New motherboard - can't recognize ethernet cable

Hi guys, I bought new motherboard Z97M Pro 4. I installed all drivers and chipset. I even tried to reinstall the network driver but still without any success... When I try windows repair it says that I haven't my ethernet cable plugged but I have. The cable blinks from time to time but that's all. On my modem the diode with 10/100M is blinking once like every 10 seconds but that's all. When I plug the same cable into my laptop it works fine and the diode on my modem is constantly blinking. I really hope that someone will be able to help me with this. Sorry for my english and if I forget some informations. Thank you guys

What do you mean you tried ? What is the problem ? The network driver is right on the cd.

If you haven`t installed the network (ethernet) driver successfully you are not gonna get out to the web. Keep trying.

When I say I reinstalled it it means I have already installed it and tried to reinstall it in case it has been installed wrong... I think it's obvious or I wrote it in a bad way. As I said. English isn't my first language so sorry for that .

"I even tried to reinstall the network driver but still without any success"

This could have been written in Japanese or Portugese it doesn`t matter, but anyhow....
