If you have the yellow mark next to ethernet controller then you need to download and install the Windows 7 (or Vista) driver for it.

Fill in your System Specs and we can help you find the right one. Click on User CP at the top then Edit System Spec on the left.

If its a custom build go to the manufacturer of the motherboard website. If its a pc bought from dell or hp.. etc... the go to their site and look for drivers.

Here is an easy way to capture ipconfig output:

Click on Start then Run or press Window key (next to left Ctrl key) +R and paste the following into the Run box, exactly as shown, including double quotes:

cmd /c "ipconfig /all > postme.txt & ping yahoo.com >> postme.txt & notepad postme.txt & del postme.txt"

and press ENTER.

A file will open in Notepad. Please copy and paste the contents here. Close the Notepad window and the file will be deleted and the Command Prompt window will also close.

If you don't have a Run selection off the Start menu, see here: Enable Run Command on Windows 7 or Vista Start Menu

There are various solutions for this problem. The best working solutions appear to be about a one third down the page.

Found them 10 seconds. But if it's not a driver problem try the link in my first post about 1/3 way down the page there are many working solutions for this problem.
