Next to where the cable from the router plugs in there should be two  
small LEDs (lights). When you plug the cable in, does one of the  
lights turn on in orange? This would signify that a cable is properly  
connected. If you open up a terminal (Accessories > Terminal) and type  
'ping' what happens? Does the other light next to the  
cable turn on in green?

Hope I was of some help
