I have been having endless problems with network access after recent Windows 10 updates. The first two times anything related to networks just stopped working completely, I couldn't even open network settings. The third time I got the "one or more network protocols are missing on this computer" error. I have tried numerous fixes, including TCP/IP and winsock resets, but nothing has worked except a system restore, i.e. undoing the windows update. I can't continue to not update indefinitely, has anyone been able to fix this reliably?
In a related issue, my computer says my network adapter drivers are up to date, but I wanted to check manually just in case. However, the official realtek site appears to be down - what's a reliable site to check in stead?
Thanks in advance!
