My problem is on my counsel, I think. I have an icon on the bottom of my screen that says that I have an unplugged connection. When I set up my computer all of the connections are in for everything. I do have one large white plug left, but have no idea where it might go on the back of my counsel. The little message reads, local area nework; a connection is unplugged. Can you please help me????

The connection your speaking of is an RJ45 port for a CAT5 - ethernet cable. This connection is used for home networks or for people with cable modem/DSL connections. It is a little bigger than a common phone jack.

So, if you don't have anything plugged into it... and that is what I understand through your post, then all is well.

Good luck,
