    contact your ISP . I think you are not able to reach gateway.

    Hi, benjgj27, and welcome to the forums. Since you say you are a student, I wonder about a couple of things:


    1. Are you sing this on campus or from your house?
    2. Has the connection that you are trying to use now ever worked before on another machine?
    3. Have you tried another cable?
    4. (This only applies if you are at school, and as in a school building) Have you contacted the network administrators / IT dept to see that the jack you are trying to use is actually live?
