vEthernet adapters left after uninstalling Hyper-V

If you have ever installed Hyper-V, you may have noticed left over vEthernet adapters.   You may also noticed that you have issues with TCP/IP.  Here’s what to do.

Open a command prompt or PowerShell as an Administrator

Type netcfg -d



This will uninstall all of your adapters (including hidden) and reinstall just the physical adapters. Make sure you have drivers available – just in case.

You may want to also reset TCP/IP settings.

netsh winsock reset
netsh int ip reset
netsh interface ipv4 reset
netsh interface ipv6 reset
netsh interface tcp reset
netsh int reset all 
ipconfig /flushdns
nbtstat -R
nbtstat -RR
netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
netsh advfirewall reset
