I am trying to connect to a Netgear router with Local Area Connection.

In Vista, Looking under control panel>network connections i see the following:

I have tried connecting and then get the error message that it is "unplugged." I then checked both the router and
my laptop and it still gives me the same error message.

computes are nuts. I have learned sometimes that simply restarting them solves everything. do i need to just restart?

How do i know if it is working or not? It seems faster but then, it still says "unplugged".

I know that I will get a faster connection speed with Local Area Connection and that is what I want.
