What do you get when you type ipconfig in the command prompt box?
Check in the device manager under network adapters to see if the Ethernet adapter has a driver and says that it is working properly. If so, go into the network control panel and make sure that it is set to automatically obtain an IP address. Look under change adapter settings, right click properties for the LAN adapter, highlight Internet Protocol Version 4 and hit the properties button to get to the configuration.
