Hi, tech noob here,
https://www.windows10forums.com/threads/no-ethernet-drivers.259/
I found this thread and I'm in exactly the same boat as the OP of the thread (Besides running a different MoBo) and whilst I've tried to follow it I can't find the drivers Im after [incompetence] and I dont know what I'd need to do after I had extracted them to my desktop.
Any help on this topic, helping me find and install the drivers, would be very much appreciated!
Thanks in advance :)

Hello and welcome to the forum. Without knowing anything about the computer, motherboard or network adapter (integrated or add-in) it's difficult to suggest a plan.
Right click the Start Button and choose Device Manager from the context menu.
Expand network adapters, right click the problem wireless adapter and choose properties
Select the details tab change the Device description drop down to Hardware Ids
Right click a line in the "Value" box and choose select all
Right click again and choose copy
Paste that information into your next post
Should look something like this
Code:
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_E0001458&REV_03
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_E0001458
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&CC_020000
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&CC_0200
Paste that information into your next post.

NOTE: Depending on the hardware and how Windows 10 is attempting to identify it, the problem hardware might be listed under "other" or be shown with an icon indicating a problem in device manager and may not be categorized as a wireless adapter yet.

Some details and specifics regarding your system might also be helpful.

I thought you said that it involved the wired adapter??

That's an Atheros AR938x and the driver is here https://www.atheros-drivers.com/qualcomm-atheros-download-drivers-nr-311-with-code-4351.html

IF the problem is with the wired adapter then you need to do the same thing with that instead of the wireless.
Ok great, i now have the option for a 'killer e2200 gigabit ethernet controller'. I assume this is what im after?
I'm getting a code 10 message telling me the device wont start though
