Please just follow the below steps and you can fix your problem easily.

1.First unplug all the power cord for safety and open cabinet of your system.

2. Remove the metal blank to open the slot up. Firmly insert the Ethernet card into that slot. To make sure that the card is firmly in place, check that the gold/copper strips on the Ethernet card are inserted approximately three-quarters of the way or more into the slot.

3. Lock the securing lever down; it should click when firmly pressed down.

4. Gently close the case. Plug in the computer's cables and turn it on.

5. Install software if necessary. The computer may need to be rebooted depending on the operating system.

This is it. Now you are done

Have a great day.
