How do I make my PC connect wired not wireless?

I used to be on wired rather than wireless, however I have upgraded my motherboard today and it's refusing to connect wired. More to the point, I don't know how to make it connect via ethernet.

In Network Connections, it only displays "WAN miniport (PPPOE)", "Edimax 802.11n Wireless Card" and "Microsoft Virtual WiFi Minport Adapter #2". With the old motherboard, I had more options.

I can't connect via the "WAN miniport". So how do I do wired?

This is what the network devices look like in device manager: http://gyazo.com/b3de4d857b96a739d63ef39f38b43ca5.png

    You can try installing the drivers from the disc that came with the motherboard to get the ethernet driver going
