When I try to install W10, I get no internet connection on a cable that works with my Asus Z390. Also tried another Cat 5e cable, same problem.

Suggestions please

Get one of these for your toolbox. PnP for XP and up, RealTek USB to gbe. Well worth the money. Plug it in, detect the LAN, then do Windows update to pull down the drivers for mobo LAN (and everything else).

It's pretty easy to install the drivers when installing the OS. No need for extra hardware, especially if you don't build computers that often. Just download the mobo drivers, and while you're at it, gpu drivers and save them to a USB drive. Then when the OS install is looking for a network, press Shift-F10 to open a command prompt. CD to where the LAN driver is and run it. It will install the driver and you can continue with the OS install.
