Expand any one of the items in device manager highlight one of the expanded items then click Action - scan for changes - look under network adaptores to see if the ethernet adaptor has appeared with or without an error

Check with SIW or Belarc to see if it shows up. If it doesn't it might be faulty. You can buy a pci ethernet card for a few pounds.
