LAN Connection not working after updates or restarting computer.


I'm having this problem for a few weeks now and I can't seem to fix it.
Every time I restart / install updates (and restart) my computer my internet connection is gone.
I'm on a PC with LAN only, so that's wierd anyway.
Because of this I can't update my Windows via Windows Update because it needs to restart every time.
And I can't install Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition because it needs to restart during the installation.

I'm using NVidia Network Controller (nForce) but I can't get the type of the product. I downloaded the latest drivers for the nForce 9 series.
Every time I restart I need to do a system restore wich causes the problem that the updates are uninstalled (and Visual Studio).

Can anyone please help me with this extremely frustrating problem?

Thanks in advance,
Cas Cornelissen
