How to go about diagnosing motherboard LAN problems?


I just built a system. Here are the details:

Asus sabertooth P67 motherboard, revision 3
Intel i5 2500K CPU
8GB Corsair RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 ti
Rosewill Challenger case

Everything works beautifully, with one exception. WiFi doesn't seem to work at all. I can open device manager and see the network adapter (Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection). The location is listed as PCI bus 0, device 25, function 0. "Device status" says it is working properly.

The only potential problem I see is the Link Status on the Link Speed tab. The Speed says "Not connected. Power off."

Does anyone know how I should proceed? Is this a problem with the chipset, or... does it simply not do WiFi like I thought?
