    Go to System Preferences -> Network

    Go to your Ethernet adapter

    Make sure it is configuring IPv4 using DHCP
    Renew your DHCP Lease
    Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

    One thing, The router you are using, are you sure you plugged the network cable into the right spot?

    Also, try unplugging the cable from the back of the PC and into your notebook and see if you get a connection. The way I always check for an internet connection with Broadband is to open up Networking as suggested and see if you have a DHCP ip address.

    Have you tried rebooting the laptop? Sometimes when I reboot my wireless network, I need to reboot my iBook too.
