  • The issue could be solved by installing the latest version of network adapter drivers. After installing drivers, the name of the network adapter became Latin. No cyrillic letters are present.
  • This problem may appear in other instances if the network adapter drivers contain cyrillic characters as the name of the device.
  • Also, verify that the OS and OS language are fully supported per the System Requirements guide of the respective version.
