    Are the drivers for your network adapter installed?

    Right click My Computer.

    Select Hardware

    Select Device Manager

    Look for Network Adapter.

    Is it is missing or has a yellow exclamation, then the NIC drivers have not been installed.

    If the Network Adapter shows up fine, then create the Internet Connection as follows (one method):

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > Communications > New Connection Wizard.

    The wizard will lead you through the process.

    In the end you will be asked whether you want to create a desktop icon, opt for yes.
