    Hi, I've been using looknstop for quite some time and I've never had a problem with it until I installed windows xp sp3. My wireless card drivers also had a problem with sp3 so I had to install a newer version of them along with the new UDP-DNS rule to deal with one of the problem windows updates.

    Upon upgrading to sp3 and importing the dns rule, looknstop still worked fine. After upgrading my wireless card drivers though, the NIC stopped showing up on the network interfaces list and the 2 other looknstop NICs do not show up either.

    My wireless card is a D-Link GWL-520 Rev. B (Driver v4.1.2.151)

    Does anyone know what the cause of this could be?

    Hi,

    Yes, this happens sometimes when installing (or updating to) a new network adapter.
    You have to reinstall Look 'n' Stop, to get the adapters detected again.

    To reinstall, here is the procedure:
    - in case you have a custom ruleset, save it somewhere
    - uninstall Look 'n' Stop from the control panel (Add/remove programs) or from the start menu
    - reboot
    - this step is optional, but to avoid any issue, I suggest you check the driver are properly uninstalled with the following procedure (registry check with regedit):
    http://www.looknstop.com/En/faq_problems.htm#driver_remove
    - if you changed something in the registry reboot
    - install Look 'n' Stop, and reboot again
    - reload your custom ruleset

    Regards,

    Frederic
