    If your laptop works fine (via a wireless router connection), then I can only assume that your ISP service should be fine (if they are both are going through the same router). Does the ethernet connection display a yellow exclamation mark in device manager now? If so, could you try reinstalling the driver again? If not, did you possibly download an updated driver from Windows Update? If so, you could try try rolling back to a previous driver and see if that helps.

    Does the taskbar icon have a yellow mark?
    Whatever, click it and see if it can see any connections. If it can, and you recognise yours, click the option to connect automatically.
