Network settings ok - driver version problem.

    Network settings ok - driver version problem.

    In my case an automatic Win-10-Driverupdate in February led to this problem: "Unidentified network" when tried to connect to the network. My network adapter, an usb to ethernet model, works fine. It use a “Realtek USB FE Family Controller RTL8152".
    After the last update it stuck with this error.

    Now I search for a newer driver and found it. Windows doesn’t update this driver version until today.

    I try many types of updates, e.g. automatic search, download manually, start setup within the network-properties, manual setup and many reboots, nothing works.

    After I removed/deinstall the driver completely, reboot, run setup manually, connect the adapter, it reconnected to the network again. So I need some hours to solve the problem.

    Do not worry about it. Real Tek does not make new drivers same as all other hardware manufacturers. Only time that thry do is if there is a major problem that can risk system security.
