Take the laptop down there, plug it in via an ethernet cable, and see if you get lights. . .
Thanks for the help. Yes, i plugged the laptop into the ethernet ports and the green lights worked. I still can't connect to xbox live... it says wireless network not connected. I get online via wireless for my laptop and was getting online for xbox wireless but no longer...
