Hello folks,

After trying to communicate between an XP machine and Win7 using static IP and a crossover cable my wireless card stopped working. I did make the mistake of trying Homegroups prior to that.

It says Unidentified network and constantly remains in the Public Profile. Not even WiFi Sync is working...diagnostics reveal a problem with the drivers though several have been tried. From the originals to the latest version...Properties describe the device is working normally?

Any thoughts before I reinstall and start fro
scratch?

FTT.

Please reset both TCP/IP and Winsock.

Click on Start=> All Programs => Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log press enter
Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log press enter
Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog press enter

Restart the computer after.

=================
If above is unsuccessful, remove your network encryption or change the Security to WEP, test your connection after.

Please post an update.

Netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log resulted in:

There's no user specified settings to be reset

I had to leave it to reset but will post back once I'm back from a call.

Many thanks

I've attached a screen grab (in .doc I know but I was rushing and didn't use paint) of the error received when trying to repair it using Elevated privileges.

I've backed up all my data but would prefer not to re-install Win7...

Would another compatible card be a better option or do you think that the Drivers etc. are completely screwed and on a re-install would work?

BTW it was an upgrade to Win7 from Vista Home Premium...from a previous post not even Wifi Sync is working.

Many thanks.

First up I believe Congrats are in order. Secondly what else could you recommend to do? Are there any more diagnostics or reports that could be generated and posted to give a better idea?
