Why can i not connect to the Internet via an Ethernet cable connected to the LAN port on my laptop and to the Ethernet port on the cable modem. Motorola Surfboard SB5101 USB Cable modem.
I can connect via a USB cable with no problem's.
Each time i try to connect via the Ethernet cable all i get is a error message telling me to check the cable connections.

Hi, perhaps you have a dodgy Ethernet cable, have you got another one you could try?

The cable was supplied by my ISP along with the USB cable.
I suppose it my be dodgy. I will have to try another one as you suggest. Will have to go out and buy one.
