Hi I have a big problem here I hve searched everywhere done everything but nothing works so I really need help. I accidently uninstalled my Network adapter because I hade a problem with it (I unibstalled it when the Network adapter didn't work)(the network adapter was in the Show Hidden Devices setting). I have literally done everything I have even hard reseted my computer and updated my Bios and nothing of it worked. I have done every trick I can find on the internet and nothing of it works so please I would really like some help.

Are you saying you no longer have an internet connection on that particular computer..or…?
If it was compatible, or a working adapter, there is no way irt would be in "hidden" devices. Presumably you are looking in the Control panel?

Go here ROG STRIX B450-F GAMING and click support and then drivers and select OS bit type and then select LAN and download and install it.

While you're in there....update any other driver as needed.

If I buy the exact same motherboard and replace the now I have now will that fix the problem?
Not necsesarily, if the drivers are missing or the device is faulty, you may well have the same problem?.

It might be a BIOS problem, you can download the last BIOS update and install that!.


Also, download the manual if you don't know how to update BIOS.

Have you tried resetting BIOS if you did any overclocking which may cause a problem?. That is where I would start and work my way forwards!. :)

Also, if you can get a Live copy of a Linux distribution, you can test your computer hardware in Live mode and see if everything works including your network adapter!.

A link for you to view (one of many on YT). :)

You have already said you have tried all the available tricks. Did it include this one:
Right click the Start button. Select the Command Prompt (Admin) from the list,

Type the following command: netcfg -d.

Thiswill reset the network settings and reinstall all the network adapters., reboot your computer. It should scan whilst rebooting, for new hardware, and see if the adapter is there again..
