Katesdad it would be most helpful to us if you could be more specific with your problem
Also if you could please post more information on the make and model number of your computer.
Usually when you connect an Ethernet cable to a computer, you have instant access to the Internet.
That is unless your Ethernet card or NIC has been disabled for some reason.
Usually native windows drivers make most NIC work, however in some cases, specific drivers need to be installed.
If you go to your Windows control panel and look for Network adapters, you will see either a exclamation mark or an red X under this field if something is wrong with the device or its drivers are missing.
We do not at this point have enough information to go on, not without your computers make and model number.
