So I upgraded to Windows 10 and couldn't connect to the internet.  The error message said "one or more network protocols are missing".  After attempting some fixes I found online (my wifi still works...its just my desktop that won't connect), I decided to downgrade back to Windows 7.  After I did this, my error message was "local area connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration".  I cycled the modem twice & my network adapter is working properly (according to Windows).  What should I do?

 

Keep in mind the wifi. is still active.  Its just my desktop PC that can't connect.  My PC is connected directly to the modem, while all other PCs/laptops/devices in the house are connected via WiFi.  My internet was working fine prior to the upgrade.

 

Help!!!!

Please open the run dialogue by holding down the windows key and pressing the "r" key.
copy and paste the following into the box that appears:
ipconfig /all > ipconf.xyz && notepad ipconf.xyz && del ipconf.xyz
A notepad window with text should appear. Copy and paste the text into your reply.

Problem was a busted network driver.  Took my PC to a local computer repair place and now I'm good to go.
