    Many of us have Realtek NICs and they work fine under Win 10.

    I've got about 6 of those. Very common network controller that is supported by Windows 10.

    Click on search and type network, then click to open Network and Sharing center. Click on Change adapter settings on the left. Right-click on your network connection and select Properties. Click on Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) and then Properties. This should be to automatic both in IP and DNS. If not, set it to auto and then click OK and OK. You may have to disable the adapter (right-click on it) and enable it again for changes to take effect. If this doesn't work, try updating the Ethernet drivers.

    I can see why someone thought my two threads should be combined but I was actually trying to figure out two separate things. I get that realtek should work fine on windows 10 with everything in place. My main question from first thread was where/how to find out which drivers would come with windows 10 if you were installing it on a newly wiped drive.

    I ask this because I will not be able to use other usb/hdd to transfer drivers to the clean install so I want to be sure it comes with ethernet driver before I do it.

    As for the second thread I figured it out.

    For Realtek Gigabit LAN adapters, the correct driver is at 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet -> PCI Express. To make sure, use Aida64 to see the exact model.

    Windows 3.1 to Windows 10

    if your current OS is windows 10 and you are wanting to clean install windows 10 on that PC..
    You can Export the current drivers from that Windows 10 OS - for use after the reinstallation of windows 10

    from command prompt(admin)
    type> md c:\Drivers
    type> Dism /online /Export-Driver /Destination:C:\Drivers

    Copy the C:\Drivers Folder to a USB
    Once you reinstall the OS - if the needed driver is not present within OS
    You can use Device Manager and point to the Drivers folder on the USB
    Dm should find and install the needed driver(s) from the prior OS

    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/driverview.html will show all your drivers. From this the ones where product name = "Microsoft® Windows® Operating System" are supplied by Windows. The others you (or your OEM) added.

    DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system
    he is looking to find out what drivers are included in the windows image (install.wim)

    He would have to mount the image and then run

    Dism /Image:X:\mount /Get-Drivers
    (X:\mount - being the location of the mounted image)

    Great tip, thank you. It even exported my VirtualBox drivers?
