ok it is an onboard network card.

well my modem is hooked up to a different computer in a different room so i have an ethernet cable plugged into my motherboard running down the hall into that modem

Ok so is computer 2 ethernet cable running into the modem or into the router
or is it a combined modem router.
Could I have the make and model. If it is not a combined then make and model of both.

ok so today i went out and boght a network card,installed it and i had no internet connection.Then i took the modem(made by RCA) and the router(linksys) and put them on my newly built pc and the dell they were hooked up to now connects to the internet via an ethernet cable.To sum that up the custom computer now is hooked up to the modem and router(modem:RCA router:linksys) and the old dell is connected via an ethernet cable.Basically they switched places in the way that they are connected.


Still im not connected to the internet on my custom pc.

also i dont know if i have a tcpip on my custom pc.What is a tcpip and how can i check for it?
