I bought a Wifi Adapter for my HP Omen desktop computer because the built in one wasn't getting a good signal from my router. Now I need to turn off the built in one so the new one will work without interference. Could someone please explain to me how to determine which Network adapter I need to turn off? I have 10 listed:

 

1) Realtek Gaming GbE Family Controller

2) Realtek RTL8822CE 802.11ac PCle Adapter

3) WAN Miniport (IKEv2)

4) WAN Miniport (IP)

5) WAN Miniport (IPv6)

6) WAN Miniport (L2TP)

7) WAN Miniport (Network Monitor)

😎 WAN Miniport (PPPOE)

9) WAN Miniport (PPTP)

10) WAN Miniport (SSTP)

 

Thank you in advance!

You simply go to Device Manager then disable the one you don't need. I actually use BOTH  and machine should be smart enough to use the good one

As you can see, my machine has 2 adapter and they connect to my router at the same time but any work it will use the better one.
