Intel I219-V onboard NIC not working after kernal upgrade

The drivers for my intel I219-V onborad NIC on my Asrock B365M Pro4 are, presumably, not working in the latest kernel (6.5.0.9-generic) and I'm having trouble installing the drivers.
Can't access internet, can't get IPhone tethering to work without going into live environment and installing packages - just stay in Ubuntu live environment with chroot where it works.
Ip link and Ip a only return loopback
note - I'm chrooted in via Ubuntu live environment, some stuff might be different
In this post I've tried installing two different drivers and making an exhaustive list of my actions and outcomes, so it's fairly long.

Install these drivers

Unzip drivers, go to

 unzippedfolder/APPS/BootUtil/Linux_x64 

Run ./bootutil64e

 Error: Connection to QV driver failed - please reinstall it!

Rebooting and checking ip link returns nothing
As you can see in the output for ./install the iqvlinux module can't be loaded. This module is included in the drivers, at

 unzippedfolder/APPS/BootUtil/Linux_x64/DRIVER/iqvlinux 

modinfo iqvlinux returns:

modprobe iqvlinux returns:

Seeing as though this didn't work, I tried to install the e1000 drivers
Untar/unzip the tar.gz file
cd into untarred directory and follow the README

 # make install 

in untarredfolder/src returns:

This make command tries to make and load the kernel module "ice", and fails.
"modinfo ice" and "modprobe ice" output:

 modinfo: ERROR: Module ice not found. 
  modprobe: FATAL: Module ice not found in directory /lib/modules/6.5.0-9-generic 

There's not much documentation for the first drivers I installed. I found some instructions on an ask Ubuntu forum that I would link to if I could find it
here is some install instructions on the second set of drivers I installed. The included README at /untarredfolder/README is useful, but you'll have to download it to look at it.
Both drivers won't install, no idea what to do. I haven't got internet on my system and I have to chroot just to install packages. Not sure whether these errors are produces by user error or my system just isn't compatible for some reason.

Pls help

Re: Intel I219-V onboard NIC not working after kernal upgrade

This does not look like an Arch system.  Why is your kernel so old?  We are at 6.8.

Was chrooted in on Ubuntu like I said. When booted in normally it says 6.8, I’ll have to edit this in the morning

Re: Intel I219-V onboard NIC not working after kernal upgrade

But you are trying to build a kernel module.   If you are building it for Arch, you really need to be using the Arch kernel and its include files.

I remember trying to do all this last night in my Arch system with the same results. I’ll try this all again and edit my post if I have to. Never thought about chrooting and using different kernels. Should I delete the existing modules before making them agaiin?
