    Right Click on My Computer and choose manage
    Goto Device Manager and expand Network Adapters

    Is there anything listed there?

    Maybe you need to install some drivers for your modem?

    What do you use to connect to the internet? Dial up or broadband - if broadband do you connect to a router or modem?
    In device manager are there any items marked with question marks? If so what are they?
