Your problem is not related to your processor. You need to identify the manufacturer and the type of your network card and search the drivers or, if the lan card is integrated with the mainboard, go to the mainboard manufacturer's site and download the driver from their support/downloads page.
There is not enought information to suggest which motherboard you have. Take a look at your motherboard for the board identifier. You can also go to belarc.com and download a free board analyser. This program will give you the actual idenfier for the motherboard as well as other useful information for your hardware and software.
Once you identify the motherboard, go to http://support.amd.com/us/psearch/Pages/psearch.aspx?type=2.7
to get the drivers.
Will you be using the same motherboard? If so you need to know the board manufacturer and model. Check the manufacturers website to find out the largest processor supported. You may have to update your Bios. Use caution and follow all instructions very carefully or you will end up with a boat anchor!
have you tried running benchmark software with both the 5600 and the 6000? if you run say aquamark or 3dmark 06 or 07 and compare the scores you will see which is faster then what... if the 5600 is in fact showing that its faster then you may have to update your bios so it recognizes the new cpu some mobos i have messed with had this problem but after flashing the bios it corrected the issue esp if the cpu was released say a year later from when the mobo was released. make sure you have amd driver software installed too this gives you a performance boost if you install the amd driver software rather then running windows drivers that automaticly installs on your computer when you install windows most forget about the drivers for the cpu because only recently amd started making drivers available directly from their sites. here is the link
