When I plug my cable modem directly into my laptop, neither reads as connected. It's not the cable; I've tried several.
The modem was replaced last week, and works via wireless router, so that's not it either. Device mgr says the network adapter's working properly, the drivers are up to date, no new hardware / software...

How do I find the glitch, and how do I fix it?
