Default Internet stopped working / Yellow sign next to drives

Hey guys,

My other work laptop has not been connected to the internet for a while. I noticed in the drive manager / network adapters there were some yellow warning signs. I can't even get it to connect when I hardwire the ethernet cable. Any steps to help me with this?

My computer is a Dell Latitude 810.

Thank you.

Hi my friend , what is your OS ? You must give us your service tag which is located at the bottom of the laptop !!

Ok. So I did that and then what.. I go to the drivers section and category network? Then download those 2 drivers that come up? Isn't there sometimes a certain order to install drivers?

If you are running XP, you might want to read this blog about how to remove the packet scheduler miniport entries from Device Manager

Ok so I did what you told me to each one with a yellow marker on the device.

The first 3 (from the top) said: ms_pschedmp

And the last one said: ms_l2tpminiport

See if resetting TCP/IP helps. This is for XP SP2 and later.

At the command window of an admin account type the following:

netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

Right click on the network icon in the system tray, select open network connections. Right click on your connection and select properties. Under this connection uses the following items, is TCP/IP checked? Is Client for Microsoft Networks checked?

Try uninstalling both network devices and then reboot. Might have to update the drivers. When you reboot you should only have two exclamation marks one for the NIC and the other for the wireless adapter.

Edit: but I think XP is missing some network component.

Tgell.. I don't know if I should move this post since it's a different issue, but after I got everything up and running the computer had 29 window updates. I did all of the updates (until it froze towards the last 3) and downloaded firefox. Now the computer just sits at 100% cpu usage and is really hard to work with.
