Are you connected directly to the modem or through a router?

From your post, the wirless connection works, but the wired does not correct? If you check Device Manager, any errors in there?

Click on the Start button, in the search field type in cmd, hit enter. In the DOS window that comes up, type in "ipconfig /all". You should see the IP address for all of your network adapters, post what you get from that.
