    Ethernet Driver Not Working After Win10 Installation


    Hi there!

    So I tried to update from Windows 8 to 10 last week.
    That didn't work for me, so I had to format everything and install Windows 10 afterwards.

    At first neither W-LAN nor LAN would work. Then I un- & reinstalled the W-LAN driver so now everything's fine except for my ethernet connection.

    - Adapter is enabled
    - I have un- & reinstalled the driver multiple times (even tried compatability mode, since some sites state that the latest version for AR8161 only supports win 8)
    - I was about a thousand times in the properties menu of the ethernet adapter

    The full name of the adapter is "Qualcomm Atheros AR8161 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)"

    I really do not want to lose all the stuff I already configured, so if some of you can help me with this issue I would be very grateful.
    Huge Edit:

    I just ran diagnostics on the ethernet adapter and after trying to fix some network protocols Windows prompted me with this.
    So I tried to fix this by entering
    Code:
    Dism.exe /online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup
    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    Code:
    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    Code:
    sfc /scannow
    in cmd which sadly didn't do the trick.
    Neither did entering
    Code:
    netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt
    in cmd (admin ofc) after editing the permissions for the "26" folder in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Control/Nsi/{eb004a00-9b1a-11d4-9123-0050047759bc} so the group "everyone" has "full control".

    Long story short: I am still stuck here w/ the "One or more network protocols are missing on this computer" -problem.

    What drivers are you using?

    The Windows Update catalog lists some that are supposed to support Windows 10 X64:

    Microsoft Update Catalog


    or X86:

    Atm I installed the driver from this driver pack because I wasn't sure about this driver here since the table states that it's not compatible w/ Win10.
    (I am running x64 btw)

    Windows 8.1, Win10Pro

    One of the best source of drivers I've used is Station-Drivers.com.

    Go to their site, select the Language of choice (English is NOT the default), then click the Drivers button, then click the Chipset Cards & Networks button/Qualcomm, then scroll down and click Qualcomm / Atheros.

    Then click Lan.

    Select the driver set you want and download them.

    Good Luck

    Tried
    Code:
    PnPUtil -i -a netl1c63x64.inf
    (Yes, I did "cd" before), got it to install the driver. Ezpz.
    Only problem: Internet is still not working via LAN. :/

    PS: I updated my original post, so maybe you got more information to work with now.
