Ok ok ok lets do those steps my friend

first of all reinstall the ethernet driver, try to connect now.
second disable all security programmes (if any program is expired then uninstall it)

third go to start
click run
type cmd, click ok
type the following commands and hit enter after every line:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew
netsh winsock reset
netsh firewall reset
regsvr32 softpub.dll
regsvr32 wintrust.dll
regsvr32 initpki.dll (that takes few minutes)
regsvr32 mssip32.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml4.dll

now reboot the computer

let me know what happened with u if that doesnt work we will try few more steps and if u r running windows vista tell me to make some small changes in step three

The lights means the port is active and working. Does the lan connection show as connected on the computer, what IP are you getting if any? Does the college use a proxy?

When I connect my modem to my laptop, all the lights come on except the pc link light. I have already unplugged it and reset it and it still doesn't work. What more can I do?


If the ONLY light not illuminated is your PC link light then that generally indicates a physical disconnect between the modem and the laptop. If you can get the PC link light to light up when connecting to any other device (computer, router, anything), then you are most likely looking at the ethernet jack on the laptop being burnt out. Otherwise, try swapping the ethernet cord. If a different ethernet cord does not resolve the issue and the PC link light does not come on no matter what the modem is plugged into, you are looking at a faulty ethernet jack on the modem.

Internal modem is not working


Are you sure it's a modem port and not a ethernet port. They look very similar and people confuse them easily. The ethernet port is slightly larger though. So we can verify we're talking about the correct thing, are you using dialup to connect to the internet? or are you connecting to a broadband router or dsl modem?
in either case you should be able to get drivers on dell's website and copy them over to your laptop.

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Ethernet


Check the drivers for the ethernet port in the device manager to see if they are there. If so, then uninstall them and reboot. The machine will find the device and reinstall the drivers. This will correct the problem if it's a driver glitch. If the drivers are not there, then you will need to go to Toshiba's support site and download them. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "can't open the ethernet slot to insert card", could you be more specific and I'll see if I can help you through it.

Toshiba Satellite ethernet port disappeared...


I think you have answered your own problem, your wireless has possibly been zapped.
To test your ethernet adapter on your laptop connect it to a network hub, check the hub and see if you have a link light on the hub and or laptop..
To test your wireless router, connect it to a known working computer with a network card and check the router configuration, using the browser, if you cannot access it then its zapped.
