At my home, I can turn on my laptop, plug in my LAN cable straight from my cable modem and the internet just works. If I take my laptop to my girlfriends and plug in her LAN cable direct from her cable modem, it won't work. We're both with the same ISP too. I tried using the 'repair' thing on the network connection and no dice. Any ideas? My laptop is XP home
