I have a gigabyte motherboard pc and i have this usb from work that has windows 8 on it and i simply directly boot windows 8 to it but i cant get internet connection. But, when i try to boot my pc on its HD drive that has Windows 10 it has internet connection. So, I tried the usb (work) on my friend's pc that has asus motherboard and boot it it can get internet connection. I tried copying the BIOS settings that it has but it still doesn't give me internet connection. Does anyone know the reason behind this? Thanks in advance

    Hi @ariston

    My best recommendation is to ensure that you have the necessary driver for that motherboard. It is quite possible that there is a missing driver for ethernet/wifi on your device. Please check ASUS's website for ethernet/wifi drivers, download them to a USB and install them on your device. Then try connecting to the internet.

    Try looking up the specific motherboard that you have on the ASUS website or a search engine.
