The Internet used to run from my modem, through a router and I had an ethernet cable to my main computer and Wi-Fi to my laptop. Since I had to restore my computer the cable now goes straight to my laptop from the modem and my computer has no Internet.
I tried plugging the ethernet cable directly into the computer from my modem but it doesn't recognise it. I tried setting it up a connection but it's asking for a user name and password that I don't have.
How can I get the Internet back on my computer through the ethernet cable (no router, just from the modem)?

>> Type ipconfig /release and press enter <<
I have always found that after this command you should type ipconfig /renew
This will reset / renew the connection directly after you "released" it -

Is the current modem a combo router or just a single port modem with no wifi capability?

Does both your laptop and main computer lose connection when connected to the modem?
