    Multiple Local Area Connections created at boot


    Hi - I have a new Dell laptop with Windows 8.1 - I work from home & connect to the internet via my home wifi network.
    The problem I have been experiencing is that my laptop connects to the internet at boot up but then disconnects for several minutes & then re-connects again. This coincides with the Network & Sharing Centre showing a number of Local Area Connections (numbered 3,4,5,6 etc) being created under Unidentified Public Networks. I have tried disabling the LAC's but they re-enable whenever I re-boot & I have the same issues again. My networking knowledge is very limited so
    I'd be very grateful for any advice on how to rectify this issue. Thanks.

    Those are not LAN connections. Those are just Virtual drivers that are installed by Windows 8. I am guessing that you have Hyper-V turned on. You can go into Network Connections in Control Panel, to see that it is showing those connections as Virtual adapters.

    If you can post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all from this machine it would be helpful.

    I have a file that can fix these problems but I'm not completely sure why all the extra ISATAP adaptors are showing up.

    Do you have an Ethernet cable plugged in?

    As requested, the ipconfig/all results are listed below. I don't have an ethernet cable attached - connection via wifi only.

    That did get rid of the extra tunnel adaptors but this Ethernet connection problem is very strange. I'm seeing a rogue wired connection showing a static IP which I'm not sure where this could be coming from? It's best to remove any static entries from the IPv4 properties of this connection.

    Can you go back into device manager and disable the Realtek Ethernet adaptor then repost the ipconfig/all.

    If you do a search, it comes up that Comodo is one culprit of the Virtual adapters being created. Himachi is another. What Internet security software do you have installed? Also do you show Hyper-V enabled in Services.msc? Any games installed? The other is VPN software.

    Sorry I haven’t replied earlier guys but I reached the limit of the number of daily posts I was allowed.

    Chev - do you mean disable the Realtek PCIe Family Controller? If so, I've disabled it & the ipconfig/all results are shown below.

    broe23 - thanks for your info. I do have Comodo installed on this laptop but don't have any games on it (is there a better AV/Firewall than Comodo that doesn’t interfere?). I've checked Services.msc and all references to Hyper-V show that it's not running (startup says Manual - Trigger Start).

    As already stated, Comodo is notorious for causing this issue. Uninstall it, and it should all go away after a reboot.
