    Internet driver ???? no such animal, what you have there is "Network adapter". Best way would be to reload the driver for it, it should go back to defaults.

    You would go to the Driver tab and Uninstall the existing Driver.

    roll it back


    Hi Onedarklord,
    MS/your OEM installed your original drivers as part of your OS, your nearly there, your screenshot was on advanced not driver. if your drivers have been updated AND DO NOT WORK, you can roll them back see my screenshot, if there working properly leave them be.

    Just fastest and most practical way to do it. There's nothing to it, just uninstall, restart computer and it will install original one.
    Question is why were you changing those parametars, if something was wrong, it might be better to find another driver.

    You can also just uninstall the driver then just right click on Network Adaptors in Device manager and choose "scan for changes" which will reinstall the driver without having to reboot.
