Sorry if this is stating the obvious - but have you tried running the networking wizard?
Please do not PM me with queries for broadband help as I may not be able to respond.

Also check in Device Manager to see if you've actually got an ethernet device with drivers installed.
A reload often misses out drivers for significant components - typically LAN/wireless video and sound for starters.
