    since d/l Win 10 ... no Internet


    After using Windows 7 for years, I was finally convinced to d/l Win 10. On my main computer, (this one) all is well now; initially Win 10 could not d/l updates, but I got that sorted.

    However my second conputer (Gigiabyte GA H61M S2PV, 4Gbram, i3 2nd gen processor) has not fared as well. I continue to get the following error statement, " there might be a problem with the driver for local area connection adapter".
    I have flushed the DNS server, then I replaced replaced the GByte ethernet controller (NDID 6.20) but all to no avail.

    I do apologise for the lenghty description, but I am completely lost for what to do next other than return to Win 7.

    Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

    win 10-backup

    I did not install win on the back up as I had a neighbor[ I.T. guy] who after I installed the Drive came over and installed Comodo for the back up. He has since been transferred to Georgia, and I did not create a sys image & he did not mention it.

    Now when I d/l the "media creation tool" I do not get "run as Administrator". What I get is License terms>upgrade this pc now> and then it starts to d/l win 10. I tried twice but stopped the d/l , so here I am & by the way thanks again for the reply.

    Give this a try. Go to Device Manager > uninstall the GBe driver > reboot. Windows will install the appropriate driver for GBe upon boot.

    go into the driver and click update driver>browse my computer for driver software>Let me pick from a list of device drivers...Tell me what you have...The original driver should be listed there, that's the one you want to use
    let me know how it goes, you need to go down the list if there are a few , install each one, one by one until its up...are there a few of them?

    Thanks for replying AnEdge

    The are 6 drivers listed and they are:-
    Atheros AR 8151 PCI-E GB Ethernet Controller ... (x 2)
    Qualcom AR 8151 PCI-E GB Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30) (Microsoft) ... (x 2)
    Qualcom AR 8151 PCI-E GB Ethernet Controller (Qualcom Atheros) ... (x 2)
    I have installed all 6 and no Internet.

    Just to confirm, the cable is plugged in and the Internet plug flashes as usual.

    all installations have returned the same dialogue box as originally quoted.

    Went to Gigabyte website, search for GA-970A-DS3 support, they have a specific driver for Windows 10 especially for LAN driver. See: GA-970A-DS3 Support & Downloads

    Its quite possible the card is shot. Plugged in and tried all the drivers and still not working...hmmm
    Have you gone into the networking and sharing center, try troubleshoot problems and/or go into change adapter settings on the left side. I think there in lies the problem.

    Was just replying when your new post came in...download that new win 10 specific driver and let us know how it works.

    Private and AnEdge.
    Tried the GA-970A driver but realised that it was for the AMD chipset . The computer (the offednding one is Intel based.
    The driver would not install.

    Edit
    I checked my original post and did not make it clear, my apologies

    Hey Tim, go into network settings, scroll down to change adapter settings and right click on local area connection and go to properties and lets find out what controller you have on board...before that go into network and sharing and run the trouble shooter problems first...I have a feeling this is an easy fix...It was working on win 7 and it will work again on win 10

    OK, In Nerttwork settings, I have 2 listed items
    Broadband Connection and Ethernet.
    The trouble-shooter in Network settings came back with original error dialogue box

    since d/l Win 10 ... no Internet

    right click on each one and in properties it will tell you what the controllers are for each one...when you click properties it will open the networking tab and directly underneath it will say connect using ****** (usually controller)... that's what we want to know and get the appropriate win 10 driver for that controller

    Dude, you may have airplane mode enabled!! check that first. I should have thought of that before. Let me know

    open settings go to network and internet , second item on the left is airplane mode. Open that and make sure that toggle is off!!

    I'm not sure if affects the wired connection or not but make sure anyway

    AnEdge,

    Settings/ Network & Internet ...
    L.H.S. Data; VPN; Dial-up; Proxy; when using the search box (top/right) it does not discover Airplane Mode.

    Just to muddy the water a little more. I have compared the above settings on the problem computer with this one. Under VPN on this one, there are 2 switches, which are not present on the problem computer ... curious??

    If I may be so bold, I have a suggestion to put to you, it is something that I don't want to do, but just wonder if it may be worth it. . I remove the SDD frfom my problem comp, which was windows 7 but is now Win 10. Put in my original Windows 7, migrate Windows 7 to my SSD and then re-install the SSD and redownload Windows 10 onto the SSD. I truly feel that there must be something wrong with this particular download.

    Your comments would be appreciated.
