This is only for Ipv6 and does not stop your wireless adapter form working. On a Windows Vista-based computer or on a Windows Server 2008-based computer, the Microsoft ISATAP adapter appears with a yellow exclamation mark next to it in Device Manager, and you also receive an error message
Do you have a wireless slider switch on the front lip of your laptop? Is it on? Do you have a wireless icon in your system tray by the clock? Can you double click this icon and Scan For Available Wireless Networks? Do you see your Wireless Network? Have you tried to Connect to the Network? Have you typed in your saved Pass Phrase to enter the network?

Yes I've tried all of those things. Everything is on. The error message says "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

Re: Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #7 not working reading Code 31

It got me to the point of uninstallation but does not tell me how to reinstall it. So I've lost the program.

By Network connections do you mean View Network Computer and Devices? I right clicked on the Owner PC and went to properties and didn't find an IPv6 box.

Hi Mangrove,

Download the latest driver for your Wi-Fi Adapter to be found in the Manufacturer's site.

Disable your AV, Security or Firewall Software.

Restart your computer and tap F8. Select Safe Mode in Networking. In Device Manager, uninstall the problematic network adapter then manually install the latest driver.

Restart your computer and see if the code 31 error is gone, test your wireless connection.

Please give us an update.

Thanks Joe for moving the Thread to Networking section.
