Used a driver checker/updater called DriverAgent and after the update the ethernet adapter on my 990fx ver 1 stopped working entirely! Some background, same issue existed on my Windows 7 install. After needing to wipe the SDD and installed Linux I noticed the ethernet adapter worked *odd* moved to install windows 7 again, and updated to 10.. Ethernet adapter worked again! awesome! However after updating the driver it fails to even see the ethernet again.
uninstalled adapter + drivers and installed multiple driver versions, both from Asus and the base windows.. It refuses to see the connection anymore.
Id reinstall Windows but i do require this for work, so next time I have a day or 2 off. However I just ordered a PCIe ethernet card from amazon so that will work as well. However id like to get the onboard fixed so I can just use that as a backup for computer issues. Any ideas?
