    intel/windows8 loading the wrong network driver


    Sometimes when I start up my PC, my internet won't work because the wrong driver is being loaded.

    This is the driver that sometimes loads up 82579LM"



    Then when I do a "scan for hardware change", it'll load up the correct driver and my internet will start working 82579V:



    This happens with the default driver that Windows 8 installs and the one from Intel's website as well:

    I know this is a Windows 8 problem because this didn't happen on Windows 7.

    If it happens again then before rescan, just right click and uninstall it with delete option.
