New PC won't recognize LAN - No Internet

Hey guys!

I've got a problem, I bought a new Tower-PC and managed to install Win7 on it with some help here from the forum
But now the next problem appears, I plugged a Lan cable directly from the router into my PC and my PC act's like there is no cable connected, I have no chance of getting an Internet connection..

Sadly I'm not a pro when it comes to Internet problems (I really hate internet problems )
So I took a screenshot for you guys and maybe you can tell me what's the problem



The Computer is totally new installed, so nothing was set up or installed yet.

I hope you guys can help me further!
Thanks in advance

Did you install all the device drivers? including any motherboard chipset drivers and any network card drivers?

I must sound very stupid but no, I haven't installed any drivers yet - the problem is I didn't get a Driver CD with the bought PC (probably because it was shipped without any OS, only FREEDOS) :/
How can I find out which drivers I'll need to download and install for my PC?

Go to the PC vendor's site. Most have downloads for their products. If there are none, check the motherboard vendor.

Same thing for the PC audio. If you let Windows install sound drivers it will only install basic function generic drivers, the "HD Audio Codec". You need the specific drivers for the audio (e.g. RealTek, VIA, etc). If you have HDMI capability you will need the video (and sound) drivers for the video.

The PC vendor Site is useless because they're selling every PC brand in every price range :/
RealTek is no problem, I'm used to install that
But how many drivers will I have to install all together? I'm not sure what needs drivers and what not. :x
I guess I don't have to install my graphicscard driver, because when I move a folder around the screen it moves fluently, if the graphicscard driver isn't installed it's only moving very laggy or not?
And how do I find out which motherboard I have? :/
Also I believe I got HDMI capability because my PC doesn't allow a VGA plug, only DVI
And what Drivers will I need to get my Internet connection working? Is that the Motherboard driver?

Sorry for all those... decent questions :/
I really appreciate your help

Ok this is my Speccy Snapshot


If I click publish snapshot I get the error message: "Der Servername oder die Serveradresse konnte nicht verarbeitet werden" :/

Is the Snapshot I made good enough for the start or doesn't it help at all? :/
