making linux recognise my network card

I computer running fedora 12 was running on a wireless network card and one day it just stopped. I tried the build-in ethernet card as well as an PCL card. These do not work as well. I have tested that indeed it does not recognise both cards by typing ifconfig eth0 and ifconfig eth1 respectively. The message that I received was "device not found".
