    Network Connection at Startup


    PC (Windows 10 Home) find the wrong network connection when at startup (Intel(R) 82579V Network Connection #2). If I ask it to restart or use device manager to scan for new hardware it finds the correct network connection (Intel(R) 82579V Network Connection). Netsh shows only one interface and one profile. How do I force the PC to startup using Network Connection?

    Hi truepharaoh.

    Not sure how you got two Network Connections, you likely only have one cable and it is the same network.

    I believe if you do a Network Reset all networks will be forgotten, including Wireless passwords. If you do a reset you may have to re-install any special communication software like VPN's.

    Start => Settings => Network & internet => Scroll to bottom of right hand side =>Network Reset

    some MB have two Eth. Ports ? one of mine does....

    Perhaps delete them (it) out of Device Manager and reboot and see if it is redetected correctly...

    There is also an Option in Win10 Settings under Network to Reset the Network Information

    I tried deleting the network connection out of the device manager with no avail. Also tried network reset with the same result.

    I disabled network connection #2 and when rebooted the PC found the correct network connection. I hope this is a permanent behavior. Thank you.

    Ok great :) ,

    well now you know what works , you can try deleting No#2 in Device Manager and see what happens after a reboot...

    If it doesn't work like I think , you may need to leave No#2 permanently Disabled.....

    and make sure the New Network is also marked as a Private network , not Public ...assuming you are at home and connected to your own Router....

    You should remove all wireless profiles and reconnect to your wireless router.

    Execute below command to remove all Windows stored wireless profiles.

    Code:
    netsh wlan delete profile name=*  i=*
    After executing this command you will have to reconnect to your wireless router.
