Question about network adapters in device mgr

Unread postby rmrrar » June 28th, 2015, 8:06 pm

Hello, I was trying to get my computer to sync to my Ipod but it wouldnt long story short I went to device mgr and scanned for new hardware. I also checked the option the show all hidden devices under view. My question is I originally only had the realtek adapter. Now I see many more network adapters is this normal? There are 13 total, 8 different WAN miniport adapters and also microsoft teredo tunneling adapter. I only use this computer for home personal use and do not share with anyone. Any help would be great. Thanks rmrrar.

Yes, it's perfectly normal to have multiple WAN Miniport adapters and the Teredo adapter.

On my machine, out of the 14 network adapters installed, 11 are usually hidden.

The following page gives instructions for how to sync an iPod with a PC ... https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201253 ... and includes a number of things to check and try if you're unable to sync.

Ok thanks, I disabled most of them and it seems like my pc is moving a bit faster now. As for the Ipod I think it is a problem with the hard disc as none of the troubleshooting tips helped. thanks again. rmrrar

Sorry none of the tips worked, iPods are really outside of my experience, so I can't really offer much more. If I do come across anything new that I think might help, I'll post it here.
