Check your motherboard BIOS to see if the LAN card is enable first. Then check device manager to see if there's any error for the network card, because you may be missing the driver for it. You would usually uninstall and reinstall the driver.Connect your computer to the modem bypassing the router if youÂ’re on broadband Internet and sharing behind a router. Other things to check is the Ethernet cable, switch it out for a known working one.

You can download the latest version here at this site then put it on a CD and installed it on your computer.
