It depends.  If it is a Turbo or an Auto adapter, I think the cards are
dead in the watter (or close to it) if you don't use lanaid or have a good
bios to configure them.

Try booting lanaid if it is one of these cards, configure it, and it
should go into 'Enabled' mode.  Most likely it's currently disabled.
