    Windows Extensibility Framework stopped working ???

    Hi,
    This is certainly a new one for me. I keep getting the error message "Windows Wireless LAN 802.11 Extensibility Framework has stopped working" . No other info is provided. Nothing much seems to change EXCEPT my Network icon has a red X on it and the pop-up list of wireless network connections has a rex X also.
    However I am still connected to the internet.

    A google search didn't turn up anything other than I see many people have the same issue.

    My Event Viewer shows numerous errors - WLAN Auto-Config ID 1003. When I expand I get this, none of which I understand. Anyone any thoughts or a fix?
    (Win 7 Home Premium, ASUS Laptop, 8GB, all updates current)
    Thanks,
    PBR

    I had never heard of that message before, but the most general advice that seems to be given is to update the network card drivers. Have you done that?

    You could also try uninstalling wireless card from Device Manager, rebooting and see if that cures the problem.

    When I opened device manager I see that I have 5 Network Adapters:
    1. Atheros AR8151 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)
    2. Intel(R) Centrino(R) WiMAX 6150
    3. Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 6150
    4. Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter
    5. Microsoft Virtual WiFi Miniport Adapter

    In addition there is this Network Infrastructure Device:
    Microsoft Wireless Router Module

    I have, as you suggested, uninstalled # 2 & 3 above (and reinstalled with a reboot) but the error message still appears.

    Perhaps I will call Microsoft support to see what they have to say. Thanks all for your help. If I can resolve this I will report on the "how to".

    Regards,
    PBR

    Hi ruirib, Yes I have checked all devices and in fact everything is already up to date. Can't find any reference in Microsoft KB either.
    Thanks,

    Give MS support a call, then, if you can. Good thing is that this isn't actually preventing you from accessing the network.
