Is your ethernet enabled?

Check in devise manager.

just a thought.

Can't see resetting would help if it's working OK on the laptop. Has it worked on the PC before? If not, it's probably the configuration of the PC - I'll leave the explanation of that to the experts!

Try the cable the other way round. Sounds daft I know, but it works sometimes. Worked on mine, and worked on a few others I suggested it to.

Run the CD your ISP provided you with to set up your internet connection.
