Hope that helps...
I would like to try this, but I don't know how to uninstall drivers and then delete them.
I went into system settings and found the device mgr. I located network adaptors and there are 2. ONe for a NVIDIA nForce 10/100 Mbps Ethernet and the other is a USB Wireless Adaptor.
I went into advanced properties for the NVIDIA and went to properties.
Under General it says the device is working properly.
Under advanced, flow control is enabled, Interupt is enabled, Low power state link speed is enabled, Network Address is not present, Priority & VLAn says enabled, Speed / Duplex settings is on Auto Negotiation, VLAn ID is on 1, and Wake on is enabled.
Also, the driver is updated.
If I go to the top and click VIEW and then show hidden devices, a whole bunch of stuff shows up in the Network adapters column, and there are no yellow exclamation points next to any of it. Most of it is WAN Miniport stuff.
