Windows 7: How to a reset all networks in Windows 7 help?

How to a reset all networks in Windows 7 help?

I am having some "strange" issues with Network sharing in Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and I would like to know how can I RESET all of the networks and all of the network cards?

It seems that it all started when I changed my router, and upon the plugging in, it created Local Area Connection 2. When I uninstalled and then re-installed the Ethernet drivers, it then proceeded to create a Home Network 2.

I know I can "merge" these and etc... but I would rather just RESET the whole network setup and start from scratch. Of course, I do not wish to re-install Windows 7 from scratch. By the way, I am the only user on the computer and there are no other profiles.

Any ideas or help on how to do this?

Just go to Control Panel then the Network and Sharing center, look left and choose "manage network connections" at the connections window just right click on one of the connections and delate as needed.

I did, but I don't see "Manage network connections" anywhere. Just "Change adapter settings" and "change advanced sharing settings"

Hmmm.....

Okay - from there, I see my two ETHERNET port LAN connections showing. One has an X on it and the other one is the active one.

My only options on the menu are: Disable this network device, diagnose this connection, rename this connection, change settings of this connection.
