How many lights does your modem have and how many do you see lighting? if you have only 2 lighting..you may want to contact your internet service provider and get them to reset your connection.
try using your ethernet cable... when you plug your cable to the back of your computer and to the modem... do you see lights blinking at both ends when both devices are on.. if not.. try replacing the cable for a known good cable. make sure all your cable as properly secured.

go to start>control pannel>network connections.. hight light local network connection (your network adapter) and right click and select properties... then in the general tab scroll down untill you see Internet protocol (TCP/IP) click on it and the click on the properties botton. in the general tab of properties.. make sure you have selected "Obtain an IP address Automatically" and down below "Obtain DNS server address automatically"
if everthing looks ok.. try to repair you connection by going to start>control pannel>network connections.. hight light local network connection (your network adapter) and right click and select enable (if disabled) or repair.
