How to Enable or Disable a Network Adapter?

By Katty Avila |categories Network Adapters | Print Print | Email Email Tags: ,

Network adapters can normally be enable or disabled through their software.  When a network connection suddenly stops functioning, disabling and re-enabling it can repair the problem.  Disabling an adapter provides a convenient alternative to installing and uninstalling it.

  1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button >Control Panel Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Manage network connections.
  2. Right-click the network adapter, and then do one of the following:
  • To disable the network adapter, select Disable.
  • To enable the network adapter, select Enable.

If you disable the adapter, you have to enable it again to connect to a network.
