I would suggest that since you appear to have a RealTek NIC, Find out what NIC you have, go to the manufactors website and follow the instructions, naturally you may need to do this from another machine and use a USB memory stick to transfer the drivers.

Also this is not urgent, not to me, don't use such words here, they just make people want to help you less.
