network on adsl modem off

If I am using my broadband adsl usb modem and I switch on my 2nd. pc [ethernet crossover cable] the adsl modem is switched off. This has only happened after a format and reinstall of xp pro and sp2 as before so it must be a setting somewhere but I cannot find it. Any suggestions welcomed.

Have you set your first pc to allow Internet Connection Sharing? And used the New Network Wizard to configure both PC's?

yes everything done as previous when it worked ok. I believe it must be something to do with the bridge networking system but I have not found it yet.

Sorted - I uninstalled all network devices rebooted and reloaded the drivers from the motherboard cd.
