Laptop Internet HELP!!!

Ive got a Fujitsu Lifebook S and I simply cant figure out how to get it to connect to my broadband...

I have a router downstairs which goes into my main PC fine and an ethernet cable which runs upstairs into my laptop. I also use an iBook which is fine I plug the ethernet cable and its away..

I simply cant get my Lifebook to connect though... Ive tried setting up evertype of connection and its always 'unable to establish connection'...

I did manage to create a 'parrelel wire' connection under advanced connections and got -
'Connected to remote server
Verify User and Pass
Unable to connect to remote server...'

so yeah any help is appreciated...

ok on my connections I only have ONE connection and tats called -

LAN 2...
Zoom 4 USB Network Adapter

and these two tutorials say I need to enable sharing but there is no enable table in the advanced properties?
