Internert set up issue

  1. I just finished building a computer for my brother last night, and while trying to setup an internet connection ran into some problems. First off I have the M2N32-SLI DELUXE Wireless Edition Motherboard(I did not mean to get the wireless edition). My problem is that I can't get the system to recognize th\e plain old Ethernet cable I have plugged in in the back thats is going to my cable modem, so it won't recognize that it has internet connection. It just wants to keep trying to set up a wireless network.

    Hi

    Follow the wifi wizard until it finishes.

    Go into device manager and make sure that the hard wired NIC is shown

    Start >\Settings > control panel >network connections .

    It should show the Wifi NIc and the hardwired Nic, right click the WIFI Nic and choose disable, if the wired is disabled right click and enable it.

    Should do you...

    Regards

    Hi

    Then it may be disabled in the BIOS, or it may be a choice system, WIFI or hardwired in the BIOS.
