  1. Network adapters no longer working


    Hello, I recently accidentally bridged my ethernet port and wifi card, to fix it, I had used the network reset feature. Now neither of them show up in the network and sharing center or the network connections. They do appear in device manager, but have no drivers, I have tried installing the wifi cards drivers through the cd that came with it, but had no luck. My motherboard is an asrock 970m Pro 3 and my wifi adapter is an Asus AC1200 if that helps.

    :)

    Hi Sam,

    I realize that it must be difficult for you when things are not working as it should. Sorry to know that you are facing this issue. I will try to help you with this issue.

    You may try these steps and check the status:


    • Run the Network Troubleshooter and restart the computer to check if this helps.

    • You may try a different network adapter/connection type if possible.

    • Further you may also check for Windows Updates with a wired net connection and check for updated drivers for the network adapter.

    You will be able to solve some problems by running a troubleshooter that will automatically fix some common issues with Windows Update.

    Open the Network troubleshooter by following these steps:


    • Press Windows key + X and click on
      Control Panel.

    • Click on Troubleshooting and click on
      View All.

    Click on “Network Adapter” troubleshooter to fix problems with
    Network Adapter. Follow the on-screen directions to run this troubleshooter and restart the computer to check if this helps.

    Further, suggest you to follow all the steps from this article to check if that helps.

    Note: The steps to turn off a firewall depend on the firewall software you’re using. Check the documentation for your firewall software to learn how to turn it off. Make sure you turn it back on as soon as you can. Not having a firewall turned
    on makes your PC more vulnerable to hackers, worms, or viruses.

    Keep us informed to help you further.
