  1. My 2nd network adapter stopped working after certain windows update.


    I have 2 network adapters, the one built in in the motherboard and another PCI D-Link adapter. Both have been working fine until a few months ago the d-link stopped working after one of the windows updates, in the device manager the one in the motherboard is working fine and the d-link has a yellow error sign "Cannot find enough resources that it can use (code 12).

    I have been searching on this issue for months and tried countless fixes like uninstalling,changing driving etc... but i can't for the life of me get it to work anymore.


    Any help would be appreciated My 2nd network adapter stopped working after certain windows update. :).


    Thanks,

    Ashraf

    Hi Sam,

    I realize that it must be difficult for you when things are not working as it should. Sorry to know that you are facing this issue. I will try to help you with this issue.

    You may try these steps and check the status:


    • Run the Network Troubleshooter and restart the computer to check if this helps.

    • You may try a different network adapter/connection type if possible.

    • Further you may also check for Windows Updates with a wired net connection and check for updated drivers for the network adapter.

    You will be able to solve some problems by running a troubleshooter that will automatically fix some common issues with Windows Update.

    Open the Network troubleshooter by following these steps:


    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Control Panel.

    • Click on Troubleshooting and click on
      View All.

    Click on “Network Adapter” troubleshooter to fix problems with
    Network Adapter. Follow the on-screen directions to run this troubleshooter and restart the computer to check if this helps.

    Further, suggest you to follow all the steps from this article to check if that helps.

    Note: The steps to turn off a firewall depend on the firewall software you’re using. Check the documentation for your firewall software to learn how to turn it off. Make sure you turn it back on as soon as you can. Not having a firewall turned
    on makes your PC more vulnerable to hackers, worms, or viruses.
