Ther kernel should automatically load the needed kernel module for your ethernet card, in your case the kernel doesn't recognize your ethernet card. Your best option is probably to use your wireless network card instead, you can use iwctl to configure your wireless network card mentioned in the Arch Installation guide step 1.7. After you have installed Arch you will be able to do more and search for the right module and install it in order to get your ethernet card recognized and working.

If you know what chipset you have could probably also try finding the driver and installing the driver in your live boot. Then manually load it since the live iso does allow you to install packages, but why not work with your wireless card since it does recognize that and it's better to keep things simple so work with what you have.

When you are connected to your wifi with your wireless card are you able to reach the internet?
Code:
ping -c3 archlinux.org
