Connect laptop to internet via Ethernet cable


Sep 25, 2013

I just bought a new laptop and have yet to buy a wireless router. However, my PC has a Ethernet Cable Connection that i could use in the meanwhile, but I can't get it to work. Plugging in the ethernet cable does nothing: nothing shows in the Network and Sharing center, and not even the green light on the cable lights up. I tried installing the Realtek LAN Driver that i have on the PC, but at the end of the installation a message pops up, saying "The Realtek Network Controller was not found. If Deep Sleep Mode is enabled, Please Plug the Cable". How can i get it to work?

Thank you!
