lost broadband connection

am unable to connect to tiscali broadband at all. was working absolutely fine til last night. i get a 797 error every time - unable to find modem. nothing is new with my setup & didnt download anything i'm aware of.

xbox live still connects through the same modem/router it just seems like the pc & router arent talking.

any thoughts? may uninstall the router & try afresh.

thanks in advance, BHD
