While setting up my PC at my parents house, I keep getting the error: “A Ethernet cable is not properly plugged in or might be broken”

I went to Best Buy and got a new cable but still getting the same notification when running network diagnostics.

Not sure what to do and really would love some help.
Thanks

What is the other end of the cable plugged into?

Computer is saying network cable is unplugged when I open network connections. When I troubleshoot through network adapter it says “plug an Ethernet cable into the network adapter Ethernet 2”

I know that the Ethernet I am using works, because it is brand new. It is plugged into the wall in a jack that was working with my PS5 earlier today. For some reason my desktop cannot recognize this cable. Please help!! I’ve already tried resetting my network through windows settings and command prompts.

it was on auto as default, in a video I watched it said to switch between 100 to 10. I switched it from 100 to 10 both half and full. It did not work with either.
