Hello !

Have you tried reinstalling "File and Print Services" ? Reboot afterward and test.

If it doesn't work, go to Device Manager, click view -> show hidden devices. Then open Network Adapters and delete everything that can be (some can't... but it's not an issue). When done, click "Scan for new devices" and reinstall all that's detected. Reboot and test.

Hello !

Disabling IPv6 was a good thing I believe, now remove all those 6to4 adapters and rescan. That should do it.

Thanks for your help, looks like I was heading down the right path, but the un hide thing is what really helped, took me 30 minutes to uninstall all the 4to6 adapters but once done and a restart all is well.

Went through all this including everything I could do to disable IP6. Fine for a while then it would start all over again. Found out this was upgraded to windows 7 probably from XP and it had an older pci NIC.

Got a Cisco AE1000 USB Wireless adapter and it works fine.
