    Cant connect to Ethernet


    So i recently updated to windows 10, and i noticed i wasn't connected to my Ethernet anymore, so i had to connect my PC to the wifi. Under my "network Adapters" it only shows "Qualcomm Atheros 802.11 1/b/g/n" I tried connecting another ethernet cable, but nothing happened. Can anyone help me fix this problem.

    • create a new Environment variable called devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices and set it's value to 1 as follows:
      • Right click on My Computer and select Properties
        • Click on Advanced System Settings in left pane.

      • Click on the Environmental Variables button
      • Click the New button under the User variables for xxxxx" area.
      • Set the Variable name as: devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices
      • Set the Variable value to: 1
      • Click OK as needed to close all the windows you opened.

    • Open Device Manager (Windows key + X, select Device Manager)
    • Click on View then Show hidden devices.

    Now see if your LAN card shows. If yes, right click on it and select Update driver. If that doesn't help download the latest driver available from the Computer manufacturers web site or the LAN manufacturers web site.

    One of those should fix the problem.
