Solved: Remove VMWare Network Adapter

Q: Solved: Remove VMWare Network Adapter

I keep getting an IP Address Conflict on my network due to my laptop having the wifi card and 2 VMware connections that keep getting assigned an IP. I have tried to manually delete these VM connections but when I try it tells me it can not delete this connection. How can I remove these VMware Connections?

I know I could just manually assign an IP address to my wireless card, but that is to difficult as the IP for my home network is not in the "acceptable range" as my work network.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Well after hours of googling -- I found that If I opened up device manager, and clicked uninstall on the network adapter for the 2 VMware in question, it would remove them.

I've been playing around on some multiplayer games and it was a lot slower than usual, i tried plugging my ethernet cable in, the LED glowed and when i turned wireless off, there was no connection, i have tried disabling/re-enabling the driver, updating the driver, but nothing i have tried fixed the problem!

Are you playing the games on host or in vmware player?

If host:

I had problems with strange performance and network slowness issues before caused by vmware player.
If you want to increase performance and see if disabling the network adapters solves the issue, see here:

so I am pretty new to VMware, but I had been using 6.0 for awhile, but now I updated to 8.0, and the network settings are very hard to configure.

the virtual network editor (if you know what I mean) has VMnet1 and VMnet 8 configured, with #1 set to Host-Only, and #8 set to NAT. they are enabled, and have subnet masks configured. but vmnet0, which is set to bridged, has no connections. It says Automatic, and the only other option I have that I can change to is from a number of network devices, specifically a bluetooth, an Aethoros Network Adapter, a miniport wifi adapter, and a marvel-yukon ethernet controller. I have tried both automatic, and the Aethoros Network Adapter, but both of them don't work. I'll post a screenshot of the settings, as they appear. Can you suggest me with what I should try. This is very differnet from v.6.0 so i don't know what to do with it.
Thank You, and I would really appreciate some help on this!

When I'm using Snipping Tool to save screenshot for my post at 'show your WEI score' thread on the forum I noticed this (see attachment)

New here. I have searched the forums and have found several threads similar to my problem - bought a refurbished PC that used to be connected to a network, have a 3Com Fast Etherlink XL 10/100 TX Ethernet adapter bound to a TCP/IP, however, the properties are all "empty". I only have this PC, so have no need of a network adapter. I have a very slow boot. Figured out that by disabling the hardware in Device Manager the annoying network password box is eliminated. Have culled startup items to bare minimum and deleted LOTS of fonts I don't need (even checked load= and run=, but haven't looked into the sysedit yet) - when I try to Remove the Ethernet adapter in System (control panel), it reinstalls the software for the "new" hardware on startup.

Whew - now for my question(s), with it disabled in device manager, does Windows still load the driver info at start up or does it ignore it completely like it didn't exist? Could that be what is causing the slowness (4 minutes, usually) Since I don't need it, is there any harm in actually physically removing the card from the chassis? Also - I did some tweaking of my registry (VERY carefully and with LOTS of backups and help) and found absolutely TONS of keys referencing the old Win95 OS that I'm guessing was on here in its former life, as well as references to many other former-life business and office applications that no longer exist. Is there any chance that all of those entries could... Read more

This is a desktop PC with Windows 7 Home Premium, Service Pack 1, 64 bit.

Up until yesterday, the PC had perfect internet access via ethernet. When I came to use it last night - no access.

The situation:
The sys tray icon has a red cross and mouse over produces 'Not connected - no connections are available.'

The network Adapter is a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller and is showing in Device Manager, and according to the properties, is working correctly.

The network diagnostics troubleshooter finds the following - 'Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings'.

When I open Network and Sharing Centre and then click on 'Change Adapter Settings', there is nothing showing in the Network Connection.

If I click on Connect to a network, I get 'No connections available'

If I click on Set up a new connection, I get 'Windows did not detect any networking hardware'

What I have tried:
I have uninstalled the network adapter from device manager and then reinstalled it. Still showing as ok.
I have run netsh int ip reset" and "netsh winsock reset"
I have downloaded and installed the latest adapter drivers
I noticed a Windows Critical update had been done at 03:00 so I restored the system to before that update.

Hi All

Please can anyone help??!! I have done something and I don't know what!

I have just bought a new computer, a compaq, running windows 7, AMD athlon (tm)IIx2 245 processor, I had no problems connecting it to the internet, it has a wired ethernet cable which plugged to my Thompson router and worked straight away. I also have a Toshiba satellite L350-170 laptop (running Vista) with wireless internet connection. At this stage I was getting internet on my new PC and wireless internet on the laptop.
The problem came when I tried to set up a home network, I have done it previously (on the old pc running Windows XP) with no problems, however I am not sure what I have done, but I can get internet on the PC but on the laptop it is connecting to the wireless network but not the internet.
In the network and sharing centre it shows the laptop connected to an Unidentified network but then there is a cross through the line connecting it to the internet. In Network and Internet, Network connections I double clicked on Wireless Network Connection and then on diagnose, I got a box with the heading - 'The network adapter "Wireless Network Connection" does not have a valid IP Configeration.

I am a bit bewildered what to do, and thought it better to seek help rather than fumble around in the dark!!

