Went into device manager. Right clicked on each of the 8 WAN miniport entries and selected uninstall. They did not disappear from the list. The one single entry for ethernet controller did disappear. Closed everything and restarted.

Windows did autodetect new hardware but said it was unable to install drivers for this device.

Did not try anything else ie run driver install

Does the motherboard only have one PCI-E x1 slot ?

It has two 1x PCI-E slots, one 4x slot, and one 16x slot. Was thinking of trying them BUT...

It is a real Bear trying to pry the cover off the slot. Not properly punched out and frame around slot I opened up was damaged. PC owner will not be impressed I'm sure. Easier to remove the knock outs in an electrical junction box.

One skinned knuckle later. Installed the PCI-E card in the slot next to the 16x slot. During restart I diabled the onboard LAN. Windows recognized there was a hardware change but did not successfully install drivers. Nor could I. Even used the newest ones from Intel website. Same gren / yellow light pattern as before.

Is the interface between the hardware and Windows fubar?

Could be hardware issue if the Driver isn't installing.
