Open your device manager hit the start button then right click on computer then select properties then select device manager.

In device manager, click the View menu and select Show hidden devices

Then hit view again and select devices by connection.



Then scroll down right click and uninstall the drivers listed below,dont worry these will be reinstalled upon reboot by windows.



Ancillary Function Driver for Winsock
Net BT
Http
Net Io Legacy Support Driver
Tcp/ip Protical Driver
Tcp/ip Registry Compatibility
NSI proxy Service

Each of these files will request a reboot after uninstall wait until the last one to reboot.


Run dns jumper.

If Rockmilk's suggestion doesn't help let's check permissions on the file:

Please download GrantPerms.zip http://download.blee.../GrantPerms.zip and save it to your desktop.
Unzip the file and run GrantPerms.exe by right clicking and Run As Admin.

Copy and paste the following in the edit box:


C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\afd.sys


Click Unlock. When it is done click "OK".
Click List Permissions and post the result (Perms.txt) that pops up. A copy of Perms.txt will be saved in the same directory the tool is run.

Hi Rockmilk,
GOOD news, the network is again up and running, after i uninstalled what you asked for (except 2)
Net Io Legacy Support Driver
Tcp/ip Protical Driver

as i could not find those. I did not ran the DNS jumper either since the reboot made the network come up and run... so i assume it is not needed anymore ..?


A warm "thank you" to you and to Ron, great support guys ! I have to admit i also learned a lot here !
Take care.

Glad it is working now.

As far as dns jumper I would run it if it were my machine.


Reason for running dns jumper below.

:::..............DNS-servers . . . . . . . . . . . : fec0:0:0:ffff::1%1
fec0:0:0:ffff::2%1
fec0:0:0:ffff::3%1


Also here is what explains the solving of your issue so that you understand why the drivers needed to be un installed in order to remedy the issue.

Have a good day. :thumbsup:
