Question about Computers & Internet
Plug in the LAN cable (CAT 5) into your laptop network jack. Make sure the other side is plug into the network outlet jack. Now confirm that you have a link on your LAN adapter, if your laptop has lights for the LAN adapter built in. If it doesn't don't worry. If its connected windows xp will say if its connected or not. If its connected it will try to find a IP address. Make sure DHCP is enabled (Should be set as DHCP as default anyways) if your laptop doesn't get and IP address then there's something wrong with the network your connected to and not your laptop. Contact the system administrator (IT guys) in charged of that network.
**** IF AND ONLY IF***
IF there's no network icon in the taskbar tray then your network adapter is disabled. To enable this right click the network icon on your desktop and select properties now a windows opens up and right click on your LAN adapter and select enable... let windows do its magic and you should be back to normal.
