    Open "Safari" (should be in the dock) and type in your internet address in the address bar. Then press return.

    Let us know if that works, if not you may need configuring.

    What is it plugged into? Router? DSL/Cable Modem?

    Open System Preferences -> Network -> Click on the Ethernet line in the box -> Click on "Assist Me" at the bottom -> Diagnostics

    When the program runs, come back and tell which bubbles are green and which red.
