I have just acquired a Netgear ADSL Modem Gateway for my homework network of three PCs, all running XP Pro. Netgear Tech support told me to delete the Network Bridge MAC Bridge Miniport from Network connections. My son's computer, however, refuses to allow this ('an unexpected error occurred while configuring the network bridge'). His is the one which is playing up with dropped connections (mostly while playing games). How can I get rid of this disabled but undeletable file?
The PCs are networked wirelessly. The Netgear Tech support guy did say it was an XP 'habit' of putting in network bridges where they weren't needed. The problem with doing a system restore is that the bridge has been there for months so a recent restore wouldn't get rid of it, would it?
