Let's start with the basics. The audio driver installed and not using the default Windows driver? If not,

Conexant Audio Driver Version 4.121.0.50

also if the driver isn't installed then you won't see an option like this in the Windows recording properties,

Attachment 101101
I downloaded and installed that Conexant thing. Then I restarted the computer.
This is what I get:

P.S. It is Windows 7. I just like running the old school graphics.

Guitar port? New one on me.

When the drivers installed, it should have also installed a control panel for it as well (or at least all others i can think of; Creative, Realtek, Via, etc; do). Check the Start menu, Control Panel, Notification are (clock in the corner), and see if there is anything Contexant related and if there is see if there is the option to set it to Line In.

Yeah, I run my electric guitar and mics and everything through this GuitarPort. On my old desktop, I was able to run the monitor part of the GuitarPort interface through the line-in so I could hear it on the computer speakers without unplugging them from the computer and plugging them exclusively into the GuitarPort headphone jack.
So basically i could hear all the computer system sounds AND monitor my guitar at the same time.
If that makes any sense.
And if it does, I hope it's offers you some useful information...?
Anyway, that's why I need a line in.

But there's nothing new on the notifications or the start menu or the control panel.
....Do you think I should try installing it again?
