As stupid as it may sound, I've also had some luck when installing the AI suite that is included with certain motherboards from some manufacturers. Of course it will have trouble doing much if it can't connect to the Internet. But you may be able to boot into the bios with the ethernet connected , some newer motherboards offer a function where theyll search for updates or drivers from inside the bios, I don't know whether or not the driver needs to be installed yet or not , but I would assume that there's already some kind of ethernet software on the motherboard chip, unless im mistaken as to how that function works.



Hotfix for TH1: KB 3140745 32bit: Windows10.0-KB3140745-x86.msu
64bit: Windows10.0-KB3140745-x64.msu

Hotfix for TH2: KB 3140743 32bit: hotfix for Win10 TH2 x32
64bit: hotfix for Win10 TH2 x64 (548MB)

Also, here is the Intel Ethernet driver as far as i can tell

Don't ask me what happened, tried the disc once more and walked off when it was installing and when I went back to try the stuff you had advised the b****y thing had connected. The only difference is I installed the realtek sound drivers but I don't know what difference that could make if any. regards and thanks for the prompt help.

You shouldn't even need to install anything , Windows already gets everything done anyway.

I haven't built one of these confangled newer systems yet, but for my asrock motherboards ,I would have to install the lan driver ,otherwise I couldn't get online for windows to update. But that may very well not be the case any longer

My "guess" is somewhere in the middle of everything, your computer rebooted. This "set" settings and told your router to assign an IP address. From there, you were good to go.

I note Ethernet is a very mature, stable, robust, communication, industry "standard". Ethernet devices don't need any special drivers. That's why I think my "guess" is right.

Depends on the ethernet controller and whether or not the driver ships with windows.

I had a lot of problems getting the lan drivers to install of the disc, I ticked them to install about 3 times but they didn't want to install. I must admit didn't have these problems with the Gigabyte boards.

Don't use the disk. Just use the chipset driver installer from Intel which should cover the network interfaces.

Depends on the ethernet controller and whether or not the driver ships with windows.
Sorry but that is not true. If it were, how can a computer boot into "Safe Mode with networking"? How can you even install Windows since networking is setup before installation is complete? How could you install Linux? How could you go out and get the controller's drivers if they were needed?

All Windows since (pretty sure) Windows 95 supported Ethernet natively.

Again, Ethernet is an industry standard. The ONLY reason there would be special drivers is if the NIC supported extra features (that most like no user ever need).

FTR, and before someone says it, we never, as in NEVER EVER use the disk that comes with motherboards during builds. Never! Why? Because odds are that disk is already 6 months old or even a year or older. So on all our builds, we visit the motherboard's website and check for new drivers. How could we do that if the motherboard's Ethernet controller needed special drivers for Windows?

We couldn't.

Same with my Gigabyte Z270 Motherboard both nics need drivers installed or you get nada

Installing drivers is a pain sometimes. It doesn't always go well. Ive had so many installs where I had to reinstall the drivers because of a cluster f

Wow, I use Gigabyte boards all the time and didn't need to. I know for a fact, natively Windows support DHCP networking. I can only conclude those boards use non-standard devices.

My apologies for assuming otherwise.

I typically find out what chip is used for it then get the drivers from the maker directly, asus doesnt update their drivers soon enough

I typically find out what chip is used for it then get the drivers from the maker directly, asus doesnt update their drivers soon enough
And I have a different philosophy as I have seen where motherboard (and graphics card) maker modify the drivers to make them proprietary. So I always recommend getting drivers from the board/card makers instead.

Haven't had an issue with realtek drivers or AMD chipset drivers directly from the site.
