Have you setup the connection?

If your on broadband have you put in the software from the disc?

Have you tried using the connection wizard to get online?

Are the cables in the correct sockets?

If you are using Windows Millennium Edition or earlier, or Windows 2000 or earlier, the Internet Connection Wizard provides an easy way to get connected to the Internet.

If you are new to the Internet, the Internet Connection Wizard creates an Internet connection for you, and then displays a list of Internet service providers (ISPs) and information about their services. You can sign up for a new account by clicking an ISP in the list.

If you already have an account with an ISP and want to create an Internet connection to your account, the Internet Connection Wizard collects all the necessary information from you and then creates the connection.

If you are not already running the wizard, you can start it as follows:

Open Internet Options in Control Panel.
On the Connections tab, click Setup.
Follow the instructions on your screen.

Others may be able to help you further.

Good luck!

Have you installed the driver software for your realtek airbus link adapter?

Go into the Device Manager and check that the drivers are installed.

Sometimes the light comes on the network adaptor but it isn't really working.

If you have a firewall turn it off. You may have to play with its settings later, but sometimes its as simple as that.
