So in some miracle I managed to download the possibly correct networking driver so I'm able to access the Internet again. Should I be worried that I randomly downloaded a network driver that works? I took the opportunity to set the system specs.

Most welcome ... I think your Graphics Card is NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M ...

Use the Updates first before looking for the Driver ..


And Post back if you need any more help ...
