Click start
Click Control Panel
Click Network and Internet
Click Network and Sharing Centre
Click Manage Network Connections
You should see something like this:~

Above you see Local Area Connections
Right click on it and click on enable...

Ok Right click on
Realtek RTL8101 in Network adapters,
Click on Uninstall

Then right click on Network adapters
click on scan for hardware changes and the adapter should reaplly itself.
Now go back to Network connections the adapter should now present itself.
Click on enable and you should have a connection at this point....
