I can't tell from those pics, but it says your NIC in Enabled. You'll need to look inside the physical Ethernet port to see if those little wires are in place or even present.

If your router is configured for DHCP(assigns IP addresses automatically), then open Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center, click on Local Area Connection/Properties, make sure Internet Protocol Version 4 has a check mark by it, double click on it, and make sure "Obtain an IP address automatically" and "Obtain DNS server address automatically" are checked.

If your router is configured to assign IP adresses manually, then you will have to check "Use the following IP address" and "Use the following DNS server addresses" in the above location, and manually assign the various addresses for each.

Also, if your router is configured for "MAC Address Filtering", then you will have to obtain your laptop network card's MAC address in System Information, and enter it in your router's online configuration.
If your laptop came with a wireless(Wi-Fi) network card, then do the same for it.

Unless it's wireless, your isp may require you to open a second connection thru them. I know when i had Cox cable they had to open a second port for wife's computer. Just something to think about. Wireless is no pr;oblem if your router supports it.
