Standard network equipment communicates on the following wires 1,2,3,6. This is required for 10Mb/s or 100Mb/s communication on standard equipment...a cross would be 1-3 2-6 (or simply reversing the pairs on one end). 4,5,7,8 are either for power over ethernet or gig. I don't know how you can qualify the cable as good being that the pairs required for standard network communications are not lighting up. Get those wires to light up and you will have your internet connection, provided that the port you are connecting to is part of a vlan that routes out to the internet.
