    Did you download and install the Atheros AR8152 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller, v.1.0.0.23, A00 from this page?

    The old disk drive is not operational
  5. Hello... is your network card/features Turned on in your BIO's?
  6. Check in device manager if your network card actually appears at all, or with no drivers installed or with an exclamation mark (error). Also check if it is enabled in BIOS.
