    Windows 8.1

    Mobo with 2 Intel LAN ports - Intel l211 & l217-V - Both don't work

    I used the upgrade tool to install w10x64. Installation went fine, I can use my computer and all. Problem is that both of my LAN ports don't work. I get the usual red icon in the taskbar that shows no internet. I went into networking and it doesn't anything.

    Went to driver manager and it shows both Intel Gigabit networks under the Network tab. l211 and l217-V. I have the Asrock z87 Extreme 6 that has dual LAN ports.

    1. I tried updating my drivers to the latest from Asrock with W10 support (and latest form Intel), but I get an error that says something along the lines of 'the Ethernet adapter wasn't detected' so it won't install. So then I went to device manager, uninstalled both and restarted. Retried installing, same error.

    2. I right clicked from device manager and tried installing manually, by selecting the file. This results in an error message that says 'You already have the latest version'. Ok. Dead end there too.

    3. I tried disabling Wake on Lan. Google results showed someone having a similar issue and disabling wake on lan fixed it. This did not work for me.

    So now I restored Win8.1 and I'm sitting here wondering how to fix it. I tried many different options, none worked. Anyone else have a clue on what I can do to fix this?

    EDIT: Fixed it. Uninstalled Cisco VPN in 8.1 then installed 10. Everything works now.
