Cool no Ethernet card found

I'm pretty new to linux but very determined so trying to learn as I go. While installing from live usb I get Ethernetcard not found error, it's a low end tablet pc rca cambio w101sa23t2 with intel atom processor and a wireless/bt compound network adapter from realtek rtl8723bs - have tried debian 9, then debian 9 with non free firmware. Then downloaded the realtek driver package from but the matching drivers have different letters at the end as do the rtl8723's in the installation menu. I have the correct Windows driver file and chose the option to choose it from storage during install with error "kernel module not found" . I can boot into live environment but still no network ui available... Lshw doesn't seem to return Anything resembling the network adapter either. Anything I forgot to include please let me know .. Any advice or insight would be great
