Default cannot create internet connection

my friend is staying over at my house for a week so he brought over his comp so we went out and got an extra Ethernet cable. i plugged it in my linksy router which is in my moms room and ran the cable to my room. i connected to his computer and he got internet. i turned on my computer and my internet was gone. i checked the router and the light was on so i checked my connections and there was no internet connection. i tried to create a new connection but whenever im done nothing happens. --> Create a new connection>connect to the internet>setup my connection manually>Connect using a broadband connection that is always on> then finish but nothing happens. help anyone?

could be several things, a faulty cable, nic, port on the router, etc..
you shouldnt need to setup a new connection. as long as the nic is enabled you just shuv the ethernet cable in and it obtains the ip and stuff automatically.

maybe its best if your friend checks it out

Its not showing up at all? Is your network card onboard or a pci card. If its onboard it may be disabled in your BIOS which is why its not showing up in the device manager. If its a pci card and its not showing up your card may be dead.
