Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I218-V Adapter is experiencing driver- or hardware- related problem*** How do I fix this?

I would greatly appreciate any advice. Quick Run through:

 

This is not an issue with my router or my modem - I am posting this from my laptop which I connected with from both WiFi and Ethernet.

 

All of my WAN Miniports are functional

 

In Device Manager My Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I218-V Adapter has a caution flag. I have attempted to update the drivers (Kinda hard without internet huh...) however device manager seems to thing that the drivers are the most recent.

 

Update:

OS-Windows 10 Version 1803

 

Please let me know if any additional information would be helpful to find a solution

 

Thanks all!

What is your Operating System and what is the O.S. version?

  1. Download the latest driver: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/25016/Ethernet-Intel-Network-Adapter-Driver-for-Windows-10... if your Windows is 64bit version please download the PROWinx64.exe file, otherwise PROWin32.exe for 32-bit (x86) editions of Windows.
  2. Disconnect the internet and uninstall in Device Manager My Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I218-V Adapter. Check the Delete option.
  3. Install the previously downloaded from Intel driver.
  4. Reconnect the Internet and reboot your computer.

Unfortunately this did not work, I have updated my BIOS and my drivers, I believe it might be a hardware issue. My current adapter is integrated into my motherboard. Would i be able to bypass this issue with a Ethernet-to-USB Adapter or an additional/new adapter socketed into my motherboard?

Hi Tyler,

  1. Did you try using Windows troubleshooter to fix this problem? Right click on network icon in task bar and then click on Troubleshot problems.
  2. Is the network adapter enabled in bios?
  3. About your question for using other adapter? I can't answer this for sure. You may try.
