I tried to setup a VPN server on home computer last week and messed up my home network (3 PCs). The family is not happy. At this point, I would be delighted to just get the network back to a stable state. Here's what is happening: The wifi network keeps dropping every 10 min or so. And the "available networks" go blank. Windows network reset doesn't fix the lost connection. But if I go in to device manger I can re-enable the driver and it will work for another 10 min. Also, I noticed a bunch of network adapters in device manager that I never noticed before like: wan miniport ikev2, ip, ipv6, l2tp, network monitor, pppoe, pptp, sstp.  The Microsoft ISATAP adapter and Teredo tunneling adapter have "explanation marks" next to it. I ran windows repairs all-in-one which included resetting TCP/IP. No luck. I also reset my router to factory default and reset the firewall as well. Something I did apparently is triggering the network to drop the wireless and maybe it is trying to connect to another type of network.   So, I'm wondering what to do next.   Can I repair or rebuild the network stack?
