SBS 2011, Dual onboard NICs, Realtek PCI NIC.  The PCI NIC works fine and has been working fine.  In an effort to "fix" the onboard NICs, I downloaded a driver.  When it didn't work I uninstalled it.  After that the working Realtek (PCI GBE Family Controller) no longer shows up in Network Connections.  However, it still works and shows in Device Manager.  

When asked if I wanted to delete the driver software, I chose no.  Now that I can't see it in Network Connections I am unable to adjust the IP which was the whole point.

Any ideas?
