If that is your motherboard, you may need to update the bios depending on which version you have.

Then you install the chipset driver and then the others really don't matter as far as the order. They will be compressed -- zipped, so you unzip them into a folder and then run their setup. Some will require a restart.

To get Internet access you will use the LAN driver for Ethernet.

If you have a wireless device, the driver will come from whatever company made the wireless adapter.
You don't need to update BIOS for internet to work I must disagree on that one. If your using Windows 10 you need no drivers they already have drivers for you no matter what mobo you have. If your using Winblows 7 then ya you might need drivers but a BIOS upgrade you don't need. No need to take a change with a firmware update and then you get a power loss or computer crashes your doomed ya know. So be more clear if you cant what OS you using and why is your internet not working and has it ever worked. You certainly don't need motherboard drivers which is nice to install however Windows 10 especially 2004 update has all your drivers even graphics and RealTek audio as well. Good Luck 😜

When trying to install the LAN driver it says "FindFile failed" then fails to detect the ethernet controller.

Okay, so the general overview of how to use a board failed, how about you give us some context. Like have you used this board before, was it running until yesterday, what parts models are you using, is it running other than the Internet connection. What OS are you running? Did you just update it or has it been stable for years? Information will help solve your problem and turn this from a guessing game into diagnostic help.

In addition, you say that you are trying to install a driver. From where, a USB stick, the C drive? Where did you unzip the actual driver?
