      Wired connection - silly question?

      My router has been working ok wirelessly with my laptop which has a built in wireless adaptor. To check the telephone line, I want to connect the laptop to the main telephone socket. I have connected the ethernet cable to the router and laptop but how do I get it to work? I have disabled the wireless adaptor but no connection via the cable. There must be something needing enabling - but what. Typing "ipconfig" into a command prompt gives the error message that ipconfig is not a command and cannot be acted upon.
      Could anyone please let me know what I am missing - its probably just something trivial.

      Go to tools, then internet options, then connections, check that never dial a connection is clicked, then go to LAN settings and check that automatically detect settings is ticked.
