Myrna,

When a network controller disappears from the Device Manager, it can mean
that it is not physically installed properly. However, it can also be
because you are not looking at the correct area. Devices that are not
correctly identified, or that do not have working drivers, will be placed in
a slight different area.
Would you please:
1) Reseat the device in question and if it is USB or PCMCIA (PC-Card) check
to make sure it is firmly plugged in. Make sure that you can use other
PCMCIA or USB devices as well, in case there is some problem with the
hardware on your particular PC.

2) Check the section of Device Manger called: Other Devices. Those items
indentified with a question mark "?" are either not installed properly or
not identified properly. By re-installing the drivers that came with the
device, these should work and show up in the correct area.

Most likely you need to do just that, re-install the driver, and Device
Manager should show you how to do that.

I found your post interesting. I stayed in a hotel over the holidays
that had a wireless network running that I made the mistake of using.
Since then, I have uninstalled and re-installed my Linksys Notebook
Adapter probably 15 times trying to make it work consistently. One
time it will find my network but not give me internet. I reboot and it
tells me that the device driver is missing. I uninstll and try to
reinstall and it tells me that the device drivers have already been
installed. Does any of this sound familiar? I am starting to think
virus.
