You can try downloading drivers. It mat help, but installing Windows will have loaded drivers.

Is it enabled? Go to My Computer and click My Network Places on the left side.

Click View Network Connections and right click your Ethernet connection. If it says Enablke at the top, select that.

What version of windows did you install??

Do you have your motherboard model??

Check the cds that came with your motherboard there probably be the drivers there... but you are better off downloading them from the company website so that you have to most updated drivers.

Just a note here: In order to locate and download drivers, you must know identify the physical hardware by manufacturer and model. If your device manager identifies it by model but does not load the drivers correctly, then I would try uninstalling and reinstalling. If you know the model number, do to the manufacturer's site or another driver search site such as driverguide.com (there are others) and download the driver. FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS. Some may need to be installed from a floppy or CD. Some of them require you to uninstall the device and existing driver first, then install the correct driver before you reinstall the device. Sometimes, you may actually have to physically remove the network card, install the driver, turn the machine off, reinstall the device, and then allow the computer to identify it upon reboot. This may be easier than you think if you have to remove it to get any identifying information off of it in order to locate the drivers.
