FYI, patch Tuesday took down a bunch of Win 7 network adapters

Our clients are calling in reporting random systems unable to connect. On first examination, all network adapters are missing. System restores are blue screening. Lovely morning so far.

So maybe I should hold off on that update that I got scheduled? lol

We determined that it only affects Intel network adapter I217-LM. Reinstalling the driver resolves the problem. Seems simple, but not in a financial world of disabled USB storage devices and it’s pushed with a GPO.

I feel your pain :anguished:
