Intel Adaptor Confusion?

Hello: My new system is, as far as I can tell, up and running, no more BSOD over and over. Second BIOS update #1205. Here is the one thing not going right: On the internet connection page, from Control Panel, I have disabled every thing except the Intel LAN adapter. Should be Ethernet cable type, right? It says, however, ASUS5 which is the WiFi. Nothing I've tried has changed this and I'm not even sure it is on WiFi. If I disconnect my router (ASUS RT-N56U with latest firmware) and go straight to the modem it goes on line with no WiFi possible. I'd like to have the WiFi available but not use it for security reasons. I've updated the ASUS utilities and Windows. My old Dell WS 390 P4 XP connects just fine on the other router port. Tried swapping cables at the router, different cable. If relevent I have not installed the video card yet.

I've talked to ASUS tech support once about this but did not get anywhere, will try them again this week but thought I'd ask you all.
Thanks, Duke Masters

  1. DO you have the latest drivers? Did you go through the network setup in Windows?
  2. Best answer
    Right click on the WiFi connection and uncheck automatically connect to this network when it is within range.
  3. Went to Intel and downloaded the latest driver (18. something, 12. something is current driver) but it won't install. Don't see automatic connect box and delete is greyed out.???
