I'm new to posting in community boards so don't eat me alive please.
I currently have the 16.12.1 version installed, and updating to 17.2.1 driver kills my connection to the internet whether it be through ethernet or wireless. I should note that it doesn't disconnect me right away. After installing the driver, I could play the new Mass Effect Andromeda through Origin, suggesting that I still had internet, also considering that I was still also able to open my web browser and surf the web. After I turned off my computer for the night, and came back to it in the morning only when I booted it up again was I not able to connect to the internet.
My computer recognizes both, saying that the device is working, and suggests that there might be an issue with the drivers. I updated my drivers for both, yet alas to no avail.
The only way I get internet back is through rollbacks to before I installed the driver.
I've read that whitelisting fixes the issue, but I tried to do that with Windows Firewall and I disabled my Norton as well and still no luck. Maybe I'm doing this wrong?
I've also taken a look at my ports, which seems to be open (either listening,established or time_wait).
Please help me out! I know a little about computers but this is beyond what I know.
Let me know if I'm missing anything!
