hello neshelle and welcome to Geeks to Go!

As I understand it , you have seen the Microsoft 6 to 4 Adapter (in Device Manager) showing with an error; is this correct? Can you tell us what error is showing when you open the window on this adapter? What made you go look in the device manager; was there some problem(s) with your system? And lastly, have you installed or uninstalled any software (especially security type software or VPN software) recently?

Thanks.

Use Windows Update to check whether new device drivers are available. Proceed as follows:
Open Device Manager
Search in the device manager for the device whose driver you would like to update and double-click on the device name. You may first have to enable the "Show hidden devices" entry in the "View" menu.
Switch to the Driver tab, click Update driver and follow the instructions
What are the effects of this problem?
This can have the following consequences:
The device may be unusable
The computer may crash often
The computer may go a long time without responding
Computer performance may be very poor THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS

Sorry for taking so long in getting back to you. After reading your description of the connection problems, I think it would be best if you had your system looked at for malware (sounds like a browser redirect but I hope I'm wrong). You can post on the Malware board and when they say you are clean, if you still are having connection problems, come back here and we will help you further.
