Ethernet Problems

Hi, I installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit onto my previously Windows 8 desktop and ever since it refuses to acknowledge that I have an ethernet cable plugged into it to help with the internet. I can connect using wireless but when it comes to installing games from Steam I get really slow speeds, around 450 KB/s whereas I'm use to getting at least 2 MB/s with my ethernet connection. Does anyone know how I can get my computer to acknowledge and use my ethernet to connect to the internet?
