Hi, and welcome to TSG.

You will probably need to use another computer to download the network hardware drivers and copy them to a USB drive or burn on a disc to install them on the problem computer. You should only download them from the computer manufacturer's website and not some site that claims it has the correct drivers.

If you are getting some kind of message to pay for troubleshooting your driver problems, there is a good possibility that Driver Booster 6 installed some malware on your computer. A malware expert in our malware removal forum may be able to assist you with removing it once you have a working network connection.

Well it did not prove to be too reliable in its use for you - did it.
Driver Booster and all third party driver finding programs of that ilk are unnecessary and will often offer the wrong driver.
There are basically only two places to obtain your drivers
That is the computer/motherboard/hardware manufacturers site
OR in the case of windows 10 - it is automatic - apart for hardware etc that is not part of the main system

Also your reply, whilst I appreciate English is not your first language is really difficult to read.

My advice like that of my colleague is go to the computer site or the network card - whatever it is - site - download the required drivers
Save to USB
Insert the usb in your computer
Go to the device manager
right click the network device - under network adapters - click properties
go to the driver tab
uninstall the present driver
REBOOT

go back as before and install the driver from your USB pen.

If you have doubt about what I have said regarding Driver Booster I suggest you read some of the many problems described on IOBit forums
