Hi!

I have a Windows Server 2019 running on an AMD Rig:
Ryzen 7 2700x
32GB RAM
ASUS Prime X470-Pro

But i have a problem, that i can't get any ethernet drivers working on my machine. Has anyone experienced the same problem with similar rigs?
Or do i just have a compatibility issue?

Solutions i have tried:
Forcing the drivers on before OS installation
BIOS update
Reinstalling the OS
USB Wifi adapter(wont work because we cant get the ethernet controller driver)

Thanks in advance!

What make and model is the USB Wifi adapter?

You will need the applicable wireless driver for that adapter. Not the ethernet (wired) driver.

And only one network adapter (wireless or wired) should be enabled barring some specific requirements for bridging.

You can download driver for the WiFi adapter on another PC which is connected to the internet.
Copy that driver to a pen drive, then plug pen drive in to your Windows Server PC to install it.
We have tried to install the drivers from an usb stick, aswell from the original cd that came with the wifi adapter.
