My pc has no network adapter. Cant install from mobo

I have an asus z97m plus motherboard. Today randomly I wasn't connected to the internet. I check the adapter and turns out it is completely gone. I went to the asus site and installed the  Intel LAN Driver V19.2.104.0 for Windows Win7 32bit & Win7 64bit & Win8 32bit & Win8 64bit---(WHQL). For my mobo. But this fails to install. It prompts me with "no Intel(r) adapters are present on this computer". 


So I dont know what to do. Is my motherboard broken? or am i missing something in the drivers.

Try doing a system restore to when the lan was working.

I am a paid professional, but only when I am at work...and getting paid.

i went to my system restore page. Turns out my computer thought it was 2009, so i have no restore points to go back to.

Wrong suggestion.

 

 

@Apothem try to confirm your adapter is still working, it might be the Ethernet cable or the port on the router that might have died, so test the cable on another PC. Or try another cable you know is working.

 

Also, look at the connection on the back of the motherboard, when you connect a working cable the LED should flash momentarily.

i tested it already with another cable that my main computer is connected to. No lights on the back of the board. So im thinking something hardware related died?

Looks like it, did you also tried a different port on the router?

Sounds like it may be a bad port then...

what if i just buy a lan pci card, because I DO NOT WANT to have to replace this motherboard, it was a pain in the ass to build this system.

That will probably work fine if you've got room/bandwidth for it.

before you buy anything, change your CMOS battery and check that everything is enabled in your BIOS. If it's still not working then yes, a PCIE network cable would be an affordable workaround.

 

I'm mentionning the CMOS battery because you said something about the date behing wrong, having a dead CMOS battery can cause all sorts of strange behaviours, in the case of your motherboard that could also include a disabled network port.
