Network Adapters

Dear Toshiba Tech Support:

 

Re: S/N: 8B028217W, Part #: PSK1WU-077044

 

L755-S5275 15.6” Notebook, Windows 7 Operating System

  

I have had the notebook for only about 6 weeks.  Just recently, I noticed messages indicating problems.  The Diagnostic Tool included in the computer's software indicates that the Network Test failed.  Further checking showed problems with the following Network Adapters:

 

- Microsoft 6to4 Adapter

- Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #1

- Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #2

- Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface

 

The indicator showed that these devices could not start.  The trouble-shooter said to update the drivers, but this did not work.

 

Further, under Devices and Printers, the computer shows that it is in need of trouble-shooting, but trouble-shooting and suggestions (updating the driver) did not fix the problem.

 

While I have not noticed any operational problems with my computer, I am concerned about these problems showing up in several areas.  I am also concerned because I have only had the computer for less than 2 months.

 

Thank you very much for your help with this.

 

Sincerely,

Re: Network Adapters

Are you still able to connect to your network with this notebook? If so, do you use wireless or a wired connection?

 

While I realize you're using Windows 7, I did find this article by Microsoft on the issue with Windows Vista machines, and it appears to be a "false positive" so to speak. Again, that article refers to Vista though, so it might mean nothing.

 

You could try opening Device Manager, right-clicking on the problem adapters, and selecting "Uninstall." Only uninstall one at a time, and reboot after each. If it was my computer though, I'd only do that if I actually noticed a problem with my use of the computer.
