Hello--

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655-S5069 that was recently upgraded to 10 and subsequently downgraded to 7 due to performance problems. After downgrading, both wired and wireless internet connections stopped working properly, and the drivers for the Ethernet card and WiFi adapter were no longer recognized. I managed to get the drivers/hardware reinstalled and recognized by device manager. The WiFi also recognizes wireless networks, but when I try to connect, it says "Limited Access". Wired connections seem to be completely unrecognized. Also, when I troubleshoot the problem, it tells me it's a driver problem, despite trying several different copies of drivers. I've also tried turning off the firewall, uninstalling the antivirus program, and deleting the VPN registry entry that seems to be the common culprit, but to no avail. I've searched the forum/Google, and can't seem to find anyone who has had this much of a problem with it. Thanks for any/all help!

Well, never mind lol. I went through the registry and found the entry manually. Internet is fine now.
