Windows diagnosis shows that Network adapter driver has been crashed. Driver is Realtek RTL8139/810x Family Fast Ethernet NIC. I tried to update the driver and after that I am not able to connect to Internet from my Windows 7 Computer. Please Help. Thanks in advance.

Perform trouble shooting from the Windows action center and fix the issue. If it did not solve the issue, try updating the driver.

It didn't solve the issue. Will restoring the computer to a previous restore point, solve the issue? Can you please provide any alternative solution?

Restoring will solve the issue. But the issue can be better solved in other ways. You can manually download the driver and install it.

Download Driver.

Three ways to solve this issue, first is perform a system restore, perform driver roll back and download the driver from the manufacturer's website and install it manually.

System restore will restore all updates performed down to the restore point. System restores step by step procedure is available in this site. Just have a time for searching it.

Driver roll back will restore the previous driver installed for your hardware. Just open your hardware profile then double click the hardware and go to the drivers tab then click the driver roll back then apply.

Downloading the driver manually is your last resort. This is the best solution because whatever updates that your hardware manufacturer has, it might be included on the driver you are downloading. Just search your device on Google and look for the site of your hardware manufacturer on the search result then find the download on the site. Download the driver then install.
