    Are any lights appearing near the port where the cable is plugged in? Look on both ends of the cable.

    Check your RJ45 cables (network cables). Are the ends loose? Perhaps the clips on the ends are broken? Does it click when inserted into the ports?

    If you tried a second cable, that would suggest a problem with either the computer's adapter or the device to which you are connecting.
    Do you have access to another computer to test the cables and the connected to device's ethernet connection?
    If another computer works through that connection then the cables and other device are probably OK. Problen would then be isolated to your computer.
    Do you have another way to connect the problem computer to the internet, maybe wireless, so you can post information directly here?

    What does the cable connect?
    Make/model of computer?
    Make/model of etherneet adapter? (Device Manager)

    Open Device Manager, Network Adapters.
    What is the ethernet adapter listed?
    Any problem indicators showing?
    What is listed as Device Status on the general Tab?
    What is listed for the Driver? Provider, Date, Version.

    Make sure you have the latest driver for the adapter. Check the computer manifacturer's site.

    Post screenshots if possible. Here is how to do that.

    In Vista and later you can use the Snipping Tool
