    Make sure you have a Cat.5 cable, if you have used the same cable in the past and it worked, there is no need to worry about the cable. Go online (on a different PC) and download drivers for your network card.

    DDP Beat me to it, If it shows it in the device manager, type the brand and model number into google along with the keyword 'drivers' and download new drivers for your card.

    @DDP, we posted at the exact same time... interesting...
