Hi,

Have you tried disabling and re-enabling the device?
(Right-click->Disable then right-click->Enable)

What kind of network device is this?

Cheers:)

Sorry bout that,

In 'Network Connections' (Accessible through Control Panel), it will display a list of all your connections. Right-click on the device that is giving you that error, click Disable. Once the device is disabled, re-enable it by right-clicking the device, and clicking enable.

Could you post some info on what kind of device we are dealing with? That will make troubleshooting a bit easier.

Cheers:)

Ok,

I see what sort of device this is now. You usually can not disable and re-enable a dial in modem like a NIC. And I don't have much experience dealing with USB modems, but I do have one question.

You are getting this error on the 'Advanced' tab of your modem's properties. Is this affecting your connection at all? Is it affecting any system performace? Are you trying to get access to certain settings on this tab?

Now that I think about it, because this is a USB connected device, it may not even have anything listed for the 'Advanced' tab, and that is why Windows is giving you the error. But this is a theory. Hang around for a bit, someone else may know more about these types of modems. Like I had stated, I do not have alot of experience with these.

Cheers:)

this is a longshot but it may fix the wmi as that's what's broken

Do you have a valid XP cd?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below

Start > Run > cmd then type

sfc /scannow (note the space)

let this run untill you get a message saying it is complete.

SFC - system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file.

If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.

Hi unbodi,

Please download the Microsoft Support Tool: WMI Diagnosis Utility. Once downloaded, execute and extract the files. You will then have a folder with a number of files; execute the VBScript file WMIDiag --> Depending on your System configuration, this file may run 'silently' in the background. It may take up to 15 minutes to complete (usually alot less), and upon completion it will give you a popup informing you that it is finished. Once you recieve this prompt, press 'OK'. Now, hold down the Windows key located on your Keyboard, and then press E. This will open up Windows Explorer -- in the Address Bar, type: %TEMP% and press Enter. In this directory, you should see a number of files; locate a text file which starts with WMIDIAG-V --> There should be two files in your Temp Folder that start with this; however only one should be a text file. Once you've located this file, please upload it to this website (it will have alot of text in it, so please don't copy/paste it, as it'll take up too much space :whistling:).

Thanks,
Dan.
