disconnected media?

  gav.zilla 18:03 10 Nov 2005

could anyone tell me why, when trying to connect up a router, my lan connection is enabled but says it has a cable unplugged and in cmd ipconfig the lan media is disconnected yet my desktop still recognises it. my lap top connects to the internet no probs but the desktop won't.
many thanks for any help.
