Default Windows update today issue

I did the windows updates today (7 of them) and after I restarted my internet connection went down, uninstalled my nic drivers reinstalled them. to no avail, spent an hr trying to figure it out , device manager said everything is fine,nic working properly etc... the rest of my network was fine , laptops,voip phone . I just could not get my pc to connect, not even to my router. Problem was with my wired pc. I fixed the problem with a 3 day old sys restore point. I am scared to install the updates now until I figure out what went wrong. Anyone else have an issue with this update?

Installed all the latest updates in the lab with Windows Enterprise 7 64-bit and Windows Enterprise 7 32-bit, and at home with Windows 8 Pro 64-bit. All of them were wired. There's been no issues like that here either.

What does the Network and Sharing Center say about the connection?

I didn't have any issues with the update either, but I stumbled across this: Microsoft withdraws Windows patch over crashing bug | bit-tech.net
