I bought an old Amada E500 notebook , from work , and even when I hook-up the ethernet ( I have high speed internet on my home computer already ) cable I am still unable to connect to the internet.
Could it be that my ethernet card is bad ?
I am pretty clueless when it comes to notebooks , but if I'm right , I think I will need to buy a wireless card as well as another ethernet card.
Any suggest on other things I might need to buy for my notebook to work properly ?

Re: cannot obtain internet
If you already have an ethernet card installed in the laptop, then it should be fine. did you try rebooting the modem that you are hooking the laptop to? Sometimes with different ISPs that is one of the major issues.

the best way to connect to your network would be using WZC utility right in windows, to make sure this is turned on follow the link below
After its turned on go Start>Control Panel>Network and Internet>Network and Sharing Center.
After entering here choose your network, if your modem has a security key (WPA, WEP, ETC..) make sure to enter that correctly.
If all is well it should connect without a problem.
Hope this helps, if this doesnt work comment and i will give further assistance
take it back to the place that you bought it. Sounds like you are having a issue with your motherboard.. If you can take it back i highly recommend it. A replacement motherboard could cost a high price depending on what computer you own.
680 Error is No Dial Tone, Make sure you are trying to connect with a Ethernet port, DSL will need a Modem, In between the computer and Phone jack (Sorry if im being too basic, but i want to make sure we cover EVERYTHING) Go in to the connections and try using the Ethernet adapter. Let me know where that gets ya
There are 3 ways to connect to the internet. Using a modem with a phone line, an ethernet cable that is hooked up to a high speed internet connection or using wireless. If the laptop does not have a modem, it may have wireless or an ethernet port. Ethernet is slightly larger than a phone jack. If there is wireless there should be a button to turn it on and off somewhere along the top of the laptop where the keyboard is. You could also put get type of those connections on a PCMCIA card which fits into the credit card like slots on the side.
