hi there. The ethernet card is an interface that allows your computer to be connected to a LAN (Local area network) and to a Cable/Dsl modem to be on the internet. The connector looks bigger than the one of a regular telephone jack (it's actually double). If you don't have the ethernet card you can't go on the internet or on a LAN.
From the back of the modem or router you should connect a cable to your ethernet card of yor computer. Only after you did that you can try to connect to the internet.
Let me know, or be more specific.
Not sure what OS you are usin but if it is XP try this -
1. Disable Windows Firewall
2. In Internet Options Control Panel go to the connection tab and then the LAN Settings where you can uncheck the "Automatically detect settings" button.
3. If you have any third party software, I would get rid of this and ensure that the"Windows Zero Configuration" in the Services menu is set to "Automatic" and the status is started.
Interestingly, Anti Virus programs sometimes interfere with wireless set up - you could see if it helps by disabling it whilst configuring your wireless. It might also be worth trying to connect without any encryption code & see if that will connect - you can then sort out the encryption. Hope this helps!
Do you mean an internet connection password or the systems login? If its the internet, the internet provider will need to assist in resetting the password because the connection is done through them. Let me know
