  1. Hello there! My first thought would be that the driver isn't installed. Is the adapter you have a separate PCI unit that you needed to install? Or does your motherboard have one built in? If it is built in, I would suggest looking up "asus maximus viii Network Adapter Driver" on another laptop/desktop and download the driver. Put the driver file onto a flash drive and put it in the new PC. Drag out the file and install it. Hopefully that will activate the adapter. If the adapter is an add on, I think you could look the driver up as well and transfer using a flash drive. Hope that helps!
  2. Hello night owl thank you for replying, i have a built in network adapter on the motherboard. Would the driver disk in the motherboard box help with that? i don't have a USB on hand i'm afraid!

    Yes. The driver for the network adapter should be on the disk(along with other needed drivers). Once you get it connected to the internet, you should check the motherboard manufacturer's website for updated drivers.
  5. If the CD isn't loading the correct driver you can use an android cell phone if you have one.

    You can then use your phone to download the windows drivers you need from ASUS.

    i have an iphone will that work ?
  9. Use your iPhone as a USB modem and directly download the drivers from ASUS.
    I'd install the drivers with the phone still plugged in just in case the software needs to search for updates.
