    Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 Error Code 10


      I recently purchased this network adapter with the hope that it would end my wireless networking woes, but unfortunately thing's aren't working. I downloaded the latest software from the intel website for this product and I get an "error code 31" in the device manager. When I uninstalled that and just installed the drivers and software from the CD, I get an "error code 10," device cannot start. I've moved it to all three of the available pci-e slots on my motherboard and no luck there either.


      Current situation:

      Diver version installed

      The WiFi Manual Diagnostic software that came with the device fails at the "hardware test," saying that the, "wireless adapter is disabled or uninstalled."

      -The adapter is installed and enabled.

      Device manager displays "Device status: This device cannot start. (Code 10)"


      Not sure how much it'll help but system specs are as follows:

      Windows 7 64 bit

      eVga 680i sli motherboard

      intel e8500

      8 GB ram


      I've tried 2 different pcie wireless adapters from a different company and both were determined to be "defective" by the manufacturers tech support and were RMAd.. I'm beginning to think the problem might be on my end? Any advice would be greatly appreciated
