Asus ROG G18 ethernet problem after drive update

Level 7

Hello everyone.
So, i bought a new asus rog laptop G18 G814JI a few days ago. After a few days and a few windows updates, i realized that the ethernet cable is not recognized anymore, and the laptop uses only the wifi. I reinstalled the windows, and then the ethernet cable was working again. When i was notified about a windows update again, i checked what was being updated, and one of the things was Realtek - Net to version 10.68 (this update was also present as an optional update on the MyAsus desktop app. And this seems to be the cause of the problem. I had to rollback the driver manually to an older version for the ethernet to work again. Any solution for this besides the rollback?
This is the updated driver that doesn't work:

And this is the rollbacked version where the ethernet works

Never mind, looks like the latest Realtek LAN Driver supported by ASUS is 

V10.066.0621.2023, with this one it seems to be working fine. I guess i just have to be careful to not let windows update it
