NIC 7781 not configurable

Hi all,

When I launch the configuartion tool I get a yellow icon and the message:
"At least one selected adapter has an unknown status, therfore, configuration changes involving the adapter are not allowed."

There are no open connections, but I can use the NIC.

How can I reset the status?

Re: NIC 7781 not configurable

Hello Jurgen,

Here is something to take a look at. I don't know which O/S you're running but this may help.


The article recommends a firmware update. I would personally recommend a driver update as well. If you are running Windows, I would manually update the driver from Device Manager, don't let the wizard do it.

You can find any firmware and drivers here:
