I have internet 'in the building' and I'm supposed to be able to plug in a green ethernet cable to my network card and have a T-1 Connection.

I was wondering if anyone could give me some easy help on getting it to work. Im somewhat familiar with going into the properties etc, but all the configuration settings are currently set to aquire IP automatically etc, and its not doing that.

As of now, I plug in the cable, enable the connection, and taskbar icon says 'connected 400Mbs/second'. However, obviously, I cannot get a webpage etc, and it says 'TC/ICP not enabled' when I try to repair the connection (i.e. cannot get an IP address). I've been using my wireless connection but once I beleive I got the 1394 connection to work, although I don't know how I did it.

If anyone can offer some easy help, would be most appreciated.
