Windows 7: Windows Update kills my internet!

Windows Update kills my internet!

I recently got my Windows 7 Pro in the mail and I installed it last night. I've been getting back up and running and I've run into a bit of a problem.

I think I have it narrowed down. Windows update downloads some updates for my on-board Realtek network card and as soon as I restart my machine after the update, the internet won't turn on. The only way I could get it to work was to do a system restore to before the update.

Should I just skip that particular update and work with the old drivers?

here's a screenie of the driver it wants to install. (It's the Realtek one)

Windows update always creates a restore point before applying anything... do a system restore and see if you regain your internet...

like I said, I did do the system restore and I got the internet, should I just avoid that particular update?
