    How do you find your Network adapter?


    HI all,
    I'm trying to change my MAC address and once i am in the 'Device Manager' section, I click on 'Network adapters' and I have at least 10 choices. I have NO idea which one to click on.
    Nobody explains on any tutorial how to do that and I googled for hours but can't find anything.
    Someone said that your network adapter should have 'wireless' on it for those who are using wifi --I am, but I don't have a wireless network adapter option in my list.
    The ones that look the most likely to work have intel(R) .... at the beginning.
    Now is there a way even with the command line to figure that out?
    Thanks!!

    :)

    Issues with network adapters

    Hi Alfonso,

    To resolve this issue, we suggest that you run the Network troubleshooter when you switch from WiFi to Ethernet connection. The Network troubleshooter can help diagnose and fix common connection problems including clearing the network cache to obtain a new
    IP from the new network. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • In the search box on the taskbar, type Identify and repair network problems, and then select
      Identify and repair network problems from the list of results.
    • Follow the steps in the troubleshooter and see if that fixes the problem.

    If the issue persists, kindly try the troubleshooting steps on the following link:

    Fix network connection issues in Windows 10
    .

    We recommend that you try the steps on the Update the network adapter driver,
    Run the Network troubleshooter followed by networking commands, and Use network reset to reinstall network devices sections.

    Let us know how it goes for us to assist you further.
