guys i wonder if you can help me with this one

i have a small network set up with 3 wireless pc's (XP), 1 laptop (XP)(wireless) & 2 wired pc's(1-vista & 1-XP) & what happened was the wired pc running XP just died a horrible death & i have had to buy a new pc. the new pc is an HP Pavilion a6511 running vista.

my problem is that i can't seem to connect it to the internet or to the existing network via the LAN cable. i would prefer to connect it directly to the internet as this is to become the main pc on the network that the others run through.

any advice would be appreciated thanks

i have sorted it for some reason it was the position on the back of the router that was the problem. as soon as i moved it the conn came straight on.
thanks to all who have been trying to find a solution for me
