    When you switch connections to the modem, you have to power it off and power it back on.

    Yes. Unplug it. Connect it to a different computer. Plug it back in.

    What's the brand and model of the modem?

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
    (For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

    Type the following command:

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    [Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.
