Two mentions listed under the network adapter in Device Manager

Good evening

For the record, I use a Compaq Presario AMD Athlon (TM) 64 Processor 3300 +, 2411 MHz/1.93 GB RAM, running Windows XP Home Edition, SP3, with IE8.

I was looking around ' Device Manager ' tonight and I noticed two references under "network card".

(1) 1394 network adapter

(2) siS 900-Based PCI Fast Ethernet adapt

Could someone please tell me what is the purpose of each of them and do I need two permits.

I have only this one computer and I connect to the Internet with a connection cable from Comcast.

Thank you and best regards,


"... enough Said." Keep smiling because I'm smiling too! »


There is no reason why you should disable one of them. Certainly not your adapter PCI ethernet, or your internet connection is also disabled.

Here's what's your other link:

  • Why are there two routers listed in the Network Infrastructure?

    I have a Linksys WRT54G2 router, but sometimes when I look at my network in the control panel it shows an extra router, that router ghost appears in the title of the Network Infrastructure. It's a WRT160N. Sometimes it's there, sometimes it isn't.

    I have Windows 7.

    Why this is part of my network? Should I be worried? How can I stop it arise?
    Here is a screenshot of the problem:

    Hey DavidVX,

    I found a few other similar topics you can check below:
    On a thread, the user was able to match the MAC address of the window of the Network Infrastructure to an open wireless network (unprotected) nearby. This seems to be the case for multiple threads, I found elsewhere on the internet.
    Given that I have found so many other similar threads on the same issue, I would consider it is safe and I would just ignore it.

  • Configure the network adapter speed / bandwidth management

    Hi all

    In VMware ESX 4, it is possible to configure the speed of vmnic with a speed of diferent? I can do 10, 100, 1000 or full / half-duplex (photos attached) but... is possible to configure the speed of 4 MB, 40 MB or something different?

    For bandwidth management, the best solution is the new Cisco device?

    Thank you very much.

    N ° negotiated between the physical NETWORK adapter and the physical switchport speed can be 10/100/1000. Just like in the physical world...

    But you can do some of the traffic shaping based on your configuration... On a vSwitch standard you can control the evacuation traffic. On a distributed vSwitch, you control evacuation AND penetration.

  • Satellite A500-15N: could not find the network adapter XP driver

    Hello world

    I just blown away vista on my new A500-15N and installed XP + SP2.
    The installation went well but I have some problems with some devices does not.

    They are: 3 x of the device Base, 1 x Ethernet, 1 x network controller controller system, 2 x PCI device, 1 x controller Bus SM, 1 unknown device x and 1 x video controller (VGA Compatible).

    I thought that I would be able to load network card drivers in order to allow access to the internet and then be able to download everything, either automatically, or manually. But I can't have any network card to load drivers!

    After loading some on the Toshiba web site, it makes no difference.
    I deleted and then to detect automatically the network card in Device Manager, but I can't find any drivers installed to run.

    Anyone know what I can do to fix this, or any other issue?

    Thank you



    Do you need the card network LAN driver Wlan or both pilots?
    As far as I know the piece of LAN card is Realtek (1 Gbps) and the Intel 5100AGN WLAN.

    The WLan driver can be found here:
    Intel PRO/Wireless 3945, 4965, 5100, 5300

    The driver LAN on the Realtek page:

    You can consult the page of the European driver Toshiba. Other series of laptops use the same Realtek LAN card and the driver should work too.

  • Automatically get new IP settings for the network adapter

    I have a home network with two computers Vista and I have a Vista laptop for work.  Where my work laptop is home it does not automatically connect to the internet, similarly if I want it.  When I go to network and sharing on laptop computer center it displays icons for the laptop, my home and internet network.  Threre is a X red between the network icon and the internet.  If I click on the red X a pop-up window indicates that Windows checks the problem.  Then a box will appear with several options, one if which is automatically "get new IP settings for the NIC 'Wireless Network Connection'.  When I click on a window pops up that says repair, and after a brief interval, she announced that the problem has been fixed, and it was fixed.

    How can I configure things so that she will do it automatically without this manual intervention.  There must be some way because I have never asked a password or permission to continue.

    If I turn off the laptop and then turn it back on a few moments later, the network connection is still there.  The problem occurs when I try again a few days later.

    Thank you.

    P.S. I tried to submit this a couple of days, but it does not appear under my son, so I don't know what happened.  If the previous post is without me being able to find I apologize.  I don't like having to type things, that's for sure. Jim

    Thanks for the reply.  I did it.

