use another computer to download SP2 onto CD or a USB drive, then copy onto your XP SP1, it will provide more dirvers. Be sure and remove the modem before you start all of this. And also look at Computer, Drivers and uninstall any drivers for your modem model. Install SP2 and do windows update. I would also recommend after this to get SP3.
Last step if Windows doesn't have the driver is to get the driver from the manufactures website. Some modems have specific PC software beyond the driver to use it.
the problem you are facing is due to the double nat issue(the embarq modem provides the ip address in the range of belkin router, that is 192.168.2.1)...hardwire the pc to the lan port of router.
login to the router setup page(type 192.168.2.1 in IE)
in router setup page, click on lan settings and change your lan ip to 192.168.5.1....the problem ll get resolved...if still the status is not connected, switch off the router and modem and switch on it after a minute....it ll get fixed

Hi there! This are some steps on how to
setup your modem/router New DSL Modem Available
Embarq is now shipping an updated version of the DSL
Modem called the "660". It is smaller than the older model
(645) and is much easier to setup. A
few years ago, Sprint/Embarq changed the way their servers communicate
with the DSL modems. The new method is called DHCP, which is how the 660
modem works. The older 645 Modem used "PPPoE". So it's
best to have the new 660 DSL modem. The
older 645 modem also had the same default IP address as the Linksys Router
(192.168.1.1) - so you had to change one of the addresses to make them work
new 660 DSL modem uses 192.168.2.1 as the default IP address. This does
not conflict with the default IP address of the Linksys Router (192.168.1.1).Note that if you had changed the Linksys Router
IP address to 192.168.2.1, then you will first need to reset it back to the
default address 192.168.1.1. If
you call Embarq and request the new 660 DSL modem they will sent it to you at
no cost. When you install the 660 DSL modem, you need to be sure that you
power down the old 645 modem amd leave it off at least 1 hour before you plug
in the 660 DSL modem. The Embarq server needs to "forget" the
old 645 modem. After an hour, all you should have to do is plug in
the new 660 modem and everything should start up properly. Call
Embarq Tech Support 1-877-646-3282 if you have problems setting up the
modem. If the Internet Lights does not come on after a few moments - then
call Embarq Tech Support.
Make sure your physical connection is correct. From the modem, the ethernet cable should plugged in to the Internet/WAN port of the router. And your computer to port 1. Access the setup page of the router again and Enable the MAC Address Clone setting. Clone the MAC Address of your PC there then power cycle the router and modem. You should be all set.
has it worked before? if so, try to power cycle the devices by turning off everything. then turn on your modem first, wait for the lights to turn on on the modem before powering on the router. check if you're online
but if the router is for initial setup, you can try to run the cd first and follow the instructions. you need to make sure also that you can access the internet directly from your modem
hope this'll help you but if you still experience the same problem, just provide your ISP, the model of your modem and how are you connecting the devices
