I can't find network adapter but it is installed

Answers :

If you cannot find the network adapter, the system does not have the appropriate driver for the device. You probably have a yellow icon in the other category which indicates the system does not know what the device is. I understand that the device is plugged into the computer.

Check with your device supplier for the appropriate drivers and support software to solve the problems.

I figured I'd try and get it up and running with my Road Runner Turbo before i worried about the Wireless Adapter. You
