Can not connect desktop through Lan connection

I have been using this desk top for awhile with no problem but the other day we had a storm. A little information on the computer. I put it together myself, running Windows Ultimate 7, 64 bit. A gigabyte motherboard with it's built in lan connection. Actually a GA-P35-DS3L version 2. I'm trying to think of things that have been asked of others. The main problem happened the other day after a storm whether it was the cause or not our modem went out. We were sent another modem and it is a Net Gear modem and wireless router combo. After activating it I could not get the desk top to connect online. Our lap tops have no problem connecting wireless. After going into my device manager I can not find the Network Adapter. Someone said that either it got hit or a setting was some how made to stop that connection. My Lan light is orange instead of the green usually seen when working. Any ideas of what has happened or a way to reconfigure my Network adapter?
