Windows 7: Bizarre Network Bridge Issue

Bizarre Network Bridge Issue

I'm still running the RC on my netbook, first off. I've had problems with upgrading and the lack of authenticity/2 hour shutdowns haven't been a problem yet.

However, I have run into these weird network bridge problems. When I tried to delete it (prior to RC expiration), it kept telling me there was an error when trying to edit the network bridge. So, I left it alone. I always used wifi anyway.

But, I needed to use the ethernet for my internet at one point. So, I looked up some forum posts on various sites and seemed to find a fix in deleting the mac bridge miniport from device manager. Well, I did that and the network bridge icon is gone, but it seems the actual bridge is still there. Both my ethernet and wireless card read "enabled, bridged." What's worse is that the wifi no longer works.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. This whole thing has me baffled.
