No connection+no ethernet cable detecting

Hey so I just got my new motherboard+cpu and i've done a fresh windows 7 install now to begin with my internet was just fine but not my wireless card no longer connects to the internet it can find the connection but when I try to connect to my router it says "Cannot connect to asus(my routers name)" now this wouldn't be such a problem but my wired connection (I use both) isn't detected! so if I pull out my wireless card then it has no connection and my ethernet cable gives no signal/a sign it's even there like if I go to see my internet devices it just shows my wireless card but my ethernet cable is plugged in and has been checked multiple times so not only do I get no connection wirelessly I get no connections wired... I have installed the lan drivers etc and my wireless drivers but I have no connection still...
And on the rare chance my wireless connects to my router I get like 5 seconds of internet or none at all but is connected
Any help is apreciated


EDIT forgot to say all other devices in the house are working just fine wirelessly and wired.

I really don't know what fixed your problem but sometimes just rebooting your router and computer will allow Windows 7 to pickup up things and deal with them.

Ethernet cable speeds
We have a bunch of ethernet cables, I have no clue how old. But do they have a speed limit, or is that based on the network card? They are less than 10 years old I know that, so if I upgrade the network card in our computer from 100 to 1Gb ethernet card, will the chord matter or do I need a new...

For regular coax cables, like used for TV antenna, there are short cable sections that are thin and flat, to permit the cable to fit under closed windows or doors. I'm wondering if anything like that is available for ethernet cables?
