neither did you ;)

did it come installed in a new pc like a dell or hp? or installed with a used machine? OS?

if it was with a new pc, the restore cd, if you have one, should have drivers on it.
if not, if it really comes down to it, remove the card and find out who made it, or at least the chipset, and google for a driver for it.

So get the nvidia platform drivers for your motherboard which will include the lan drivers along w/ all other hardware drivers.
