    Alright, so this is what happened. my internet was working fine, but then there was a problemw ith my wall jack,and so i had to get someone to come and fix it, well 2 days after fixing the jack, my internet just stopped working. IE was out for a whie, so i didn't even care cause firefox was still working. but then firefox stopped working too. the odd thing is i could still go on msn. but then i had to leave for the weekend, taking my laptop with me. when i came back, my laptop just wont let me connet to the internet.
    there is an little error sign right beside 6t04 like a little yellow exclaimation mark. what can i do to fix it???
    the error for it is that my driver didnt load completely for that adapter, but i dont know whats wrong with it. it was working perfectly fine before.

    my laptop is a hp pavillion dv5000 running on windows vista .
    any help would be appreciated.!!

    Try to right click on it and select disable.

    Here are a few changes that may help to increase the compatibility of Vista with older networking devices, none of these should affect normal stuff you'd do:

    Disable the IP Helper service:

    1. Hold the Windows key and type R, enter "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
    2. Scroll down to the IP Helper service, right click on it and select Properties
    3. In the dropdown box that says "Automatic" or "Manual", set it to Disabled and then click on "Apply"
    4. Then click on "Stop" to stop the service from running in the current session
    5. Click OK to exit the dialog

    Disable IPv6:

    1. Hold the Windows key and type R, enter "ncpa.cpl" (without the quotes) and press Enter
    2. Right click on each network connection and select "Properties"
    3. Remove the checkmark from the box next to "Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)
    4. Click OK to exit the dialog

    NOTE: You should do this for each network connection.

    Disable the DHCP Broadcast Flag:

    Link: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233
    1. Hold the Windows key and type R, enter regedit and press Enter.
    2. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    3. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters\Interfaces\{GUID}
    4. In this registry path, click the (GUID) subkey to be updated.
    5. If the key DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag does not exist, use the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD (32-bit) Value. In the New Value #1 box, type DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag, and then press ENTER. If the key exists, skip this step.
    6. Right-click DhcpConnForceBroadcastFlag, and then click Modify.
    7. In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
    8. Close Registry Editor.
    NOTE: You should do this for each and every GUID subkey.
    NOTE2: (GUID) is a mnemonic for the individual subkeys, the actual text "GUID" does not appaer.

    The only program I'm aware of that currently relies on IPv6 is the new Windows Meeting Space. The first 2 changes will cause that program not to work - but will leave all of your normal (IPv4) connections unaffected. If it causes problems that you can't overcome, simply revert back to the original settings.
