Usually you can right click on the connection and have windows find one using the "Update this driver" button, or you can use your wireless connection to find one for your particular wired network adaptor.

Something went wrong with the driver which is why there were so many extra tunnel adaptors.

I doubt that a router would make any difference...
...but if you already have a router - then go ahead and try it.

If you do not own a router - then it is probably not worth buying one just to test.

What is the make/model of the cable modem that your wired network adapter is currently connected to?

On the computer, is there a green or orange light near the LAN jack when a LAN cable is connected?

Thanks for the make/model.
Grasping at straws here:
Do you happen to have a USB cable connected to that modem too? Please see this post.

Maybe manually downloading/installing fresh drivers from here:

You can try these steps:
Clean Install Windows 7
Or these steps:
Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Edit: I cannot say if it is going to help you with this NIC issue, but it should not hurt anything.

A clean install will fix the problem right up until you install that bad update again. This is a common problem by the way. But we really haven't tried everything yet.

If you can post your ipconfig/all here it may help to spot where the problem is occuring.

It looks like the DNS server wasn't showing up in your last ipconfig, but I'm not sure why.


In the mean time try resetting TCP/IP, winsock and flushing the DNS cache may help.

Lets try flushing DNS cache and renewing your IP.

Flush the DNS cache and restore MS's Hosts file ...
Copy and paste these lines in Note pad.

@Echo on
pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc
attrib -h -s -r hosts
echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS
attrib +r +h +s hosts
popd
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns
netsh winsock reset all
netsh int ip reset all
shutdown -r -t 1
del %0

Save as flush.bat to your desktop. Right click on the flush.bat file to run it as Administrator.

Your computer will reboot it self.
