Windows 10: Tried to update NIC driver to Win 10 driver now all NICs are missing
On the one hand: Have you tried reinstalling the ethernet and wireless drivers? You should be looking if there's an uninstaller under Programs and Features first before trying so from Device Manager. Using DM may not actually remove the driver files - depends on how the h/w level driver was written.
On the other hand: Since NO network is showing up and Device Manager show no problem, is probably not an individual driver issue tho would still give uninstaller a shot if you haven't yet
I would next try using DISM to try a repair
DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums
You may have a Winsock issue too and need to reset it , more info here :
and a small program to do it for you
WinsockReset Foolish IT
from the admin command prompt
netsh winsock reset catalog
netsh int ip reset
then restart the computer
the other commands are:
netsh int ipv4 install
netsh int ipv6 install
you could try the system file repair command, if the preceding does not work,
Or an Inplace Repair install of Win10 which will Refresh all Windows Files
Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade=Installation and Setup
Retired from the grind
That information is in the Tutorials area at the top of the page marked "Tutorials". It is a Service for networking that is a part of why the missing protocols happens. It was supposed to be fixed with the Anniversary edition was released.
