I upgraded my machine (after a lot of pain) to windows 10. My wireless adapter seems to be working correctly, although the signal in the room is too poor to use the internet via wifi, but the ethernet adapter is not displayed in device manager and I cannot use the ethernet connection.
Current OS: Windows 10 64bit Motherboard: Gigabyte G1.Sniper(1.0) CPU: Intel i7 990x Computer is custom built
I tried using the disk that came with the motherboard, but before even attempting any installation of drivers it says that the OS is not supported. The website for my motherboard does not list any drivers for windows 10 (bigfoot LAN seems to be what I am looking for).
I tried using the windows 7 driver: it gets all the way through installation - the adapter temporarily appears in device manager - but right at the end, when it is "registering product", it says a fatal error has occurred and appears to revert the changes.
The update notification said I was eligible for windows 10. However, I cannot find my motherboard here, and although the gigabyte microsite says "the drivers and BIOS on all current GIGABYTE motherboards are ready and optimized for Windows 10", my motherboard is not displayed on the website.
How can I use the ethernet connection on the computer?
Edit: My network card is Killer 2100. Tried installing windows 8.1 driver from https://www.visiontek.com/download-drivers.html and the same thing happened.
