Some more info on this.
According to him, before he installed OpenVPN, when he unplugged the
TP-cable the NIC got "Network cable unplugged" (as usual), but after
install+uninstall of OpenVPN, the NIC now disappears both from
ControlPanel->NetworkConnections and from DriverManager when he unplugs
the TP-cable. And it reappears when he plugs it back in.
And this was before he ran Windows Update and updated the WiFi-driver.
And he doesn't have any utility that handles profiles (and
disables/enables NICs depending on profile and link-speed, like IBMs
Access Connections like I have on my laptop).
