Why don't I have a LAN connection?

Built a new PC today using a Sabertooth Z77 MoBo and I can connect to my internet fine using wireless, but I'm trying to connect to it with an Ethernet cable and I'm having problems. First of all, I don't even have a LAN icon in my Network Connections folder, only a Wireless icon. And when I plug my Ethernet cable in nothing happens. This is the same cable I was using on my PC earlier today, so I doubt that the cable is the problem.
And to my knowledge the LAN Controller in the BIOS is Enabled.

Any ideas why this could be happening, or ideas on how I could connect to my internet using an Ethernet cable?

Have you installed the driver for the LAN.

It sounds like no device driver is installed.
