reinstall of Windows 7 - Can't connect to internet wired thru router

Hi! I'm Chrissy. I recently reinstalled windows 7. That all went well and I had the desired outcome. One little problem though - no internet. I'm directly connected to my Linksys E2000 router. When I connect the ethernet cable into its Jack, the light comes on. The wireless is working fine (I'm connected to it right now, using my phone to type this very post.) The ethernet controller in my device manager has a on the icon. I have no ida what to do, what drivers to install ... anything. I'm at a complete standstill. Any help? Thanks so very much

Have you tried rebooting your modem and router, then trying to connect?

Welcome Chrissy,

Is this a laptop or desktop computer ?

There is usually a sticker on the computer somewhere that has the manufacturers name & model number. Unless it is a custom (home) built computer.
