When i install the following windows update i lose my broadband connection..Any ideas why,and is it a driver for realtek audio?..The volume is not what it should.
Realtek - Network - Realtek RTL8168B/8111B Family PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0)
It certainly looks like it's updating your network card driver. Maybe the update process is temporarily disabling the network card? But then again, it should re-enable the device after the update. Wonder if it's worth checking your Network Connection and TCP/IP settings after you've done the update? I'm thinking about stuff like your Proxy and DNS settings, just in case anything has changed, but then again, I don't think an update would really alter these. Just a few ideas off the top of my head, but not all that sure really.
Anyway, it looks like you've managed to undo the update, as you're posting here, (unless you're using another device) so personally I'd steer clear of the update in the future.
The update is optional and i undid it by system restore..my os is windows 7 home premium and the volume is only half as high as it was on xp?
I never trust windows update for driver updates. I have been stung twice, once with a tv card and once with sound card update. Both trashed the devices, had to dig out the original driver discs!
Best to go to the vendors website and check there.
