    Sorry for the double post... but i just tried a different cat5 cable. obtained ip address: 128.120.189.205. Default Gateway: 128.120.189.254... So exactly how am i supposed to ping it? do i type the Default Gateway address in the address bar of IE?

    Open up Command Prompt (start > run > CMD) and type "ping [ip address here]' without quotes.

    Well it seems llike packets were sent and recieved.

    Ping statistics for 128.120.189.205:
    Packets: SEnt = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 <0% loss>,
    Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0 ms, Average = 0ms

    what is this supposed to tell me? Is the internet connection ok? Something wrong with the ethernet port?

    Ping the Gateway's IP, not your own.

    it says the same thing when i ping the default gateway. Another thing, when i type ipconfig in the cmd prompt... there are two things that show up. "Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection" and "Ethernet adapter network bridge <network bridge> 2" Both have an ip address, subnet mask. but the network bridge doesnt have a dfault gateway. Is that something i should look into?

    Network bridge? You shouldn't need one... Go into your Network Connections area and delete / disable it.
