    Aloha,
    I have a Dell XPS 8300 16MB memory, Windows 7, that has a problem with the Network adapter. When I clicked on the network adapter, it showed a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark. It said Teredo tunneling pseudo-interface and the error message said "This device cannot start code 10. I tried to update the driver but it said that it was current. I called Dell support and the tech said that it is a virtual drive and there wasn't anything to worry about. I said if he could clear the problem and he said he couldn't and everything is ok. I hate to see that yellow triangle and was wondering if it is causing a problem and if it could be fixed. I will try to attach some pictures.

    Mahalo,

    Do you have Zone alarm installed by any chance? If so some have found a solution here: http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-...edo-tunneling-pseudo-interface-code-10-a.html

    Here's another solution I found http://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/29513-ipv6-but-cant-join-homegroup-2.html

    "For anyone else having this problem:

    1. Click Start. Search for run and press enter. In the field, type and press OK.

    2. In the registry, navigate to the following
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters]
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
    \SYSTEM
    \CurrentControlSet
    \Services
    \Tcpip6
    \Parameters
    3. In the right pane, right-click on “DisabledComponents” and select modify. In the value, type “0″ (without quotations) and press OK.
    4. Reboot your computer and it should work. It did for me."

    Aloha VictoriaiiCe,

    What do you type in the field? I tried to install Zone Alarm but I think McAfee stopped it so I uninstalled Zone Alarm but maybe it did cause the problem. I only had this computer a couple of days and I graduated from Win98SE so I have a lot of learning to do with Windows 7.
