    Problem running 6TO4 Adapter driver

    I've had a yellow triangle for awhile on the 6TO4 adapter driver for Vista
    Business 64:

    "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers
    required for this device. (Code 31)"

    I tried to do a driver update and I have the most up-to-date driver. I
    couldn't find anything in the event viewer and when I tried to report the
    problem to Msft I didn't get any fix solution.

    Any ideas? TIA.

    David,
    It seems that you are having problems with your current driver for your
    network card or chipset.
    Best place to start would be your PC or laptop manufacturer web site and
    check there for updated driver, forums, faqs.
    Second place would be the card or chipset manufacturer.
    I never use MSFT hardware drivers unless I cannot pinpoint its original
    manufacturer.
    Here is an example of the workarounds that some people have experienced:
