Morning maxie...

OMG maxie I ended up getting such a migraine with all this last night and I fell asleep right at my PC...it wasn't til the middle of the night til I woke to this horrendous music on my TV...it was horrible lol...more like the guy was screaming nothing at all ugh

Ok so where were we...I ended up uninstalling all 3 of those drivers and I downloaded a newer updated driver from the Realtek site itself...I put it on a memory stick and uploaded it this way...very easy actually it did all the work. Looking at it I think I have everything back in my driver...BUT...something is still not working...and I don't know how to explain it.

After uninstalling/installing a new driver and it still didn't work...I really started to think that it was the Linksys Extender that this person at Linksys helped reconnect on Sat. When I initially called them to help me install it etc...I got a really nice young lady who took her time and went thru everything to make sure that both router & extender were being properly installed...turns out she ended up switching a few settings etc...and when she set up the extender she set it up with a wifi acct not the one showing a cable w/monitors which is what this guy installed it to...(my grandson pulled it out of the wall plug and it lost its connection that's why I had to call for their help again) but I kept trying to tell this guy that my laptop doesn't get hooked up to any cables so I wasn't understanding why he (the other guy) set it up that way and he was insisting on setting it up that way also...I get aggravated when someone keeps interrupting me on the phone and just doesn't listen to what I'm trying to say...I couldn't understand him very well to begin with and he kept saying the same thing over and over and listening to what I was trying to explain to him...so after almost 2 hrs of being on the phone with him I asked for a supervisor cuz my migraine was really starting to kick in...I was really gonna get sick at that point...so his supervisor comes to the phone and he's no better so I just asked to speak to someone in the USA lol...said they couldn't connect me I'd have to call back and try my luck...I hung up and turned to my PC and that's prob when I fell asleep...I'm gonna attach a photo and show you what it bothering me and I can't figure it out...maybe this will help...

Did you want me to do the step 6 part when you say "post a screenshot of the network adapters extended?"
