My laptop has had recent problems with its connection such as being stuck at "acquiring network address". It will sit there for 10-20 mins or until I shut off the computer and it never goes away. I did some research and found out that there was something in the registry. I followed the steps and Microsoft told me to delete a registry key. I did that and restarted. Now nothing is connected and the only thing in the network connection folder is Local Area Connection. I also did not back up the registry, which now I realize was not smart. I tried to re-enter the key, identical as it was but was unsuccessful.
The key which I deleted was this path in the registry.
Local machine--> system-->currentcontrolset-->services-->symtdi-->dependonservice
