Hi, when I open up device manager, under the “network adapters” tab, there is a yellow exclamation mark next to “isatap.{1571B893-418B-4845-85A8-C0509A7C41CF}.” When I check under this devices’ properties, it says “This device cannot start. (Code 10).” I'm using Vista btw (if it makes a difference).

is there any way to fix this?

thanks in advance!

You can either allow it to try and find the drivers or you can point it towards the drivers after you have downloaded them.

Right-Click the Network Card within Device Manager, then select to Update the driver. The wizard will open up. Check the box to allow it to search the internet for the drivers. If you are lucky, it will go through without a problem. Be patient as I have seen it take a while in certain cases.

If that doesn't work, then you need to go to the PC (or motherboard) manufacturers site for the drivers for the network card. You can download them and attempt the install by pointing the wizard to the spot where you have downloaded the drivers. Sometimes the drivers have their own setup programs.

Good luck.

I've seen a lot of HP systems with this issue. The good news is that it's related to IPv6 use over IPv4 networks, so most people don't even need it.

The easiest "fix" that I've seen is to uninstall the device in Device Manager and then reboot. That'll fix it most times. If it doesn't, post back and we'll have to go into some detail about how to disable it.

Here's a google on ISATAP that may be of interest: http://www.google.com/search?q=isatap&...lient=firefox-a
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

i've read some forums and people with my problem who have uninstalled said that when they reboot, it does not automatically detect and reinstall so i am more hesitant.

That will happen at work also - in those case we just figger that everything is OK. You'll only need IPv6 (AFAIK) if you're using the new Windows Meeting Space - it's the only program that I know of that requires it.
