Toshiba Satellite laptops

I have two friends that have been given secondhand ones, both show the same problem in that an internet conection can not be established on either.
One of the laptops I installed a brand new copy of XP-Home to overwrite the German version of the os. However I could not establish an internet conection to my own isp on it in order to activate the os online, I had to do that by phone. My other friend also can not establish an internet conection on his. His os is Win2K.
Any advice would be gratefuly accepteted.

How are they trying to connect hard wire or wireless?

Are the Local Area Connection and the Wireless Area Connection showing in the

Network Connection Folder and are they Enable

On the both unit check that the Lan card and network set up is correct and that the drivers is installed
