No Network Card After Windows Update KB4088875 and KB4103718

Another round of updates and more issues to resolve, the work of us IT administrators is never done!

If you have a PC (Likely windows 7) which has suddenly dropped its network card after applying KB4088875 or KB4103718 then dont worry so has everyone else 😉

We’ve heard some horror stories of 60 servers going offline with this one but the fix so far has been:

  1. Reinstall the network card drivers along with any missing chipset drivers.
  2. If the above doesn’t work then uninstall KB4088875 and KB4103718, reboot and reinstall drivers again.
  3. If all else fails do a system restore to a few days previous. This method was found to be the quickest solution to most of the effected PC’s.


Hope this helps some of you out!
