How do i join a new desktop PC to work network. ?

Hi everyone, i have a new desktop PC that i need to join to a work network via ethernet cable. I connected the network cable to PC (other end of cable connected to network port), but the PC is not discovering any network during and after win 10 OODE set up. Am i doing it wrong or i need to change domain name?

Apogies if i sound dumb, but i am not too savvy with this. I need internet acces to install a software and to check windows update on the PC. 

Thank you in advance fpr any help.

    A couple of questions: Is the network in house? OR are you trying to connect to a work network that is housed in another building?  I mean, are you home and trying to connect to work?  

    If you and the network are in the same location, then you may need to contact your IT dept to get the correct settings to connect.  It may be as simple as connecting via the workgroup and IP settings. 

    If you are trying to connect to a work network while You are home and the network is in another building, you may need a VPN setup to access it.  Again, contact the work IT Dept and ask them for the setup, which vpn they recommend etc.

      Contact your IT Dept. They may have things which need to be installed.  I worked IT for many years, we used a networking software called Novel.  They will help you get your computer set up properly.

    If Network port is dead,your PC will discover nothing.

    Depending on how your network was set up, you may need the PC joined to the domain before Group Policies can be applied to set up things like mapped drives, printers and Internet proxies. Only a Domain Administrator can do this or someone with delegated permissions.