You can download the M5630 WLAN driver and others from Acer Support: Downloads & Support Documents - Desktop / Aspire / Aspire M5630 but you'll need to remember which one your desktop was using as there are two listed at the bottom of the page.

The upside though is that if you choose the wrong one, it won't install.

Please bare with me as I know there are similar threads involving this issue however after spending 3 days trying to solve this on my own I am stumped. I recently reformatted my HD and installed windows. As with any normal format my drivers were wiped from the system. Unfortunately the driver cd given to me by the manufacturer (ibuypower) is defective and will not work with my computer. The main driver I need is the one to my network card that will allow me to connect to the internet. As it stands now my computer doesn't even know it has an ethernet cable attached, let alone it's wireless adapter.

My Motherboard is an ASUS P5N-E SLI 1.XX however I have failed to find the necessary drivers for my network card. I have tried both Everest and Belarc Advisor in an effor to identify the hardware but neither have provided results.

I am getting the generic 1394 Net Adapter when I check under hardware.

Please help me. I will try to answer any questions I can. I just need to find the name of the network adapter or another way to to connect to the internet so I can update my drivers.

Hi guys,

I recently did a full install of Windows 7 32 bit on my computer, from Windows XP 32 bit. When i completed the install i find that i cant connect to the internet. Troubleshooter informs me that the driver for the network adapter hasn't been installed properly. When i go into device manager there isnt even a Network Adapter tab.

As far as i can tell Windows 7 may not even be able to recognize the network adapter on my motherboard as it is very old (link below). The driver disks that came with my Alienware dont work on Windows 7 either. I called the manufacturer of my computer (alienware/dell) and they told me to go to the manufacturer of my network adapter, however, i have no idea how to actually find the manufacturer of a network adapter or how to begin fixing this problem when i do find them. Also, when i look on Alienwares sight they dont seem to offer drivers for this problem. Can somebody help me?

Hello. Set-up new Dell Studio 1555, running Windows7, to the wireless router (Cisco-Linksys WRT160N) that I purchased together and set-up was successful and had a wireless connection. I then installed Comodo Firewall and lost wireless connection and seem to have lost my network adapter in the process. Have since uninstalled Comodo. I've also un/reinstalled Linksys.
After running network diagnostics I received this message, “Reinsert your wireless network adapter. Windows can’t connect to Linksys because the wireless network adapter has been removed. Reinsert the network adapter and then try running again.” I then did a System Restore and still same problem. I have no idea where to go from here and how to reinsert my network adapter.

My System Hardware list has 2 Network Adapters. One is the "... Family Fast Ethernet..." and the other is "1394 Network Adapter". I confirmed that the first one listed is the only one in use to connect to the internet. I cannot find my other piece of hardware. But I'm not sure what it looks like. I suspect it is a dial-up adapter because there is a green telephone jack at the very bottom of the back of my PC (not in use). So what is a 1394 Network Adapter? What does it look like?

Although I've had home computers since 1984, I have not owned a laptop until 3 weeks ago. I naturally wanted to use it anywhere in my house, so purchased a D-Link N 150 router, which seems to work well (4-5-bar strength in most places) except on the porch, where the download speed drops from the normal 20Mbps to 4-6Mbps. I can improve that greatly by moving the router, which is in my basement office, away from the concrete wall where my desk and the router are currently located. But if I do that, I cannot connect my desktop PC (Intel mobo, E8400 Core 2 Duo CPU, Win XP-SP3) to the router via an Ethernet cable because the router will be too far away. So I was thinking about getting a wireless USB network adapter (e.g., the D-Link DWA 130) for the PC.

However, when researching adapters, I noticed that someone said that when they switched from direct wire to wireless adapter for their PC, the PC ignored the power option settings; would never go to Standby let along Hibernate. Is that a common problem with network adapters plugged into a PC's USB port?

My network adapter is giving me problems.

When I start up my laptop and is already at the windows, the adapter picks up signals and connects automatically to my home network. However, after a few minutes, my connection gets lost. I checked manually,

2. At network connections, sometimes the adapter is shown as disabled. (which i cannot enable it as when i do, a window pops up saying "connection failed"

3. I tried to un-able the firewall still doesn't help.

The queer thing is that when I restart my laptop, the connection is perfect again. Only for a few minutes like (3mins) then it gets disconnected again.

When trying to set this up I ran some sort of ping test that was sucessfull.

I know I could go buy a new network card for $10.00 though I don't want to spend the green when I'm gong wireless in three weeks. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Dear all

I'm running Windows XP on a Quadcore processor with integrated NIC. It used to have a static IP address of on the router.

It's been fine, until yesterday, when I found out that there was a later version of .NET. I tried to upgrade to .Net 3.something from 1.1, and did some Windows updates too. At a similar time, I tried to install a USB network connection on a different PC.

Upshot was that the LAN connection started flickering between 1.0Gb and 100Mb then disappeared completely. I went into device manager and it had lost its network adapter device. All network connections in the control panel have disappeared. When I try to run network connection wizard it refuses stating that I don't have a network adapter installed.

