    Hi ggg522,
    You should open your device manager and make sure that your ethernet device is working correctly and that it is not disabled or a driver is missing. That is usually the main cause for this issue. If this has not been resolved yet please let me know what kind of desktop you have an also what Operating System (windows Xp, vista, win 7) that you are using and I can give you more detailed instructions.

      Thanks for replying, but I discovered the problem was rooted from my Bitdefender Antivirus, which blocked out my LAN cable from having access to the internet.
