I have recently moved my computer sch that it is within reasonable reach of an Ethernet connection, but prior to this I used a Wireless Networking card (a TP-Link I believe). However, when I plug it in (into the motherboard port), I get no kind of connection. I had a similar experience when I first built my computer, and tried to connect my monitor to the motherboard and got no output (I thought I needed to install some drivers before using the already inserted Graphics card.).
TL;DR So is the Network card (With no Ethernet port) overriding the mother board (With the ethernet port).

First you need check in Device manager the your ethernet (lan device) is working and is enabled. In windows 10 right click the windows icon then click on device manager, click on network adapters, right click to enable it, for example mine says realtek PCie FE Family controller.

Also you will have to check in your bios settings to make sure the network card is enabled, also graphics card to use it, switch from onboard graphics to pci express,

To find you motherboard info install cpuz

open installing it open it up and click on the mainboard tab, write down the Motherboard Make and model number, then post on here so I can find drivers if you don't have the disk.
