I have been trying to troubleshoot this and haven't been able to find much. I'm new to arduino and I'm doing this for a school project, but when we got a new ethernet shield, the laptop I use comes up with an unidentified network for the arduino and the browser cant establish a connection. I've tried pinging the board and it works, I've tried flushing the stack (with no success), and I have tried using a few different ethernet cables. My last attempt was trying to get a router setup, unfortunately when the setup gets to the router identification stage it hangs and I have to close. This feels like an issue with the laptop, but I was wondering if there was anything else I could try before trying to switch laptops.

Laptops rarely come up with anything on their own. They generally require that you do something. So, what did you do?

What is the Arduino with ethernet shield connected to? You imply that you do not have a router, but you do not say how the Arduino is connected to a network.

What stack, on what? How?

The network manager had an unidentified network when i plugged the arduino in. However, this is a school laptop and I am not sure what was done with it before this year. Can't provide a solid answer on that front sorry.

I have tried connecting the arduino directly into the laptops ethernet port, and after reading a few posts on this forum I tried using a router which was unable to be setup. My DLink dir-655 installation disc got to the part where you turn it on after plugging the etherenet cable into the port. The router setup didnt stop responding, but was hanging while trying to find the router

The flushing was another suggestion on a windows forum for unidentified networks. The response was to flush the TCP/IP stack and I followed the steps to do that, this came up with no change in behavior.

A little more that I forgot was that I was only assigning the MAC address to the board, because I wasn't sure what our school network settings were and I don't need this to access websites, just recieve requests across the ethernet cable.

The network was "unidentified" because your Arduino doesn't act as a DHCP server; you would need to setup both devices with static IP addresses.
