I have a Cisco AE1000 USB wireless adapter and up until I reinstalled Windows 7 it worked flawlessly. Now I plug it in and the computer recognizes it and finds the correct driver for it but it never shows up as a network adapter. Right now I am using the Intel a/b/g wifi adapter that is built in to my laptop. My drivers are correct. I've tried uninstalling it from device manager, restarting and letting it find it and it still doesn't work.

Here is the pertinent information:

ISP: Comcast
Router:ASUS RT-N56U
Modem: Motorola SB5101U
Anti Virus/Firewall: ESET Smart Security 5.0.94.0

Hi Valiant,

Did you download and install the latest driver for your USB adapter from the manufacturer's site?

Yes. When I noticed the problem, I uninstalled the first set of drivers and reinstalled a fresh download from Cisco/Linksys' site. It didn't help. The adapter shows up properly in device manager but it doesn't show up at all under my network adapters. I have 2 other types of usb wireless adapter and they don't work either.

Try uninstalling the device driver from Safe Mode by restarting your computer tap F8 then select this option. Disable Eset completely before uninstalling/reinstalling the updated driver.

That solved the problem, but now ESET is reporting an ARP Cache Poisoning attack coming from 192.168.1.8 and a DDOS attack from 192.168.1.1
I know its a false alarm on both but it didn't do it when I was using my built in wireless g adapter.

You should be okay. Enable Eset then try disabling the Firewall side only, leave your Windows Firewall enabled.

I'll probably just go back to ESET 4.x instead of 5.x I don't like the interface changes anyway. Thank you for your help. Feel free to close this thread whenever.
