    Missing Ethernet connector

    I've been having problems with my network drives which seems to have happened after a recent Windows 10 'update'

    In device manager I stupidly deleted a number of Windows adaptors under the Gigabit network connection.

    Now I just have the Red Cross over the Internet icon.

    Ive tried reinstalling Intel drivers but they stop at 'installing network drivers for Intel 82579v Gigabit network connection'

    I then get a message 'cannot install drivers - No Intel (R) adaptors are present in this computer'

    motherboard is is a Gigabyte X79 UD3 running F20 Bios. The network adaptor is onboard.

    I can't seem to figure out why the computer can't detect the adaptor.

    There is no ethernet controller in the device manager? And the network and internet page in settings does not give an Ethernet connection option?

    Make sure you are using the correct version of drivers from the Gigabyte site (or from the CD that came with the motherboard) as there may be different hardware type options. Also make sure no other drivers are missing. Try installing as an administrator.

    Thanks for the advice. I ended up doing a restore with a clean install of Windows 10. Everything fine now, just have to reinstall about 20 programmes!
