No internet connection?

Okay, so right after doing a fresh install of Windows XP and everything working fine... the internet won't work, there's no LAN connection showing up, I've never used Windows XP before, only Windows Vista and on Vista it usually sets up the connection for you...

Anyone know what I should do to get the internet to work?

Re: connection

What exactly do you mean with "LAN connection" and "Internet connection"?
How exactly do you mean "showing up"?
Broadband or dial-up?
Did you install all XP drivers from, say, the drivers and utility disk that came with this laptop?

Create a new network . . .

Start, All Programs, Accessories, Communications, Network Setup Wizard. I'm assuming you have an Ethernet device and the proper drivers. Again, assuming, you installed the LAN device, either on board the motherboard or a PCI device.
