The adapter appears to be working perfectly. It is getting a lease and showing the gateway.

Yes it is but it still won't browse or connect at all still, even if it is showing internet access. I even uninstalled the antivirus.

Open Device manager. Is there any yellow alerts of missing drivers?

No everything is fine on that end, no errors. I'm resetting the pc again and seeing if that does anything.

I fixed it. I suppose it just needed another factory reset to resolve it. Thanks for the additional assistance.
