    Problem after big Win 10 update

    After the BIG 3-4GB update some days ago my printer driver was gone.
    I reinstalled it and thought all was good ... but after booting up next day
    my network (ethernet cable) wasn´t working! I ran the diagnose test and
    got follwing message "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol
    stack to the network adapter". And then I've tried everything I could find
    on Google ... reinstalled Ethernet card drivers, disabled some programs and
    antivirus ... as a last try I did a system recovery to the point before installing
    the printer again ... and the network was working.
    Then of course I had to try reinstall the usb-printer .... and the network was down
    again, simply deleting the printer didn't make any difference! I now have to
    choose between being able to use the Internet or the printer!!!
    Anyone experienced something like this? I would be grateful for some
    well-thought-out answers!

    Hi, wecome to tenforums. Hmm, no solution, just wondering what happens if you disable Windows automatic driver update?
    Device Driver Automatic Installation - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    more here:
    Take Back Control Over Driver Updates in Windows 10

    When you reinstall your printer driver, can you confirm what the Dev Man shows for your network card
    - is the driver still installed but disabled?
    - is the driver uninstalled?

    What happens if you disable 'Allow computer to turn off this device' in driver properties, power management?

    So this is what I understand:
    - when you install your printer driver, your internet connection fails.
    - both drivers are installed
    - your NIC driver is enabled
    - you cannot disable ''Allow computer to turn off this device'' for the NIC driver.

    What happens when you try to do that? Nothing?

    It might be interesting to try running this script, which used (when I had an occasional problem my NIC not working after resuming from hibernation in Win 8):

    It's a compiled very very small autohotkey script- basically 2 commands to power down, power up.
    After I ran it, my ethernet internet connection worked again.

    Whether this will help you.. well, you can only try. Unzip it and run the exe file.

    disable & enable nic to enable internet after resume.zip

    I´ve found this solution, and it worked!
    Go to Control Panel> Network and Internet > Network Sharing Center
    Click 'Change adapter settings' in left pane.
    Right click your adapter. Select 'properties'
    There will be a box headed 'This connection uses the following items.'


    Client for Microsoft Networks
    QoS packet scheduler
    File and Printer Sharing
    Internet Protocol v6
    Internet Protocol v4
    Link-Layer Topology Discovery Mapper I/O driver
    Link-Layer Topology Discovery Reminder

    Uncheck everything else.
    Go back to the Network and Sharing menu, disable and re-enable the adapter. That should work.

    These were the ones I unchecked
    General NDIS
    Microsoft LLDP
    Jumpstart Wireless
