    More to the point what happens when you plug in the cord,

    Things to check,

    How is the internet given to the PC? ICS , Router , Cable Modem other

    click start > Run >winipcfg> enter, what IP address do you have ?

    Go into network properties and see if the network card is listed.

    Has it worked before.

    Is the network card known to be working.

    Is the card Plug and Play, is it a PCI or ISA card,

    Is the BIOS set to plug and play = yes

    Answer these questions and we may be able to give you an idea where to start..
