Situation:  Employee can't "log in".  

That could mean a lot of things.  
First, you want to know if the employee's computer is connected to the network.
If that's all then you're done.

But, if by "log in" you mean logging into a network server or some such thing, then that comes next.

So, first,
Start / Run
cmd <enter>

In the command line window type:
ipconfig /all <enter>

You may have to scroll up but you should see the interface's
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Gateway Address
DNS Address

In fact, you could just paste the result here.

Then you might PING the gateway.
Do you get a response?
If so, the computer is connected.....

Then we'll see what's next.
