Disregard previous post. I figured out how to delete previous verson and have installed new one as you requested.

OK sorry about that it was worth a try
The Intel driver is not really designed for integrated chips on the motherboard which is what you have, but your board site does not offer a newer driver and will not do so.
So you are stuck with the old driver from 2011
It will not I think help if you were to uninstall the driver that you have and then try the Intel driver, as I do not think it will work.

I KNOW you do not want to go to 10, but you have to accept that Windows 7 is going to become more difficult to work with
AntiVirus apps will increasingly cease to support 7, as they will gradually, as some have already no longer offer security updates to their AV program for 7

I think you will just have to accept that 7 will become an increasing problem area overtime.

I am NOT suggesting that your present difficulties are due to this problem


I do not know what is causing the difficulties

Please test it for video problems on YouTube as you had and any other problems you encounter

I am signing off now and will see how things are going for you about 1900 hrs tomorrow

DO NOT FORGET to install an AV

Good so I was wrong - it appears re the Intel version of the driver
See if it still drops connections

Back as stated in previous post 1900 hrs (hopefully on time )

Incidentally, I removed Internet Explorer from my taskbar (closest I could get to eliminating it) and downloaded Edge. I can't make head nor tails of it....I spent an hour trying to make Google my home page instead of Bing but finally gave up. This has me wondering if the Windows 10 computer I bought and then returned was set up with the Edge browser and maybe that's why I was having so much trouble with it. If I switched to Windows 10 operating system and selected Firefox as my browser, would it look familiar and easier to operate?

How are we doing for losing internet connection and for video on YouTube with then updated driver
Is the tunneling adapter still showing with the warning

I will have to leave for an hour or so shortly, unexpected visitor to see me about 1930

I will guide you as to setting google as home page on Edge which is what I have., when I come back

What version of driver is shown now for the ethernet it was as you know 11.13.51.0

I tried that Edge browser and it is horrible. I've come to the conclusion that my dislike for Windows 10 was because of the Edge browser.

I'm going to switch to Windows 10 with Firefox browser. I looked at the procedure for changing from 7 to 10, but it's more than I can handle. My printer's out of ink, and the process is too complex for me to do it from memory. I'm going to turn the computer over to a technician with instructions to change it to Windows 10 with Firefox browser.
