I'm not sure what causes this to happen but someone at Technet fixed the problem by deleting the extra adaptors entry from device manager.

That's the part that works. But first of all on device manager you must press 'view' -> 'show hidden devices'. After that small list of 2 or 3 devices is growing to about ~200devices. Unistall all of them (some can't be, don't bother). Then press right mouse button at any adapter and check 'scan for new devices'. After that it's working perfectly
