Ethernet not working, I absolutely need it

Hey so I moved into university recently and I don't have a working router yet. I've been using ethernet connection the whole time, but a few days ago the ethernet connect just stopped working, it would say "Unidentified connection - Limited", when I tried clicking on troubleshooting it would say that Ethernet does not have a valid ip address.

Are there any fixes? I'm running a clevo w230st on windows 8.

following may be the reasons... you need to check them all first
A wireless network adapter switch that's not enabled

WEP, WPA, or WPA2 security key or passphrase issues

Cables that aren't connected properly

Corrupted or incompatible drivers

Missing updates

Network connection settings

Hardware or software problems
