The AR9285 is a wireless chipset.
Is there anything else listed under Network Adapters in Device Manager?
Are there any yellow exclamation marks in Device Manager?
What is the make and model of the computer?

Hey thanks for the reply guys,
Yes the AR9285 is the only thing listed under 'Network Adaptors', however there are 4 yellow exclamations listed under 'Other Devices' which are: Ethernet controller, PCI simple communications controller, SM Bus controller and video controller.
I'm using a Gigabyte Z68M-D2H motherboard (I'm also using a PCI-express wireless card for wireless if that matters)

This may be a chipset driver issue alone or chipset and Ethernet driver.
What is the OS and is it 32bit or 64bit?
Edit: From your MB support page it looks like the chipset and Ethernet drivers will need to be installed but I need the OS and if it is 32bit or 64bit.

I'm using windows 7 64 bit. Also, I should add that I don't get a light in the actual ethernet port either when I plug something into it.

I don't believe you will get a light if Windows does not detect the device. It's possible it is disable in UEFI/BIOS but first try the Ethernet driver.

Here is your support page. You can verify the above driver by selecting Driver in the first dropdown box and Windows 7 64bit in the second.
After downloading and installing the above driver, can you access the internet with Ethernet? If you can the next drivers to install would be the ones listed under chipset.
