I recently had to re-install my OS. After I did so I am now only able to connect to my cable modem via a USB cable. When attempting to use an ethernet cable my modem flashes "link" and the connector at my computer flashes but I get nothing. I have tried everything short of starting over with the OS again. any help?!?

Did you install the driver for your NIC?
connect to the net via usb, run windows update and look for the optional updates for drivers.
