Then it's not the cable, it's the network adapter inside the laptop that's faulty, or it's driver is not installed.

So you tried the same ethernet cable with other computers. The cable works fine on all except this one. Is this what you are saying ? Apart from the message, can you connect to your router with this cable or go out to internet ?

If the notebook came with Windows 8, that means it is new. I suggest you to contact manufacturer about the problem.

If the notebook is upgraded to Windows 8, then do as phil22 said and install proper drivers for the ethernet card.
