Working on a computer with a bizarre issue, somehow it's original Local Area Connection was removed saying the "adapter has been disconnected" and has been replaced with Local Area Network #2 on the exact same network adapter, The problem is in order for some software to function i need a static IP address already assigned to the old (vanished) LAC.


I sifted through the registry and found the original LAC and removed it, and then things got strange. It said i had no LAC at all, none. but i still had internet connection, And i still couldn't use the static IP i needed to use.

So i restored the registry settings i deleted and restarted, then LAC was back, and it was the original. But it was DHCP assigned and i still cannot use my static.

Scanned for viruses with mbar and mbam and found nothing.
