Hello I got a new Ethernet Cable yesterday Rj45 15 metres from Amazon it plugged and played was working last night till about 2am I went to sleep turned computer on in the morning and it doesn't work?

So I can't connect to the internet what do I do?

The other computers in the house connect to the internet with other ethernet cables.

But why isn't mine working its not cut or anything I checked it 3 times over. I also took the wires out of the router and back in and still no luck.

What do you suggest I do?

I know the problem now.

The slot where the cable goes into is a dodgy the light doesn't flash I've gotta push down on it for it to connect at the moment I've got my computer at a angle so the wire hasn't moved. Does it sound like I need a new slot fit it. What are they called?

My computer is Vista 32 bit any other information you need?

You could try finding the "sweet spot" so to speak for the cable and duck tape it into place.
Ive done that before and it works.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Yeah, new network card. They're cheap.
You'll have to open your computer case and at look at your current ethernet port (that's where you plug in your cable).
It may be located on a separate PCI card (like in a picture from Amazon). In that case, you simply replace existing card with a new one.
It may be also located just on a motherboard. In this case, you'll have to see, if you have empty PCI slot to fit a new card in.
