I am admittedly brand new to Linux, and of course then Garuda as well, as of 2 or 3 days ago. I am attempting to install my motherboard drivers as I feel like it's the reason my LAN/wired ethernet connection isn't working at all on this OS (it is just fine on my windows OS, same PC).
My worry is when i go to the driver site, all the drivers are for windows 10/11, and when i click "other systems" there's no downloads available.
What's the best way to go about getting these drivers set up, is it using some compatibility layer like wine or is that only for applications? Sorry for being this asburdly naive.. Thanks in advance for any help.

Drivers such as that are usually handled by firmware/kernel that the Linux OS provides.
As such, it looks like you are on a new install and just updated and require a restart to use the latest kernel:

Note: the at the end of the full system update means you haven't restarted after updating.
EDIT: looks like you are on the latest Zen kernel. Still, a reboot wouldn't hurt.

If you are having issues with your wired network connection after that, I would first try updating your BIOS ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING (WI-FI) | ROG STRIX B550-F GAMING (WI-FI) | Gaming Motherboards|ROG - Republic of Gamers|ROG USA .
If that doesn't work, try changing to a different kernel, like LTS

Your drivers are installed just fine, drivers work on Linux differently than on Windows. Start by disabling fast boot and hibernation on Windows.

I have attempted the fixes in the following order:

  1. updating bios to the newest version, using the suggested link from Kayo and using asus ez flash utility, and the bios updated successfully.
  2. disabling fast boot in bios, disabling fast startup and hibernation on windows, and double checking that ethernet was still working fine in windows before rebooting back into Garuda.

Result: The ethernet is still not functioning. I can note that in the Garuda Network Assistant, in linux drivers tab, it shows.. Intel Corporation Ethernet Controller I225-V [8086:15f3] (rev 03) but it isn't responsive, and when i disable the connection to wifi, it won't connect to ethernet nor seemingly provide any options to connect when poking around the network connections menu.

My next step would be to try the LTS kernel as Kayo had suggested, I wish I knew what that really meant or where to find said kernel, any poke in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks again.

Okay I did some asking to chatgpt and it got me a bit further, here's where I'm currently having issues:
I ran pacman -Ss linux-lts
and it returns the list, so i try to run sudo pacman -S linux-lts5.15.87-1 as it's titled LTS Linux kernel and modules. I get the error back target not found: linux-lts5.15.87-1.

sudo pacman -S linux-lts linux-lts-headers

So I've now tried all given options, and it still doesn't want to connect via ethernet, wifi only.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated. I will note that even when using WiFi, the date/time is not correct and is several hours behind. I've heard previously of issues where desync like such could cause network related issues, so I figured I'd note it.

Umm.. I restarted the router the ethernet was plugged into and it works.. heh.. sorry. Idk why it would work on windows but not linux before restarting the router..

More than likely a ip address conflict :smiley:
