Hey guys,

 

I've recently been having a problem with my Local Area adapter. Every time I plug my charger in, the internet disables itself. Troubleshooting, enabling the adapter with admin priviledges, and resetting my physical router all do not work, and I have to restart my computer. When I do, it freezes at the shutdown screen, and I have to force shut down. When I restart my computer, the internet works just fine. Trying to enable the Adapter when the internet is down doesn't work, because it freezes, and troubleshooting "can't identify the problem."

 

Things I have tried already:

 

1. Downloading the mot current adapter drivers

2. Enabling the Local Area Connection Adapter when I DO have internet access

3. Checking to see if I have any power-saving features turned on (I do not--all of the boxes are checked in Power Management options)

 

I also noticed that in Device Managers, the WiMAX reports that the driver software isn't installed, even though I just installed the most recent.

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

Did you uninstall the previous driver first?


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I didn't, I'll see if that helps.

UPDATE: I uninstalled the previous driver, but when I re-install, it gives an error message saying that one of the drivers was not successfully installed. When I go to Device Manager, the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-n + Wimax 6150 driver is still giving me a code 28.
