i plugged in my ethernet cord (modem to laptop) and the internet stopped working. i then unplugged the cord and the internet starts working. why is this happening?

Other answer:

Rosalie Marie:
The reason is probably a faulty setup of your ethernet connection. When you plugin the cord, the computer tries to use the wired connection (because it's faster). It doesn't fall back on the wireless connection if the setup is bad though.
When you unplug it again, the computer goes back to using the properly configured WiFi connection.

Check the wired connection's settings (you didn't mention your operating system and version so I can't give detailed instructions).

You must have a VERY bad setting on the laptop, or it is so infected with malware it is blocking all other users.
