Windows 7: Internet port broken?

Internet port broken?


When I first built my rig I was living in a place where there were no possibilities of running cable so I ran wireless but then when I moved back to my parents place I realized that when I entered an internet cable into the slot on the motherboard nothing happened, there wasn't even a flicker of light(green and orange).

And when I go to the support page of Asus and download the drivers under the lan section and try to install them the installer says that there are no Intel(R) network adapters present at this computer, what does this mean? Is the port physically broken or am I missing some obvious point here?

Internet Explorer is broken
If I start my IE, he just pops up for a milisec and then closes again... I tried to "remove" him via 'add/remove windows features' (whats it called?) and then add him again, but the problem stays.
