Quite a few computer users are always busy with updating their net card drivers to the latest version, by doing so they think they can dig into the card's maximum potential and make the full use of it. Actually, now most of the latest network interface card drivers have this or that kind of bugs, and once you install them into your local computer system, your network adapter may work unstably. Therefore, after you update the network card drivers, if you lose the line while browsing on the Net frequently or your network often suffers some odd failures, you'd better roll back your network adapter driver to the original version.

To restore your net card driver, you only need to completely upload your latest driver from the local computer system, and then install the original one manually in the traditional way, or if you think it complicated and you can download some easy-to-use driver manager tools like Driver Checker to help you roll back this driver automatically.
