Device Error Microsoft 6to4 Adapter

  Joan-276804 20:24 14 Jul 2007

My system diagonistics report tells me that this device cannot start and Device Manager shows a yellow triangle. I don't know what this device does other than it is something to do with network connection. I've followed the advice on updating the driver but am told this is up-to-date. I think this has only happened recently, is it important?

I just like to say I don't know a fix but I have also got this problem I think it may have started with Networking - Realtek RTL8168/8111 Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)up-date but I am unsure

Hi I was having exactly the same entry in Device Manager and at 0ne time there were over 40 entries. This started to cause me concern and a undertook to find where this originated from: Eventually it pointed to the Network Adapter Group within D/M
The solution lies in the Microsoft Update site where there is an upgrade to Realtek RTL8168/8111 Family PCI-E Gigabit NIC (NDIS 6.0) It is show as an Optional Update!!
Hope this helps it did for me my PC is now clear of the 6TO4 error exclamation mark

I have been having this problem too Wightman, have you got a link to the update you mention? I've had a look on Microsoft site and can't find it! Thanks.

I think my problems may have started with an update of my Intel network connection via Dell restoring my system to an earlier date has not helped. Guess I will just have to wait until someone releases a suitable update.

i don't believe this is part of vista. ? norton antivirus? deleted the adapter and rebooted and windows didn't reinstall it. give it a try. no warranties but it worked for me.
