A silly question perhaps. What happens if you launch Internet Explorer?

No, I'm not much of a football fan.

I think I chose 'Home'.

I think so, but I'll try restarting again.

I'm not watching the game if that's what you mean. I just thought I would mess their game up if I disconnected the modem, but as it turns out it didn't because they only need internet if they are watching netflix.

Last questions from me for today:

Were you prompted for Home, Work, Public when you first tried to connect?
Have you restarted the machine since installing the network drivers? This shouldn't matter. When you get done here, why not shut down the box until tomorrow?

I'm not sure that it's a card. My receiver screws in at the back of the tower.

If Device Manager tells you a driver is the latest then you are most likely online. Did you choose Automatic?

Open Internet Explorer to check the web.
