I scence you have two or more network adapters, when you go to control panel> Network connections > right click on network bridge then delete. You may have to be online to do this. When 'bridge' is deleted, your network adapters should work on their own pretty fine, although this only takes care of removing the 'bridge'. I dont think this will get rid of your outbound problem. To put 'bridge' back on, right click on one of the adapters,then click "bridge connections". 8')
I have a network bridge "installed" on my home laptop. It was not there previously (well a long time ago) but I made the mistake of running the network wizzard and that put that configuration on my PC. Can I get rid of this? How do I get rid of it? And if I get rid of it what if anything do I need to put in its place? It seems to slow down network (and internet) connectivity; also the PC seems to always be making an out bound request like every 30 seconds or so.
