What kind of internet do you have (cable, dsl, dialup, etc...)?

If you have cable or dsl, what are the lights on the modem doing? Is there a light on the back of your computer where the cable connects (the cable that goes from the modem to your computer)? Open a command prompt (start > run > type cmd) and type ping 127.0.0.1 and report what it says here.

If you have dialup, please explain what the error message you are recieving says.

Did you try typing ping 127.0.0.1 in the command prompt? it will tell us whether or not your network card is correctly installed. 127.0.0.1 is a loopback address, it allows your networkcard to ping itself, if it recieves an error message it means your network card is installed incorrectly.

As for the router, you do not need drivers to connect to a router. It is an automatic thing just hook it up and go.

Ok, well from those pictures it's obvious you have a problem with your network card. Do you have a driver cd or floppy? If not we can find your drivers online, but it's just easier if you have the original drivers.

the 1394 connection there is a firewire connection and won't connect you to the internet. can you ping the other computer on your network?
