I have been trying desperately to get back the rtl8185.sys file I accidentally deleted. As a result of deleting it I cannot connect to the Internet. All of the solutions seem to require me to download a program to the affected computer that runs a check and install automatically. If I try to copy the file and transfer it to the affected computer it does not work. Please help me.

It seems that transferring from another computer is the only way of solving this. Although you replace the SYS file, there are possibly some registers missing or pointing to an invalid file. This means that the installer of the driver will properly point the registry to the right files. Download the driver on another computer and transfer it with a USB drive. It's the easiest way of solving this.
