    I reinstalled windows on my other computer and now I can't set up the cable internet connection. The computer i'm on right now is using a network adapter to connect to my router, which is connected to my other computer.

    I go to network connections and click "set up new connection" I go through everything (Connect to internet>set up my connection manually>connect using broadband connection that is always on) then in the end it says broadband connections should already be configured and ready to use. But I still can't get on the internet. and nothing shows up in the network connections.

    What do I do?

    Have you restarted the cable modem? (unplug the power for about 15 seconds)

    If you are trying to connect a PC to the internet without a router via cable modem you can try these commands (after going to start > run > cmd):
    ipconfig /release
    ipconfig /renew

    if you are using a router then you can try resetting it to factory settings (or at least check that it isn't blocking your PC)

    hope that helps [​IMG]

    Sounds like you need to install your network card driver.
    Press Windows key + Pause/break at the same time:
    Go to the hardware tab: Device Manager. If there is Yellow ! marks you will need drivers for those peices of hardware to work.

    I am guessing thats what you will need for your network card.
