Internet connection not working on laptop

hi, i've plugged my ethernet cable into my laptop but the laptop cannot see an internet connection. it tries to aquire a network address but fails. repair doesnt work and new connection wizard doesnt help.
if i plug the same cable into my pc i can connect to the internet without installing any additional software. i have cable internet. before i got the laptop it was configured to use a wireless connection- would any settings have affected the ability to connect via wired?
other end of ethernet cable is plugged directly to modem.
thanks, kristian
