    Anyone have this problem? I can connect to my wireless, and all other devices work fine but my windows 8 laptop won't connect to the internet or Ethernet because the media is disabled, I've tried ipconfig refresh renew winsock change adapter settings manually putting in the IP and nothing. Driving me crazy.

    It is a damn extension file that windows puts in there. Fuck let me try to remember what the he'll it's called and where it is. If you delete the damn file then your Internet will work again

    This is why I use Linux. Just upgraded to Ubuntu 14.04... Smooth as a baby's ass.
