Windows 7: How to delete one and only Network Connection

How to delete one and only Network Connection

I am doing some troubleshooting and I want to completely remove my network connection. I remember with Windows XP when I did this, it would re-detect the network card and reload the drivers and settings after I rebooted.

I can disable the connection but not delete. How do I remove the connection in Windows 7 x64? Thanks.
