Edit: i remember looking into other solutions it was said that this problem, as i instaled mint after i just removed windows 10, its because windows 10 sets the network adapter to an state, but linux tries to use it as if its from zero, from a blank state as if just started.
the solution would be removing driver and reinstaling the driver in windows.
1 i dont have windows anymore.
2 this solution is over 6 month old. the forum rules says i should make a new post about it, as old solution may not work anymore.
3 i think we should not need to reinstall another os just to solve a problem in linux.
4 also, not sure if its the same problem as i never tried to use this ethernet without having used windows first
