Alright I am finally done bashing my head into my desk I have come to beg for help, I was trying to install TAP drivers for PIA and the install was not working.  I had internet just the TAP driver was not installing, I had error 56 with those drivers too.  I am using the AB350 gaming for my motherboard and my LAN chipset is the Realtek GBE Family Controller it is the onboard LAN on my MOBO. 

Current Troubleshooting steps i have taken:

Resetting network configuration in windows (it broke windows and caused this problem)

Reinstalled drivers (didn't do anything got error 56)

Installed generic windows drivers (error 26 timed out)

Disabled all the network things and rebooted (nothing)

Got a new bios (did nothing)

Help me please.

I will include some pictures soon.

Use some 3rd Party automatic driver installer. I used driver booster 5 (free version) and I updated all my drivers. And now this PC works like a charm on wireless

Do you have another desktop connected to internet and do you have a USB stick with atleast 4 gigs?

OK, this is why it's ALWAYS handy to have at least one good driver available for troubleshooting. On the alternate PC, go to your motherboard vendors driver page for your motherboard and download the drivers for your LAN. Re-install them from the USB stick. Please keep a backup of these somewhere like a USB stick for example, they are very cheap nowadays. Make sure you can access the network and internet before installing the TAP drivers.

Get the latest TAP drivers from PIA and install again.

Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you.
