Where is your modem plugged into?

The Ethernet Port?

Sometimes Windows will tell you that "a network" cable is unpluged, or sometimes it will tell you that a "LAN" cable in unplugged. In any case, it means the same thing.

I'm a bit confused that you say that you're hardwired (ie, connected via directly via cable) into your router, but you say it's downstairs. Have you run the network cable through the walls?

Turn any firewalls off.

Make sure you set up any networks, install network devides (your Ethernet Card/Port) and make sure your modem is recognized.
