There maybe a couple of different reasons why you can not connect.

the first thing i would try in this specific order is

#1 make sure your laptop has the network card enable in network connections

#2 make sure you are set for dynamic ip adressing.

#3 make sure all connections are good to the router

#4 once everything is powered up and connectted turn off your router and disconnect from the power let it sit there for a few seconds and the power it up your computers shouls come back on line.

if this does not do it reboot the laptop in question and check for connection

post back here and let me know what is happenning so i can go further to help you

What do you mean when you say CD port? You mean CD-ROM or CD drive? Also connecting to the internet is far too complicated to explain in one post. But if you want to repost, include your service provider, when you started service, what type of modem and/or router and type of computer.
hope this helps.
just remove the CD drive and replace. If you're not sure how to then take it to repair store. If you're not great with computers, have the internet company's tech support help you. You really need someone on the phone.

Hello there, Windows messenger is the free program that comes with Windows, its not very good so you can download "Windows Live Messenger" which is what most people use. Either search in for "Windows Live Messenger" or copy and paste the following address into your web browser.
