What is your LAN setup, can't you use dhcp - static ip is a must-have?

Open an elevated command prompt and type in the following: netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
Restart the computer

After this change you will need to reconfigure the tcp/ip settings so write them down or use dhcp. In the c:\resetlog.txt file you can see what exactly happened.

I guess first you need to know what the yellow mark mean. It means nothing more than limited connectivity. So this has nothing to do with your reinstalling the network adapter. Once you will have good network connectivity the yellow mark wil automatically go away.

And one more thing DHCP or manual configuration won't do anything as they are simply a way of how you want to configure your network adapter. Yellow mark is a connectivity issue and not a configuration issue.

Thanks

looks like you may have an issue with your LAN cable or your cable patch lead from your wall-port number to your switch -- more likely you have manually set your connection speed/duplex to one setting on your NIC or switch port, or both.  Could be a typical mis-match error, you may also have some luck by de-selecting IIPv6 if you do not require it.

Usually most NICs are set to Auto, and the switch ports are usually the same, you need to check.  Go into Network and Sharing Centre, then click Local Area Connection, then Properties, then Configure and then the Advanced tab.  Your looking for the Link Speed & Duplex settings, which should normally be on Auto Negotiation, usually only server NICs and switch ports are manually set.

you can easily test your cabling by using another system in place of the one with the fault, if it gets the same yellow icon, you know its a cable issue, if not then its likely a config issue, or a faulty NIC.
