Please read the simple rules
in the link in the red box on top of the page
And please also clarify as it is not at all clear what the problem is - does ethernet work or not or is the modem that is the problem

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

ethernet does not work .... not sure if it's the modem..... it did work before with windows "The Modem".not sure if the modem supports Linux or needs a driver. However, her wireless works fine so i'm guessing the modems fine. I am trying to reset the modem..... having a hard time resetting the modem back to the default.

Thanks again!

spider :D

Sorry to unclear to spend time searching for a solution here
For that I would need to know hardware, if the ethernet works, and if the modem works not just that you don't get a connection
