Why do I have to keep resetting my network adaptor
For the last 2 or 3 weeks every time I try to connect wirelessly (not sure thatís a word) I have to diagnose my connection and then reset the network adaptor and everything then works fine, I'm sure it has only occured after a windows update but its beginning to do my head in as I often swap between home, work and friends wireless. I have checked all the authentication keys etc are correct and as I said as soon as I reset the network adaptor its fine. I'm running Vista home premium on a Medion laptop, any pointers would be appreciated.
Your problem could be caused by many things but there are a few things to try at first, I'm guesing that it did work before the time previous to the 2-3 Week,
It is worth just checking if you remember installing any software sometimes software adds itself to the windows software.
A Possible cause could be that the Network card driver has go itself in a bit of a muddle firstly make sure that you have the drivers on your computer normally you wil find them in the drivers folder, Once you know that you have them right click onto the "My Computer" icon and then left click onto the "Properties" this will then open another window then choose Devic manager on the left hand side of the Window, You can then find the Wireless Network card and then uninstall the card by pressing the delete key it will ask of you are sure, Click yes, Then restart the laptop this will then reinstall the device for you and put all of the entry's for the wireless card to defaults just incase thigs like registry entry's are currupt.
Also ipv6 can also cause problems and at present you do not need to use it because everything still used IPV4 so you can then untick this in the Network connection properties.
Sometimes a re-installation of TCPIP is also good because again the registry entry's can be currupted from other software interupting,
This should also clear out the names cache which can also cause problems,
Unfortunatly Vista seems to get these problems quite often and this guide is really only some possibles for you to check.
Hope it helps a little

Thanks for the assistance so far.
Hello Bukllyboy Sorry for the Delay, Sounds like you have tried a few things,
To re-install TCPIP there are a few ways but I normally use The Following,
Go to the Run On The Start menu then Type Regedit and then click onto the OK Button.
Now goto the Edit Menu on the program and then click Find
In the What to search for Type "Winsock2" without the Marks and then ckick onto the Find button It should now find
Now close the Find Button because We are there you will also See "Winsock" above it I normally export both of these to the Hard disk just in case. Once exported now click onto Delete on "Winsock" & "Winsock2" Onve done then restart the computer, When the computer starts again it may have a moan about the TCPIP not being installed thats fine we know about this (We Did It)
Not we need to reinstall the Tcpip, Go to the Control Panel and then click onto the Network Connections now click onto your network card and right click and then left click on the properties then clickto the networking Tab now click onto Install and then Click onto the Protocol then click Add
You will not see the TCPIP so now click onto the Brows button and type c:\windows\inf and then click OK now you will see a list now install the TCPIP v4 this will now reinstall TCPIP best to now restart the computer.
Sounds long winded but it is pretty quick to do. And then see How we do then ?
