Windows won't connect to the internet

I built a brand new PC and it works. I downloaded windows with the latest version of the toolkit. For some reason it didn't download drivers for the Ethernet adapter thingy on the board. I can get to the desktop. I can do offline stuff. I can't update it or do any online activity.

After re-installing windows for 6 times I decided to ask for help.

 

Specs:

Gtx 1080

I5 9600k

Z390 from gigabyte

16 gb of tforce ddr4 ram

1 tb we blue ssd

Was there a driver CD included with the motherboard, that might work.

ethernet adapter...? i believe all motherboards have built in ethernet connection, and usually you dont need driver for that.

 

check the ethernet port at the io panel and see if the activity light is blinking, green=connection, amber=activity. if no light, you havent connect it to router or modem, if no amber light, your network is dead.

why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!

There is an Amber light but windows doesn't detect internet

have you disabled the ethernet connection? run cmd and type in ipconfig and see if your ethernet connect is active.

Nope. It was a driver issue. I solved it using bradwiggo's idea. Thanks for the advice though
