You have the driver installed from the gigabyte support page?

(You need to click on the "lan" option then choose the driver for your os)

yea, I have it installed and the light flashes yellow sometimes and green sometimes, I think it might be damaged.

Hmm ok. You have another cable you can try? How about different outputs from your router, or bypassing your router if possible.

If you want wifi an internal card is usually the way to go, it can go in the x16 (longer) lowest expansion slot assuming your gpu is blocking the x1 (short) slot.

I only have the one output, I'm thinking of installing the internal card but my GPU takes up so much space it might be a problem. yea the PCIEX1 is completely covered only the PCIEX4 is visible.

I think i fixed it by setting network profile to private and turning on metered connection. I'll keep testing just to be safe. thanks for the help,
