What type of internet connection do you have.

Are you using a switch

You will certainly have to use a crossover cable. If you haven't got one, the transmit pair is talking to the transmit pair and the recieve pair is listening to the other receive pair. No communication results. The system says: "check cables". :D

A crossover might have red protective boots. Otherwise, hold the cable with the plugs side by side and the cable hanging down from them. Have the latches facing away from you. The pins are numbered 1 to 8 from left to right. Look at the colours of the wires. If the pins are connected 1-1, 2-2, 3-3 ... etc, you have a straight through cable.
