if your cable modem connects by ethernet you will have to make sure that the ethernet driver has been installed. Have you run the mobo cd to put the drivers on? Then with a cable modem if you do big changes the modem has to be switched off and then allowed to reset. I spent many an hour trying to connect with one of these before finding out all needed was the switchoff.
