    Please post the following for a working PC and for the problem PC.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use removable media and a text (Notepad) file to get the results to a computer with internet access.

    I assume that is your working PC. How about your NON working PC.

    Paste the results into a file. The easiest kind of file to use for this purpose is a text (.txt) file. Unless you have another text editor you like I suggest using Notepad, which is part of all Windows versions.

    Save the file on a floppy disk, or a ZIP disk, or a CD, or a DVD, or a USB flash drive, or an external hard disk, or any other removable medium you can think of. Move the removable medium to a computer that has internet access. Copy the contents of the file to a message here.

    If using removable media (Floppy, Zip Disc, External Hard Drive, USB Flash drive), you can also have IPCONFIG save the results directly to the media. Saving to the "A" floppy would use a command line like ...
    IPCONFIG /ALL >A:\IPCFGLOG.TXT

    If burning to a CD or DVD, you could first save to the root of the C: drive with ...
    IPCONFIG /ALL >C:\IPCFGLOG.TXT
    and then have the burning software burn the file from the root directory.

    okay none of those options were available to me...amazingly...so i decided to write it all down and retype it in this message and here is what came up on the "non working pc"


    Microsoft Windows 2000[Version 5.00.2195]
    (C)Copyright 1985-2000 Microsoft Corp.
    C:\Documents and Settings\linda.BSEDA>IPCONFIG /ALL

    Host name......:LINDAPC
    Primary DNS Suffix.....:BSEDA.local
    Node Type......:Hybrid
    IP Routing Enabled......:NO
    WINS Proxy Enabled......:NO

    Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:
    Media State......:Cable Disconnected
    Description......:3Com3C920Integrated Fast

    Controller(3C905C-TX Compatible)
    Physical Address......:00-B0-D0-81-46-3C

    C:\Documents and Settings\linda.BSEDA>0-81-46-3C

    Is the Ethernet Port on the problem PC built in? Has the PC ever been rebuilt and drivers need reinstalling? Is the Local Area Connection disabled? (control panel>network connections - if it is right click and enable)

    Also, try cabling up the PC simultaneously to the laptop. If you only have one cable, shut down the laptop, disconnect the cable and wire in the PC to a separate port, then boot the PC.

    "Cable Disconnected" could mean bad LAN port on the router, bad cable or bad NIC as well as the diriver/settings issues hermes raised. Do you get a LED lighting on the router and on the computer when you plug the cable in?

    As hermes said, in Device Manager check for any missing drivers and make sure the connection is enabled.
