    Network Card Issue After running Network Adapter Troubleshooter


    I ran the Windows 10 Network Adapter Troubleshooter for my Dell Inspiron 3671 - and I discovered that there was a problem I couldn't fix - That the "Ethernet cable is not properly plugged in or might be broken" because the McAfee VPN network adapter couldn't be scanned.The Diagnostics said to "plug an ethernet cable into the network adapter 'McAfee VPN'."How do you plug into that specific adapter? Shouldn't my ethernet cable for my PC - using the Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller - take care of connecting it to the McAfee VPN?The McAfee Adapter is TAP-Windows Adapter V9. The other adapters
