Ok, that is all set.
You asked earlier if I had used the same ethernet cable hooking up a different computer, what does that change in aspects to my new computer?
*Also why is my light orange instead of green*
If the same cable setup was used before then we know that is all fine.
It is most likely something to do with your computer if the router and cable are unchanged. For example I got a new computer and because the cable and router worked before, I just plugged my new computer in and it worked using DHCP.
How is it your PC is aquiring an IP address, did you statically type it or is it using DHCP?
