Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 6400 Notebook ?

My laptop crashed, so I installed Windows Vista, where I had previously been running XP. My problem is: the internet won't work hard wired. I can pick up a wireless signal, but prefer the hard wire... did I do something wrong when reinstalling??
