My power randomly went off three times in a short span, like 20 seconds, and now my desktop no longer gets internet. I use an ethernet cable and I have attempted various things such as another cable, hooked it up to a laptop that uses wifi, restarting router and restarting pc. I am completely lost now and I really need some help. Im using Windows 10 and my specs are Gtx 1080, i7 8700, and motherboard is a Gigabyte, I cant remember the exact model right now though.

Yes it is still there, and when opened WAN Miniport (IP) has the yellow triangle on it

"WAN Miniport" is a separate device -- I asked you if the actual LAN network adapter (eg Realtek PCIe Family Controller) is listed.

I ended up deciding the best thing to do was to do a hard reset as Windows kept giving me errors for anything I tried to do as an admin, even with command prompt and such. After doing this wipe the computer was accepting Ethernet again.
