    I have windows xp home sp1. When I go to safe mode, go to device manger, go
    to network adapters it shows about 10 adapters in it. When I try to
    uninstall it says " Failed to uninstall the device. The device may be
    required to boot up computer.". I know at least 2 of them are network cards.
    One is in my machine the other I don't know where it came from. My network
    stopped working is why I even looked there. Any suggestions would be very
    helpful. Thank you

    I wish that someone would answer this problem. I have checked all day and
    found at least 10 people having the same problem. Please help

    Given the possibility that your mysterious ten adapters are not the cause of the
    demise of your network, why not tell us a bit about your network, and about the
    problem itself.

    What are you trying to do with your network, and what are you seeing when your
    "network stopped working"? How long have you had your network working, and what
    changes have you made to it recently? What do you have on your network (how
    many computers, what make / model / operating system name,version,SP), are you
    connected to the internet, if so how (ISP, service type, network devices used).

    Provide ipconfig information for each computer.
    Start - Run - "cmd". Type "ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt" into the command
    window - Open c:\ipconfig.txt in Notepad, make sure that Format - Word Wrap is
    NOT checked!, copy and paste entire contents into your next post. Identify
    operating system (by name, version, and SP level) with each ipconfig listing.
