i have a Fujitsu S6010 notebook and a Zonet ZEW1000IU PCMCIA type II 802.1b wireless adapter.

my notebook is running on windows XP professional and i'm using active sync for my pocket pc. my notebook is connected to the internet through LAN.

after i've installed my wireless adapter and rebooted windows, an error dialog popped up immediately after i log in into windows.

the message was:
  Mobile device Properties
  the tcp/ip transport was not installed. xxxxx......

after ignoring the message, i realized that all my networking devices couldn't work properly. i can't access to the internet anymore... my notebook couldn't get an IP from DHCP server either. when i tried to renew the IP (with ipconfig /renew), an error occurs and it said that the tcp/ip protocol was not installed. i've checked the LAN adapter properties, the tcp/ip protocol is already listed and checked.

besides, my wireless adpater can detect the available networks around me, but can access because of the same tcp/ip error. i've used the latest device drivers.

after several trial and error, i found out that the pop up message during the start up was because of the active sync. somehow, the wireless adapter installation has corrupted my window's tcp/ip.

what should i do, in order to use my wireless lan adapter without interferring other devices or cofigurations?
