  1. I strongly suggest you install a nic card and use it instead of the USB port .. also you might find help in the forums at www.dslreports.com

  2. It's most likely a problem with either the modem or ISP.
    Call them.

    (BTW, not all modems can use RJ45, lots are just USB. Especially satellite modems)

  3. Is your modem just a straight USB to USB connection, or are you using a Ethernet card with USB on one end and RJ-45 on the ohter? If so you might need to update your drivers for the card. Second I would try re-booting your modem. Unplug it for about 30-60 seconds then plug it back in. It works on RCA modems might on yours.
    Good luck
