If it's not in Device Manager, it's more than likely disabled in BIOS. If you have a custom rig, hit Del when the computer is booting up- it should get to BIOS. Not sure at that point where the connection will be listed, you'll have to search for it. WARNING- don't change anything except enable the "onboard lan" as most BIOS manufactures call it. Save and exit- it should then show up in device manager.
Note: This only applies if you're using an on-board NIC. If you are using wireless, we'll have to take a different approach
