You will ahve to troubleshoot this, let's first take a ;ook at the nic card ping it with the loopback address 127.0.0.1 if you get a succesful reply your nic is good if not try another one, second sweitch ports on your router with one of the other computers if you get a connection then your cat 5 is good but the port the port on your router isn't try a hub or switch and put two of the computers on that .
