i have a D'link Wireless N 150 PCI Adapter and i'm running windows 7 32bit.

i had no problem installing the device originally, i just used the included disc and it was fine for a long time. but suddenly it stopped connecting to anything.

when i open the device manager, it is listed under Network Adapters as "802.11n Wireless LAN Card" but has a yellow "!" over the thumbnail. when i open the properties of the adapter it gives me a message under Device Status:
"This device is not working Properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)"

I have tried updating the driver both automatic and manually, from the disc and from the d'link website. i have tried completely uninstalling and starting over and nothing makes any difference. it all brings me to the same result, windows cannot load the drivers. i have searched all over and cant seem to find a solution for this network adapter yet but i'm hoping one of you can.

thanks

Hi jonny
Please try removing the usb wifi adapter first along with the driver installed. Run system file checker http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833 then go back to device manager and uninstall all usb host controllers. Restart computer and they will be reinstalled. Install the USB adapter's latest driver and if successful, insert the wifi adapter.

It's not a USB adapter, it's installed in my pci slot on my desktop. Will that make a difference?

Sorry my mistake. Just remove the driver completely and then run system file checker then reinstall the PCI adapter's driver.
