No network adapters in Device Manager

Mar 20, 2020 4:27PM PDT

I'm using a windows 10 small laptop and suddenly I lost my network adapters. All I have is mini ports but no network adapters and I can't find any software that works wirelessly that finds missing drivers. I have to use my phone has a media transport. Can anybody help me find a way to fix this and tell me how to find out which adapters it needs? I know I'm a lost cause and dug myself a deep hole but please help.

Yes, I have rebooted it, I even reset my network in the settings, and if I don't know which adapters its need I can't find its drivers in legacy hardware. I see an intel Sticker on it though.
