Hi. I have a 2017 macbook pro with windows 10 bootcamp. I have no ethernet. wifi works. I have no ethernet driver even listed under device manager in windows. booting the computer with the ethernet cable plugged in does not cause it to recognize. ethernet works fine on the mac side. I cant figure out how to get the proper driver to get the computer to recognize the ethernet... Under another menu (I forget the name as i'm on the mac side typing this) it shows internet options and i have a realteck usb gbe family controller, however it is listed as "not present". Where do I go next/what do I do to get ethernet working?

Thanks for any help!

Model Name: MacBook Pro
Model Identifier: MacBookPro14,3

So I just logged back into windows and it recognized it. I have been back and forth for days after work, trying to get it to work, now all of a sudden it chooses to... Any ideas as to why now, just incase it happens again? I have been back and fourth between OXS and windows probably over 5 times in the same way without in recognizing it...
