Default Can't detect LAN connection

Hi all,

I've got a new machine with a fresh install of XP on it. Unfortunately, I can't connect to the internet.
In DOS after typing ipconfig I get the following: Windows IP configuration nothing else.
I am trying to access a LAN network. As far as I know XP detects LAN connections automatically. Is that corrent? Do I have to change anything, first?

Also, at my network connections there is only one icon under the name: 1394 Connection/fire-walled. 1394 Net Adapter. This connection picks up IP and DNS automatically, however is not actually connected. No packets are transmitted or received.
I have checked the cable as well.

Please help me!!!!

Thank you!!!!

P.S: Do you think it might be the Ethernet card?

Run this command at a [command] prompt:

ipconfig /all

If you can post the results or a screenshot it will help members here troubleshoot your network problem.

Whenever you are troubleshooting network connections in windows XP or Vista always disable and then enable the network adapter. This often fixes networking issues in windows.
