Toshiba Satellite Pro L300. Dual Boot, Ubuntu 11.10, Vista Business Service Pack 2
Intel ® Core 2 duo cpu T6670 @ 2.2 GHz, 3GB RAM, 32-bit OS
Description of problem:
Vista partition can only connect partially to the internet - it's not hardware because Ubuntu works perfectly fine. Hard-wire internet works (but I don't have easy access to that). Wireless only works limited. For instance, in Steam I can access chat and have an entire conversation at normal speed. However steam can not access other online content, like community or the store. Firefox can't load google/can't access the internet at all. I could download an entire game from steam, relatively quickly but again during that firefox could not work, nor could the rest of steam's functions. Thunderbird similarly does not connect. Internet icon in tray will sometimes show that it has "local only" access, and at others will say it connects to the internet. When I diagnose the connection: "Windows did not find any problems". Reseting the network adapter does not work.
I have tried all settings I can think of in network connections. I have tried disabling my firewall. I have also tried turning off my antivirus (Avast! free edition).
The following driver is malfunctioning:
Microsoft Tun Miniport Adapter #2
Driver Version: 6.0.6002.18005 (in another window the version says 6.0.6001.18000 (longhorn_rtm.080118-1840)
Error message: "This device can not start.(Code 10)"
In an attempt to fix the driver, I have tried to "find a solution", but the screen exits before giving any information. I tried to update the driver but it says its up to date (really? surprising given how old it is?)
I've been running the vista partition for a month or less (long story). So it's possible an upgrade was missed, I've been in the process of trying to get everything up to date.
Any help will be appreciated, I've been trying to fix this for over a week and the internet issue is getting REALLY annoying.
Thanks again everyone!
