Hi there I am booting up a friends computer and now trying to acess the net, I am running through a router and to my cable modem...... I have my personal computer which can see the network, but the one I am loading can't access.... will not even acess the router config.....

Is there any settings that I might be missing .

It is a older IBM PC 300PL with a onboard network, it has some different settings in the bios for network that I am not to use to yet.........can someone help....

Sorry.. I forgot to mention that when I plug in or unplug the network cable it will detect that and show that there was something connected/disconnected..... But I always get limited or no connectivity

Lets start by clearing the Resolver Cache and releasing the IP address.
Go to the Start and then Run. Type in cmd and press <enter>. At the command screen type in ipconfig /FlushDNS and press <enter>.
Next in the same command window type in ipconfig /release and press <enter>.
Close all windows and restart your computer.

Try setting the IP address on the computer having trouble to static, rather than trying to get it from DHCP.
