Unable to connect wirelessly after Windows Update

Discussion in 'Wireless Networking' started by Southwest-Gal, Jul 27, 2008.

  1. *(I have also placed this post in Windows Update since I didn't know where to
    post.)

    I believe what is causing the problem is that SOMEONE here at home has
    allowed Windows Update to download and install all updates and drivers, which
    I never do. In doing this, they allowed the Realtek wireless update to be
    installed. I can't seem to find which update it is and hoped that someone
    can tell me so that I can remove it. Thank you so much for your help.

    Have you tried going into device manager, selecting the Realtek NIC
    and rolling back the driver?
