As described above, each time I start my PC, I get limited Internet connectivity until I uninstall the device and re-add it using Scan for Hardware Changes. After that it works great. I am however able to connect using my wireless adapter without uninstalling anything.
Bizarrely the connection seems to partially work. Steam signs in and I get updates on what my friends are doing. No game updates download though, and webpages fail to load. Even in the Steam app, store pages fail to load.
I make use of the Tunnelbear VPN. Installed it about a week ago with Windows 10, though the issue only started a few days ago so I don't think it's related.
- Disabling Windows updating drivers automatically before uninstalling device to potentially avoid broken drivers
- Manually updating drivers from Intel
- Uninstalling TunnelBear
- Fiddling with various settings as recommended in articles where people experienced connectivity issues
Fairly frustrated here as I have to assume a Windows update broke something.
Help would be appreciated, thanks.
