    Windows 7: How to remove a corrupted, hidden, wireless network adapter from "Network Connections"

    I require to manually place and take out a hidden network tool in Windows 7. The device is called "Wireless Network Connection" other than is not scheduled in the Network Connections. The cause I acquainted with its there is when I attempt to rename "Wireless Network Connection 2" to "Wireless Network Connection" I get an bug which prompts me that the connection previously exists, even though the device has been uninstalled and is not scheduled. I have to take out this connection for the reason that it is completely tainted and preventing any wireless connectivity along with a red X in the system tray. The adapter is working very well on an additional machine. I have tried viewing hidden devices in Device Manager but that did not work.

    Actually every time you install a device Windows increases the Network connection’s number. And regarding this I will say that it is just an Id number, it does not signify that there are two useful Network connections. Log to the wireless adapter's support site and download the fresh drivers for your adapter. Look at Windows 7 Device Manger and uninstall the present Wireless Adapter. And after that you just reboot the computer and point to the drivers when asked to.


    Check once more the Device Manger a good admission should be there, it might be called Connection # 3 or #4.This subject is a long time Psychological subject for many users.

    Re: Windows 7: How to remove a corrupted, hidden, wireless network adapter from "Network Connections"

    The matter is that when I install a wireless network adapter on to my Windows 7 machine I have no connectivity; the system tray icon has a red X. Primary, I attempted the clear install in that I have updated drivers from the maker. When I complete this, the Network Connections icon had gray bars and there was no any kind of connectivity. So I attempted to install the network adapter on a dissimilar computer on the similar network and I established that it does work along with no matter. After that, I ran scan disk with no matter. Next, I ran sfc as admin along with no problems. At this point I turned to the router and turned SSID broadcast on but that did not help. I turned MAC address strain off at the router but that did not help. at whatever time I installed the unique network adapter it prompts me as "Wireless Network Connection 2" along with a grayed out icon and no connectivity. Finally, I attempted to install two dissimilar "verified working" USB wireless adapters on to the Windows 7 machine. The results were the similar "Wireless Network Connection 2" that had a green bar image but no connectivity. So please help me in order to fix this issue.

    What you have done to get a suitable connection you combine together issues and parameters that have extremely little to do along with the core installation of a Wireless card, and there is not anything in the Registry that is desirable to be deleted to create a basic card working.
    • Log to the Wireless Router along with a Wire connection; put out of action the MAC filter, Encryption, or any additional special setting that deviates from the default Wireless operation.
    • Uninstall the Wireless adapter from the usual Device Manager, switch off, the computer. Take out the Wireless card, or put out of action in the BIOS if it is an onboard card, then boot the computer devoid of a Wireless card so it will clean itself up.
    • Switch Off the computer, and install the card one more time using the right newest Drivers.
    • If the Wireless computer is far, or thwarted by walls from the Wireless Router, put it throughout the installation close to the Router.
    • When you attain a working connection at the Open Defaults, re-adjust the security.
    • So whatever I know regarding this in order to fix your issue I have told you over here. If you want then you can go for this I am sure that you will get the solution.

    I have read all the thing which is given on to the previous post and I am agree with that but in this you have to also do this in order to fix your issue. The first thing is if you aim to make use of MAC filter register the correct MAC before you enable the Filter. And the second thing is that during the years, I deal along with hundreds of Wire and wireless cards that where distorted, corrupted, go haywire, whatever, in a number of counts computers were working along with connection #9 and more. I not at all had to touch the Registry; a valid installation of a card takes over and works OK.

    I am also going through this and regarding this I am going to format and reinstall.* Attempting to solve a corrupted windows driver is regarding as helpful and bouncing my head next to the wall! I want to confirm I appreciate the recommendation which you guys have given.* Uninstall the NIC.* Reboot the computer.* Install updated drivers for the NIC.* Well I did that first and that solution unsuccessful totally.* So I tried, "mixing together matters and parameters that have extremely little to do with the core installation of a Wireless card".* I am sorry*that you do not approve of my troubleshooting techniques. So any more helpful suggestion regarding this will help me.
