First try Start/Settings/Network Connections and see if anything is listed. There is also a Network Troubleshooter link on the left side of that box that may help. Might also check Network Adapters in Device Manager (Control Panel/System/Device Manager) to see if any problems are indicated.

Your post is a little like saying that your car won't start. However, you aren't supplying any details.

Did this just start happening? Did everything work fine before? What operating system? How do you go on-line? Do you have a router or do you connect directly to the modem or whatever they have supplied? Can you talk to your notebook? What steps have you taken to address the problem?

Turn off (unplug the power) the modem, and router if you have one.. Wait a couple minutes and turn them back on..
