One start is to see what windows uses. The command sysinfo32 is used in windows or the system information would tell you about the nic. That can be later helpful in linux.

If you have a pci or onboard nic card then in linux you can check it with the command lspci. If you have a usb or other then you need a different command.

Post the output of the linux command ifconfig or maybe ifonfig -a first.

@deepak27ak: The OP clearly states that the Ethernet card works in Windows, but not in Linux and that he searches for a way to get it working in Linux. This is NOT a Windows problem, so please stop to recommend Windows forums for this Linux problem. Another question would be why you think that on Linux drivers are not needed, but I don't want to derail the thread.


@amarnad.b: Hi and welcome to LQ. As posted by the previous posters already, we can only help you when we know which LAN card is actually built into your machine. To get this knowledge we need to see the output of the command lspci.

Apologies..It seems its high time I get my spectacles

For the problem of OP I am not sure about the distro but I have faced this type of problem with RHEL 6 some times
Where I manually create a eth0 file

Code:
# vi /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-eth0
and mention the details of Ethernet card

as if the ethernet card is visible in windows then it must be there in linux as well
just check the o/p of lspci as said by other members and if you see Ethernet controller then
try

Code:
#ifup eth0
