    I have problems with 82579LM and 82579V Gigabit Network Adapters and can't connect in Windows 10




      I started my Windows 10 PC and got a blue screen message:


      IQRL not less or equal ... Windows will fix this and restart.


      After that I can no longer connect to the internet.

      I get a "Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter."

      ... message.


      I have searched high and low in forums and tried all sort of things, but no result.


      ipconfig gives a black screen. It doesn't connect.


      I do not see a "Network Reset option in Windows 10, so there seems to be something wrong there as well.


      I had a 82579LM which was working, but I thought I try an update. Now I have both, an 82579LM (older) and an 82579V (newer) network adapter on my computer.


      I can't seem to uninstall them, they just keep coming back.


      The 82579LM is now greyed out and right click says "error getting adapter info"

      I can't reinstall the 82579LM because it says there already is a newer driver and I need to unintall that first.


      When I uninstall the 82579V driver and do a restart, it is back. I can't get rid of it.

      Do the two driver interfere with each other?

      How do I reset this?


      I have many other things listed, but I don't have a clue what they are?


      Any help? Desperate!
