The article offers information on how to troubleshoot some of the most common problems with network connection. According to the author, link light next to the Ethernet connector should be illuminated and the connection can be verified if it exist by typing ipconfig command on Windows machines, or ifconfig on Mac and UNIX systems. It also states that if the Web site does not show on the Internet, the Domain Name System (DNS) should be checked because it translates the domain name.
