I recently bought a netgear router. The problem is, that it will not connect to my laptop. I believe that the main reason why is not connecting is because my ethernet cable is not working properly. For example, when I try to connect my modem to my laptop via ethernet, it will notice it but it will tell me that it is an unidentified network. For this reason I have to use my usb cable which is working fine. I think this is really weird because if the ethernet calbe wouldnt be working my laptop wouldnt even notice it. I tried downloading some ether drivers but I still cannot conect.... this is the version of my ethernet thing marvell yukon 88e8039 pci-e fast ethernet controller.

Please let me know what can I do.

First off, how about the EXACT make/model of the modem and the router. You do realize that when you change from the USB connection to the Ethernet connection on most modems that you MUST cycle power on the modem, right?
