Apropos of absolutely nothing my Realtek rtl8187b wireless adapter is not working. I do not think it is the adapters problem because another USB

mounted adapter does not work either. The consistent message I get is "windows couldn't automatically bind the ip protocol stack to the network'.

It is not hard to find this string in Google but none of the many solutions (for others) have worked. Some, but not all of the things I have

tried:

- Reinstalled latest version of driver for Realtek about 10 times.
- Reset tcp/ip
- Reset (reloaded?) ipv4 and 6
- Stopped my AVG anti-virus
- Turned off Windows firewall
- Tried another adapter that did not work
- About six other things that I cannot remember.
- My router is not one of the likely suspects because it is working for all my other wireless devices flawlessly.
- I did a system restore but apparently it did not go back far enough.
- These two wireless adapters (Realtek plus USB device) have worked perfectly until last night.

This is happening on the latest update of Windows 7 64bit. To show you just one piece of information, here is what I see when I do a 'ipconfig

/all'. I am hoping the formatting below is not too crazy.

Any and all help and/or suggestions most welcome.

Thanks very much,
Jim Lee

Hi there,

You've said you're using Windows 7, depending on the manufacturer of the hardware it would generally support hard disk recovery so you should be able to perform a full destructive recovery that way should you desire.

If you run ipconfig in command prompt, does it list an ip address next to default gateway?

Had you changed or installed anything prior to when the devices ceased to function?
