Question "No internet" on ethernet/no valid ip config: is my motherboard bricked?

Hello!
I've been experiencing problems starting half a year ago with my motherboard. Some starting issues, which were gone for the most part after switching RAM, and also issues with internet. I have a certain cable, which is connected to my modem, and this cable allows for half a gigabit, if I connect it with my laptop. However, sticking the cable into the ethernet port on the back of my desktop, shows a "No internet"-error message in Windows. WiFi (through an adapter) is working as usual. I've also tested the connection on my desktop through Linux, and it also would not connect. Because of this, I expect the fault is at my motherboard (Asus Maximus VIII Ranger). Please, I am very interested in anyone's opinion on this!
PS yes I have tried tons of netsh etc commands in threads I found on google, to no avail. /:

On your desktop:

Are you sure that the wireless network adapter is disabled and only the wired network adapter is enabled?

Have you tried downloading the wired network adapter's drivers via the manufacturer's website?

Download, reinstall, and reconfigure.

If the adapter is known to be working via another computer, iPhone, etc. then the problem is likely with the desktop.

Run and post the results of "ipconfig /all" via your desktop.
Which information do you need? I hope you understand I'm a bit hesitant sharing
