    Are you on DSL, cable or dial up? And which country might help too.

    Do you have a seperate drivers CD? Dell, for example, includes such drivers on a seperate CD. Try installing that, if you have one. Otherwise, look on the computer manufacturer's website for drivers.

    go to your device manager
    cp->system->hardware->device Mgr
    expand [+] Network Adapters
    there should be no red/yellow marks on them

    if so, yellow is a bad config or IRQ conflict
    red is a bad install/driver
