ethernet help

having some trouble with my new ethernet shield

i just bought it from radioshack and plugged it in. i uploaded the webserver sketch, disconnected my wifi, plugged in my cat5e cable, and it wouldnt connect to my computer.

“i just bought it from radioshack and plugged it in.” Plugged what into what using what?

“i uploaded the webserver sketch,” ok.

“disconnected my wifi, plugged in my cat5e cable”. What are you talking about? Doesn’t make much scense without more detail on what you did.

Also you need to show the code you used as the example code often needs to be modified for your router and such.
