I uninstalled (removed)a wireless network card and thought nothing of it until I tried to use my ethernet port.
I have looked in device manager and set it to show hidden devices and noticed two problems.
One is ras async is greyed out and also the network controller is greyed out. I have identified the network controller as the absent wireless card?
I have tried to uninstall both but it says they cannot be deleted as they maybe used to boot the pc.
I would like to (unless advised otherwise) completely delete the network controller and then uninstall/reinstall the ras async adapter.
Is there an easyish way of doing this. So far I have tried to do it via safe mode but still no joy.
A few solutions found give a long winded registry fix but i have limited experience of tampering with this, but if this is what it takes I will do it.
I have already exported the reg to a memory stick.
What approach should I take.
