Win 10 should have had lan drivers for that motherboard, Z97 isn't that long ago. You shouldn't have needed to install any is what I am saying

Or is it a WIFI card? it could be the drivers for it causing errors, if the only drivers you installed were them...
what wifi card is it?

Thank you I will give this a try
ASUS USB-AC68
chipset - Realtek RTL8814AU
driver - https://www.realtek.com/en/component/zoo/category/rtl8814au-software

i seen this driver crashing windows all year, its time for a new WIFI Adapter. Get one that is WIFI6/AX/AC2100 - they all mean same thing. Latest standard, you won't get rebranded win 7 drivers
I’m almost certain that you are correct now however is there any other solution rather than just getting a new wifi card? Could I install older drivers for it?

I don't know, looking at the version number of the one on the Realtek website - 1030.25.0701.2017 - I can already guess this driver, although dated Sept 7th 2018 on the realtek site, its actually from 2017, based on last 4 digits of version., its listed on Dlinks website as being a Win 7/8 driver

1030.37.0703.2018 & 1030.40.0128.2019 are both meant to be for win 10 but I can't see them on the Realtek website, both driver packages are actually made by Dlink and I a can guess all that has changed is branding. It would still include the same driver. OEM like Dlink often make their own version numbers up but still include the same drivers.

Age is what is making them not work, using older drivers isn't going to fix that.
