Default major internet problems..

Hello I just bought a new laptop and have tried desperately to connect to the internet, but it just does not work. I have tried using a direct ethernet cable line, but it says that i have limited or no connectivity. Whenever I try to connect wirelessly, the connection works, then it disconnects, then connects, ect (off and on). I have gone to the command line and tried to find my ip address, but it says internet connection media. Can someone please offer some suggestion? I would greatly appreciate it.

Have you tried unplugging your router and modem for 30 seconds? Give that a shot and then boot your computer up with the ethernet cable plugged in.

Are your drivers updated for your ethernet card as well? Also, on your modem are all the connect lights on? Maybe your ISP is having problems...same with your router, are all the lights on that should be on? Maybe if none of that works try resetting your router via the reset switch on the back.
Say what you will about the Ten Commandments, you must always come back to the pleasant fact that there are only ten of them.
