    Adapter becomes unresponsive constantly


    Hi all,

    I was a frequent user of the 7 forums, but I switched to 8 and didn't have any problems until now. This one is stumping me.

    Only just a few days ago did this problem begin. During any session, my wireless adapter will become totally unresponsive and then all of my media connections will become inactive and disconnected. I try to run an ipconfig and it just lists everything as disconnected.

    I am thinking that this isn't a driver problem because the wireless internet works up until this happens. I use a d-link usb-wireless adapter but that shouldn't be the problem because even my ethernet becomes disconnected when this issue occurs.

    Any thoughts?

    go to device manager and uninstall your wireless drivers

    on top in the action tab, select scan for hardware changes

    allow windows to reinstall the wireless drivers in their original unaltered state

    reconnect to the network, you will need to retype the wireless password.

    If all works well, then do the same for your ethernet adaper..
