Question about Computers & Internet
Did it work before? Is this a new install? Try replacing the cable with a known to be good one. You may have used a "crossover" cable by accident, in which case it won't work at all. You need a "patch" cable. Sometimes the wires connected inside the wall jack can get loose. Pull the wall jack and inspect the wire connections. Use a small screwdriver to push the wires into the slots if any look loose.
It's possible that the network adapter (NIC) drivers are corrupt. Check "device manager" to re-install the driver. Also, the router may be misconfigured.
Sometimes this problem can be solved by shutting down the computer, then pulling the power cable on the router and let it sit unpowered for a minute or so. Then re- power up the router. Once the lights are green, boot the computer and it should come up.