I reinstalled the drivers for the motherboard, the network card and the video card; I also followed Microsoft tech support http://support.microsoft.com/kb/825826 (7 pages) and finally I reinstalled XP, overwriting the version that was there before. I thought that would do the trick, but it hasn't.

The router seems to recognise the network card hardware - there is an orange light at the back of the PC when I plug in the network cable, and the router also displays a green light, but the PC doesn't refresh to show any network adapters. In device manager the network adapter is now hidden.

The PC is fairly new - I bought from DinoPc a couple of months back, but I would rather solve this without having to post it back ... Read more

While doing some diagnostics on my Lenovo T420 laptop (with Lenovo solutions center utility) I received an alert telling me that there were some (3) disabled MS network adapters. When I went to the properties feature of all three adapters I got the same message which I have attached with a screen clip below. The message says this device cannot start (Code 10) and I could not see any way to enable them.

Does anyone know what this "Code 10" issue is, and is there any way enable all of these network adapters?

Thanks for your interest

Put my computer to sleep before I left the house in the morning. I live in Fort Worth, TX where the tornadoes hit this week. There was no physical damage done to my apartment complex or my area. I don't even think the power went out because all my clocks were on time when I got home.
But I walked in and the computer was on and sitting at the windows login screen. (not how I left it..)

Logged in and everything was working fine except my internet (and my cable tv tuner). I have AT&T U-Verse Internet and TV. The TV and my PC run off the same modem but they should be completely independent of each other. So I sat on the phone with AT&T Tech Support for 45 minutes and the lady tried everything she knew and finally decided to mail me a new modem.

*Meanwhile* on my PC, I (now) have no network adapters listed in the "Change Adapter Settings" screen of "Network and Sharing Center". No network adapters show up in my device manager either. When using the troubleshooting function, I got a message about no drivers were installed. Also, the LED on the network adapter (next to the ethernet port) is lit up solid orange and it just stays like that. Plugging/Unplugging the cable doesn't change anything, the LED stays orange. I've tried different cables as well.

Hi All,

Details :

I just installed winXP as a second boot option following a thread on here to use easyboot. Everything went fine I can dual boot just fine. My problem is WINXP does not detect my network cards and I cannot connect to the internet. I downloaded the drivers on another computer and transferred them, when I tried to install the driver I got this error...

"This installation package could not be opened. Verify that the package exists and that you can access it, or contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package. "

Here is a link to the driver I tried to download and install

Toshiba Network Drivers for Windows XP, Vista & Windows 7

I downloaded an updated version of MSI but it did not work.

Download details: Windows Installer 4.5 Redistributable

I downloaded the winxp file

Here is my system details

Win7/winxp-sp3 Updated to newest versions (as far as I know)
Toshiba Laptop Satellete p500

I tried to remedy like I said but could not get any where. Thank you for your time.

~May the force be with you.

We have dsl internet. The dsl comes from the phone jack into the cable modem, then from the modem to a wireless router. I know the net and router/modem are all workign because I'm on my laptop right now.

We've had problems with the network adapter in our old desktop once in a while. It would stop working so I'd unplug it, plug it back in, and it'd work fine. The net on the desktop wasn't working the other day, but I know we still had a signal because it was fine on my laptop. The red light was on the back of the network adapter so I knew something was wrong with it. I fiddled around with it for an hour or so and could not get the red light to go away so I figured the card was shot. We got a new pci network adapter form radio shack and popped it in. The yellow light for "activity" was on, but the green gigabit light was not lit up. The computer recognized the adapter and installed the drivers so I don't think there's a problem with the pci slot. I know it's not the ethernet line coming from the router because I also tried straight from the cable modem to the desktop.

When I right click on the net connection it shows almost no activity, although it says it's connected. When I look in the properties the the ip addy and everything is blank. I have no clue what's going on, but for some reason I don't think this is hardware related.

After performing a comprehensive scan on my HP desktop with Norton 360, I was instructed to re-boot to finish the scan. Once completed, I tried to access the internet and was informed that my computer did not have a wireless adapter installed & configured and, that Windows couldn't start this hardware device because its configuration information in the registry was incomplete or damaged. The network adapter is a NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and the driver files are shown a "nvconrm.dll", "nvnrm.nvu" and "nvunrm.exe".

I have tried to find these files on the internet in order to re-install them on my desktop but so far have been unsuccessful.

I have 2 questions:
1) Does anyone know where I might find these files to download
2) Are there any other ways of overcoming this problem so I can connect to the internet?

You have to go to the manufacturer's website, download the latest drivers, and install them.

You can transfer the installers from a working computer to the problem computer via flash drive, CD, or other media storage.

I just bought a new computer. It has a Windows 7 home premium 64 bit Operating System. I got everything set up. I put the Cox high speed disk in my drive to get my internet set up, and it could not find my network adapter. I don't have a router. I am connecting straight from my cable modem to my computer. I have tried unplugging my modem a few minutes then plugging back in, but still can't reset and find my network adapter. My computer will not automatically assign an ip address. My computer shows that I have a network adapter, and it is working properly. If anyone can it would be greatly appreciated. If you need more info to help just ask, and I will do what I can to help.
