Acer Aspire 5750 Can't connect to the internet with Ethernet on windows 10

LitNothinLitNothin Member Posts: 9 New User
I have been trying to get Ethernet working on this hunk of junk for quite a while and nothing is working, ethernet doesn't show up anywhere near the settings and there is like no drivers for ethernet on windows 10, only windows 7, at least accoriding to https://www.acer.com/ac/en/GB/content/support-product/3474?b=1 . So now I'm wondering, if i want ethernet support is the only way to get it to downgrade my os? Because i do not want to do that, and would like to avoid it if i can. Wifi works fine, but i'd rather Ethernet as it is faster. I can provide more information if you would like.

    Acer doesn't provide window 10 driver for your model.
    Download and run driverpack solution it will automatically update all your driver.
    (Before download disable your antivirus and while installing DRIVERs this app may download 1-2software like avg antivirus,360security you can uninstall these software after driver installation)
    click on "Yes" if it answers your question.

    I have read reviews of Driverpack solution and most of them say that it is not very safe, is there an alternative i could use or is this the only way to get ethernet drivers?

    1)open device manager→click on desktop name→views→show hidden devices→action scan for hardware changes then check if something new appears like unknown devices or something in network adapters

    2)Run window update 
    click on "Yes" if it answers your question.

    Nothing has happened/changed. I think i need to download drivers or something for ethernet, no unknown devices and the update didn't do anything in regards to ethernet.

    Yes, you can uninstall 
    Now, Download window 7 Ethernet driver from official site then run on window 10 in compatibility mode window 7.
    To do that→
    Right click on that Ethernet driver .exe file→properties→compatibility tab→tick mark "the run this problem in compatibility mode"→by default it may be window 8 change it to Window 7 then apply and ok

    Now run setup 
    click on "Yes" if it answers your question.

    Driverbooster updated the drivers that were already installed on my laptop, but it didn't detect that i'm missing drivers, which is the problem. Driverbooster didn't work.
