network shared drive problems

  cheapaschips 09:07 28 Nov 2006

i've just bought a network shared drive.
my system is...
main PC (win ME) hard wired to ntl broadband router, and one laptop taking a wireless feed.
i do as the instructions say, plug in lan cable and power cable, power up pc and drive then wait for the light to change from yellow to green. when it stays green, run the setup disk.
thing is it doesnt go green. it goes yellow green alternately which means it is not finding the PC. there are lights (4off)on the front of the router that light up when a hard wire is plugged in (there are 4 hard wire ports), the socket that the pc is plugged into is lit, but the network drive does not. i'm using the supplied ether cable, could it be the cable or something more sinister.?
