Open up a command prompt (Start > run > cmd)
Type the following bolded commands and post the results for each affected machine.

ipconfig /all

Verify that all network drivers are installed.
To open device manager: start > run > devmgmt.msc

If there are any !,?, or X
in the list then you need to reinstall the drivers or enable the device.

WINS Proxy Enabled...: No
Ethernet adapter Local Area Connection:

Hmmm. no IP and default gateway.

If the modem works with your laptop and can connect to the internet, definitely it is not your modem.

If you have ? on other devices under devmgmt.msc then it means it's driver problem, might wanna re-install your NIC driver.

Verify that your network card is installed. It should be under network adapters and should say Realtek Family Giabit

Windows XP
Open up a command prompt (Start > Run > CMD)
Type the bolded commands in the command prompt window:

Reset TCP/IP Stack: netsh int ip reset reset.log
Reset WINSOCK entries: netsh winsock reset catalog

When finished reboot

Under Device Manager, Network adapters, it shows Realtek RT8169/8110 Family Giabit Ethernet NIC

I did the:
Reset TCP/IP Stack: netsh int ip reset reset.log
Reset WINSOCK entries: netsh winsock reset catalog
and rebooted, but nothing has changed.

When I connect the modem to the desktop, it tries to connect, it comes back saying limited or no connectivity, with an !.

I booted in safe mode with networking and it doesn't connect. Under network connection the local area connection says, it is acquiring the network address.

I have the firewall disabled on the the computer and it is a fresh load. There are no other programs loaded on the computer, just the operating system and the drivers.

Go to Start/Run and type CMDand hit enter. In the command prompt type ipconfig /flushdns and hit Enter now at the command prompt type ipconfig /release then type ipconfig /renew. It should give you a new IP address, try to connect.
