I've been attempting to connect my desktop computer to the internet through an ether net cable; however, after plugging in the cable and trying to access the internet, internet explorer says unable to connect because you have no network card. I've used the internet with my desktop computer before, was using a wireless lynksys adapter before attempting to use an ethernet cable. I'm not to sure what the issue is, any insights?

Remove power from the PC, router and modem. Connect your desktop directly to the modem with an ethernet cable. Power the modem up. Wait 60 sec, then power the PC up. Press Windows key + R. Type cmd. Type ipconfig /all. Do you see "Ethernet Adapter Local Area Connection" listed? If so, is the default gateway 192.168.xxx.xxx?
