Hi there, last night I've updated my drivers with Driver Booster, everything was fine, but this morning my PC can't connect to internet. (I use my phone for internet via a USB, Android)
I'm using Windows 11 with a MSI B450M PRO-VDH Max motherboard, that driver I've updated was something like "Realteak PCIe Ethernet ...."
In network troubleshooting said this network does not have a valid IP configuration
 
This is the risk you take running "magic" programs you find on the internet.

So does your pc have any method to connect to the internet. I would go to the motherboard web site and download the drivers for your motherboard and try to get those to install.

For things other than wifi the drivers from the motherboard maker should be fine. Wifi tends to be better to get from the wifi chipset maker.

In general if you have some issue you would manually replace the drivers. It is much simpler to fix when you do them 1 at a time by hand. Newer drivers are not always better, they might fix one thing and break another so if you are not having some issue it is best to wait until a driver has been out a few months with no new updates before you load them.

You can try a driver roll back. This article talks about it. https://pureinfotech.com/rollback-driver-windows-11/#:~:text=On Windows 11, the “Roll,previously installed on the computer.
Or, run a recovery point if you have made one.

Look the motherboard up on the MSI web site. All of the driver should be downloadable. Download them onto a USB stick, then plug the stick into your PC and get them installed.
