to 4 adaptors were gone but I'm not sure why they seemed to delate themselfs, probably just rebooting helped.

If it starts creating more of those adaptors again on each start up just try another more recent driver from the Asus support site which should fix the problem for good.

Well, I guess it all comes out in the end

Thanks for the help... This one's been bugging me for some time!
