I have a msi z77-g45 gaming board.
I do not have a Network Adapter installed.
Can I plug the ethernet cable from my modem to the motherboard?
I tried that but it did not work?
Any solution?

Normally you have a Router connected to your Internet Service Provider Modem, otherwise the two are combined into a single device. As a modem, the modem is registered with the ISP (in many cases) with the MAC Identifier of the Router/Computer that the service was first installed with. Some rare cases you are required to input (manually) specific settings if connected directly to the modem. In all cases CONTACT YOUR ISP FOR SUPPORT to help connect your computer to the Internet since you aren't sure how it is done.

Short answer: Yes normally just plug in ethernet from back of case of your computer to the Router and you should be online unless you don't have your service setup right.

install the network adapter drivers. The port on your mobo IS the network adapter.

Hire geek squad, if you have to ask that. This is way to technical, and above what your responses seem to indicate your comfortable with.
