I decided to update some of my drivers and decided to start with the Marvel Yukon Ethernet controller. I downloaded the latest version from Marvel which is 22.214.171.124. Prior to installing I uninstalled the old version, 126.96.36.199 and then installed the new. I rebooted and found that I did not have internet connection. I went to Device manager and found that Ethernet Controller #2 had the "!" on it so I did some checking. I went to Properties and found this message :see screenshot
I closed out of device manager and restarted the computer. After restart I had internet connection. I rechecked Device manager and everything was fine. Just to see what would happen I shut down the computer and restarted. After restart I did not have internet connection. I checked device manager and again I got the same message as in the screenshot. Again I just restarted the computer and again I had internet connection. Feeling that maybe the driver download was bad I decided to re install my old Ethernet Controller. Needless to say I had to uninstall the newer drivers and I re installed the old driver. I rebooted and again I had no internet connection and again I got the same message as in the screen shot and again if I just restart the computer I can get internet connection but if I shutdown and start I have no internet connection. I tried disabling the second Ethernet controller but that don't work even if I just restart. I uninstalled Ethernet #2 but windows just re installs it and I'm guessing I need both controllers or they wouldn't be there. So now I'm at a loss. I haven't tried just installing the newer drivers without uninstalling the old ones which I will try after leaving here but if that don't work can somebody give me a hand here? What am I doing wrong or what am I missing?
