I have had this problem with my SysteMax Ascent as well. Not sure if you re-installed your OS or not, but the same will still apply. What is happening is that your OS (assuming Windows) is not recognizing the onboard LAN adaptor, even with it's native drivers, so the driver must be downloaded and installed. But first..

What you will need to do is open up your PC and look on your Motherboard for (what will likely be) a Letter-Number combination that will be large in size. Mine was M7NCD, yours may be different. If yours happens to be M7NCD, then your Motherboard is manufactured by BioStar, and here is their webpage with the download that you will need:
It is located under Drivers, and be sure to check to the right of the download link to find which one will be compatible with your Operating System (OS).

If it is different, enter what you see into your favorite search engine, followed by 'drivers'. You should be able to find what you're looking for in the first few results. If not, just keep checking, and if needed, use different words in your search (like lan driver, chipset). A manufacture's website is usually the best result.

Once found, check for compatible OS and install. Your LAN adaptor should work now.

Also, for good measure, check in Device Manager (Start>Right-click properties>Hardware tab>Device Manager) for any exclamation points (black ! in a yellow circle) under Network Adaptors. If there are none, then it worked! If you do see any in a different category (Sound, video, game controllers for example), look on the webpage for any drivers for that category. After I re-installed drivers for the LAN adaptor, I also had to re-install drivers for the onboard sound card as well.

Anyway, hope this helps you! It should, I had the exact same problem :D

Cant use cable internet

Going to assume the LAN port doesn't have drivers installed. Is it a card, or onboard (built onto the motherboard)? We need either the card model info or the motherboard's make/model. From there we can track down the drivers that should fix your issue.

Hi. Please check first if your computer was able to detect the device. You can look for this device in control panel then click system then click device manager. Your wireless adapter should be present under network adapters. f computer was able to detect the wireless adapter. Try to turn off/on the wireless switch. Usually, wireless switch is located infront of the laptop or on the side. You can also try pressing Fn + F5 key to disable/enable wireless network card.

Lan card not detected

Typically if the card is not detected it might be a fault in the card. Have you tried to connect the card to another computer to see?
In any case LAN cards should by automatically detected with no problems.

I have a laptop dv9210. my wireless card does not detect internet so i purchaesed another only this one does not detect either. how do i troubleshoot. light is amber on front of laptop. other laptops in...

Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Click the '+' in front of Network Adapters.
Are both the "built-in" and the "add-on" wireless adapters listed?
Are there any "yellow" or "red" marks associated?
Double-click one of the adapters, and choose "enable".
Repeat for the other adapter.

Failing the above, find a "geeky" friend who can trouble-shoot,
or take your computer to any computer-store, for trouble-shooting.

I am not clear whether your card is lost or lancard is not getting detected by computer

>>If it is lost then you can connect your computer by USB Cable by installing the drivers for the USB if the USB is not getting detected.

>>If your computer is not able to detect the Lan Card.

1)Check the computer in safe mode with networking by pressing the F8 or any Function key whether the card is showing in Device manager or not

>> Steps for Device manager:
Click start> Click run> Type devmgmt.msc> check under network adapters or in other devices

2) Check whether the Card is properly plugged in the Mother Board of the computer

3) If it is then check the Lan Card by plugging it into another slot

Wireless LAN problem

Make sure that the built-in wireless lan is disabled. If your pc is XP or vista, uninstall the new WIRELESS LAN(go to control panet, add/remove programs), select the Atheros Software. Leave the WIRELESS ADAPTER connected to your pc. Insert the disc, do not run the set up. RESTART THE PC. The drivers for the WIRELESS ADAPTER should install, if not load drivers manually.
MAKE SURE WIRELESS ZERO CONFIGURATION for XP is running. You should be able to detect wireless networks.
