Ethernet connected to new PC but no Internet

Go to solution Solved by Glennieboyyy007,

download the internet driver for your motherboard onto a usb stick and stick that into your new pc. i had the same problem and that solved it for me

Hello for the final time hopefully. I just finished building my new PC today and connected the ethernet to the back but it says there is no internet connection. My modem is has a green light for the cable I connected and on the PC there is a blinking yellow light. I am not sure what is going on but I could really use someone's help. My PC doesn't have a disk drive so I cant install any software until I get online. Does anybody have any ideas? I also looked around but the solutions for the problem appear to be to install a software disk but like I said I don't have  a disk drive and my case doesn't have a place for one. I hope I'm not stuck with this. Thanks guys!

SO in other words, you've not installed the driver for the NIC...

Which is on a disc.

Head out to a retail store like best buy or some such, buy a cheap USB stick and ask the guys there to transfer the CD drivers over to the usb for you.

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

Ok. I have the USB disk but I'm going to try doing GlennieBoyyy007's idea. I need the experience. This is my first PC build and I want to learn as much as possible from everyone.

Of course, but that part wasn't mentioned in the original post, so I was working with the info given and coming up with a solution based on what they said.

I often make the incorrect assumption that everyone has multiple PCs like I do, and this sort of thing doesn't come up, but I've run across posts here where their only system is the one they just built.

 

But yes, you are totally correct, download from another system if they have access to one

I have a laptop I bought a long time ago before I deployed. I'll use that and hopefully it works.
