    have you installed it already? most routers/modems will handle the configuration automaticaly, we need more information thought, what is your ISP?

    Setting up a cable connection...

    I have an internal network card that I use. My ISP is a firm called Multicable. I tried configuring one of the modems, filled in my IP address and everything.

    My question is, are you connecting your computer directly to the modem or is it running through a hub or router? If it's connected through a router you should have a network connection already.