    I'm not sure it would fix the problem however, because the problem occurs after a day power off and power back up a few days later.  So presumably the power to the network adapter has been disable for power off intervals.

    Something happened tonight when I put under tension.  Asked me to confirm something on the network (unfortunately I can't remember what) and after that, I was connected to the internet - without having to go through the manual process described with my problem.  So maybe something has been reconfigured will correct the problem.

  • "The network adapter is not correctly configured to use the ip Protocol" problem on Vista

    Hello. My PC has recently came across this problem "the network adapter is not correctly configured to use the ip Protocol", every time I click on diagnose & repair. I don't know how to fix it. Please help, thanks in advance. Magic

    Hello X-x_MaGiC_x-X,

    Thank you for visiting the website of Microsoft Windows Vista Community.

    Try the rest of the stage in this article:

    System restore points are created automatically when the following occur:

    • When you install a new application or driver.
    • When you uninstall or install some programs.
    • When you install new updates
    • Automatically on a daily interval
    • Manually by creating a.
    • If you choose to use system restore to restore to a previous restore point, System Restore creates a new restore point before you restore a previous state in case something goes wrong. If you are restoring to a previous state in Mode without failure, a restore point will create for the current state.

    So that the restoration of the system to work, you must have 300 MB of free space for each hard disk that monitors the system restore. System Restore will also use up to 15% of disk space on each disk that it monitors. That hard disk space runs out, older restore points will be deleted as newer ones. It is also important to note that you must be logged in as an administrator in order to use the system restore. Now that you understand the basics of the system restore, you must continue to the next section to learn how to use it.

    Restore Windows Vista to a previous state

    In the case of a problem on your computer that cannot be solved by normal means, you can restore your computer to a previous working state. To do this, you need to start restoring the system so that you can choose the restore point to restore. If you currently have Windows Vista boot problems, you can use the system restore in Windows recovery environment. Instructions on how to do it in this tutorial can be found: System Restore using the Windows Vista recovery environment.

    If you can connect to Windows Vista, you must follow these steps.

    1. Close and save any documents that you have opened.
    2. Click the Start button to open your Start Menu. The Start button looks like this:
    3. When the Start Menu open click on the menu option all programs.
    4. Click once on the Start Menu Accessories group.
    5. Click once on the System Tools Start Menu group.
    6. Click once on the icon of the system restore. After you click the icon, if a user account control window opens, click on the button continue.

    You will now be on the screen as shown below in Figure 1 system restore. From this screen, you can specify the restore point that you want to restore.

    1 screen of system restore

    By default, Vista will be already selected the restore recommended option. This restore point is one followed a new pilot program, or update has been installed. If you do not want to use this restore point, you can click on the button next to start the restore process. On the other hand, if there is a more recent restore point that you want to restore you should select choose a different restore point and press the next button. This will bring you to a screen, as shown in Figure 2, which contains a list of all available restore points that you can restore.

    2. the list of available restore points

    You must select the restore point that you want to restore, and then press the button next to start the restore process. Vista will display a window showing your selected restore point and asking you to confirm that it is that you want to restore.

    3. confirm the selected restore point

    If you want to select a different restore point, press the Back button. Otherwise, you can press the Cancel button to exit the system restore or the button finish to begin the restore process. If you have selected finish, Vista will display a second prompt asking you to confirm that you want to continue restoring.

    4. second Confirmation

    If you are sure you want to restore, then press the Yes button. Vista will now log you off the computer and start the system restore process, as shown in Figure 5 below.

    5. restoration of a restore point

    When the restore is complete, your computer will be restarted and when Vista starts it backup will be restored to its previous state. When you open a Vista session for the first time after the restore, you will see a message indicating that the restore was successful.

    6. system restore was successful

    If there are problems with your computer because the last restoration, you can return to your previous settings to ebb in the system restore utility and select Undo system restore by pressing the next button.

    7 undo the last system restore

    Your computer should now work correctly again.

    With the help of the restoration of the system in the Windows recovery environment

    Manual creation of Restore Points

    As mentioned previously, it is also possible to create manual restore depending on points. Some popular designs to create manual restore points are when you have your computer configured perfectly and I would save the State in case of problems in the future. To create a manual restore point, you must follow these steps:

    1. Click the Start button to open your Start Menu. The Start button looks like this:
    2. Click on the control panel menu option.
    3. Click the option menu system and Maintenance.
    4. Click on the system menu option.
    5. Click on the System Protection in the list on the left.

