I recently built my first computer and it turned on just fine, but when I plugged in my Ethernet cable, my computer didn't recognize it.

I tried installing Network Connections drivers, but it gave me an error message: "Cannot install drivers. No Intel® Adapters are present in this computer" 
Where can I find these adapters?

I've never had this problem before, so I'm not sure what to do... Any help would be appreciated.

You should post the specs of the computer so that we can help you.


Most important would be the model of the motherboard and if you're using a different Ethernet port then the one that's (probably) integrated to the motherboard.


However, full specs is always a good idea.


First thing I'd try though is if the same cable will work for a different computer and/or try a different Ethernet cable.


Also, here's a post with "SOLVED" that shows up if you google "Cannot install drivers. No Intel® Adapters are present in this computer"
