Hey,

My laptop can no longer connect to wireless.

It is not detecting any wireless signals (Even though there is definately one).

In Device Manager under Network adapters 'isatap' is not working correctly;
"This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this decice. (Code 31)"

I googled isatap and found this;

http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itprovistanetworking/thread/4dd5ff02-327e-4c28-b2c0-59a4a3324dae/

It says that this is an ignorable issue.

It also said to uninstall and reinstall isatap; I did this, and the abnormal entry in Device Manager went away, but wireless was still unable to be detected. Restarting the computer made the entry return in Device Manager, still not able to detect any signal.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

Also, under services WLAN AutoConfig has the Serveice status "Stopped"

I have tired to start it, but it comes up with an error message;

"Windows could not start the WLAN AutoConfig service on Local Computer

Error 1067: The process termitated unexpectedly"

According to this (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/932520)

It is a problem in Vista, but it should still work

Yeah, I read that.. But even so I still cannont detect any wireless signals. Maybe it's just a problem with WLAN AutoConfig..?

What make and model laptop?
Does it have a wireless on/off switch?
Is it switched off?
Have you read the user guide?

Is SP1 installed? Install it if it isn't

Yeah, the wireless switch is in.
My laptop is HP Pavilion dv6305tx.
Troubleshooting on the HP website was unhelpful; I updated the BIOS and network adapter drivers, but neither helped.
It does have SP1 installed.
