Recently, I installed two new sticks of RAM and a new hard drive into my computer. After doing this, both my on board network card and PCIe network card do NOT identify when there is a working cable plugged into them. I cannot, thusly, connect to the internet in a wired way.

I'm at a complete loss, here. I'm running BIOS version F10c, and the NICs worked under this version up until this most recent install.

Where should I start to fix this issue?

Thanks in advance.

You'll need to install LAN Card drivers..What is your LAN Card model or Motherboard model? (PC make and model) If it's an integrated card, you'll need to install the Motherboard Drivers.What is showing in Device Manager for your NIC?

I appreciate the suggestion, but I've quite literally stumbled upon a solution myself!

It seems that power was not being appropriated correctly to the devices...which is why the orange LED for the onboard LAN would stay lit even post-shutdown.

After killing the power, reseating the RAM (it was seated properly, but, just a precautionary measure), both cards started working again.

Hopefully this can give someone something else to try in the future, if the need arises.