    You will now be at the System Protection tab in the system control panel. This tab allows you to enable and disable the system restore as well as making the new manual restore points.

    8. the System Protection tab

    To create a manual restore point, you must click on the button create. When you press this button a prompt asking you to give a title to this manual restore point.

    9. Enter the manual restore point title

    Type a title for the manual restore point and press the button create. Vista will now create a restore point manually and once finished, post a notice that it was created successfully.

    10. Manual restore point has been created

    Now that you have finished doing the manual restore point, you can close the system window.

    Try to download the correct and up-to-date drivers.

    This should solve your problem.

    Let us know if these steps solve your problem.  I hope the information is useful.

  • Update the network adapter for Dell UPS

    We have two Dell UPS 4200W, each with an EBM 192V.

    I can not access our network UPS interface because it is old SSL certificate. I guess the network adapter needs an update. If I update the inverter by its USB connection with software upgrade to UPS, which will also update the card, or do I need to connect directly to the port settings on the map?

    If I run an update via the USB port, there will be no downtime, or all our servers will continue under tension?

    Thanks for any help.


    The update you need is right here. The update should be pushed through multiple UPS Dell Management Console, which you can find here. There is also an update of the firmware available for the inverter, you can download it from here. Now with most of the firmware updates, the system will usually have to restart. I suggest scheduling downtime, just in case.

    Let me know if it helps.

    (1) what is the user id you are using OEM fior?

    The user id should have Sysdba and should not be in the role SYSASM.

    (2) in order to check your port

    In server, in the gate of the House, listener, lsnrctl status--> Verify asm instance listed on your listening port.

    Summary of endpoints listening...

    (Check that the PORT and IP information is correct)

    Instance '+ ASM1' READY State, has 1 operation for this service...

    (3) in addition, connect to asm and check the connection

    Show u local_listener and entered into OEM parameter details are correct.

    (4) OEM, I think you add Cluster_ASM.

    Oracle_home_path--> you're grid House

    username--> with sysdbarole

    --> Sysdba role

    Cluster_name--> $GRID_HOME/bin/cemutlo - n

    Sqlplus on the same machine works very well with the same connection settings, I also try the same SQLDEVELOPER version in the windows box and I had no problem with the connection.

    what I tried:
    1. in the course of running tcpdump eth0 dst db01x-i on the client and I don't got no network traffic going out of the box
    2.i have also tried tcpdump - neither eth0 host and port 1521 on the server database to be sure, but also no traffic

    I'd appreciate any help in this topic.

    This problem is probably with java networks interacting with a new parameter to the default kernel in Debian. Among the bugs identified on this is here - []
    Two things to try, from various bug reports, are

  • The network adapter could not establish the connection using the external ip address

    Hi team,

    Please look in the attached files.

    I installed db 11g on my desktop machine (Windows 7, with a local network) and then I created a data source connection in tomcat which was also in the same system and then I deployed my sample web application, everything works fine, I am able to access web applications.

    But once that I kept my system with external IP address (excluding local network of my company), oracle gives these following errors when tomcat start

    Here is the following URL will display the error during the startup of tomcat.

    The network adapter could not establish the connection,

    In these two files, listener and tnsnames ora ora, need to change the configurations if I change the Ip address of the system?

    even I tried my address keeping external Ip instead if host in these two configuration files, yet this does not work.

    any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you.

    Because as I explained - your listener is listening on localhost only. localhost is never accessible to another machine.

    Stop your listener, change the listener.ora to listen to on the real machine name and start the receiver.

    In addition, your tnsnames.ora points to localhost...

    Stop using localhost, unless you only want things to work on the same machine.

  • I/o error: the network adapter could not establish the connection: connection to oracle database


    I am not able to connect to the Oracle SQL developer database. I said / 0 error: the network adapter could not establish the connection.

    I started the listener, but what I see is, it points to a different IP address instead of the IP address of the host. How to change the name of host or IP address.

    I see that it points to the host name in listener.ora.

    Attached the screenshot

    Can someone help me solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance

    What he says is the listener.ora file is not necessary to start the listener.  If you rename, then start the receiver, then start the db, after a minute or two, the db should automatically register with the listener and then you can make a tnsping or otherwise connect to the database through the listener.

    I'm not entirely sure what's going on with your image, but I can't help but wonder if somehow something is not what you expect with the investigation period, whenever it starts.

    So use lsnrctl status lsnrctl services to see what the listener is the situation and tnsping and ping from the client to see what he thinks.
