Re: will not detect ethernet cord
Replace the cord or you may have a faulty nic card. this seems to happen to me quite a bit since I am in the IT industry. If your nic is "onboard" the mainboard, they are prone to fail or stall out without warning or reason.
Here is a good test. Unplug the computer (yes phsically unplug it, then press and hold power button for 10 seconds. This discharges all the capacitors on the mainboard, which seems to fix alot of problems I come across with hardware, especially nic cards or onboard nics.
Now turn it back on. You could be jacked in to a faulty port on whatever the other end is plugging into as well. It's hard to tell with the limited info you posted.

if all of the other lights on the modem are lit, except pc activity, that means the modem isnt communicating with the computer. 3 things can cause this - modem could be bad, ethernet cord could be bad, or the NIC card(the card in the cpu that houses the ethernet port) is bad. Most of the time its the ethernet cord or the NIC card in my experience. Dont fret, both of those are relatively cheap fixes.
USB to PC is fine, make sure you have the original installation disk for it. Then you can connect the Xbox via network cable. There shouldn't be any problem as your modem can take 2 connections by the sound of it.
The easiest solution would be to use an ethernet connection. A second problem is probably on most cable modems you can either use a USB connection OR an ethernet connection you cannoot use both at the same time.
the prob may b with the ethernet adapter on the computer or the ethernet port on the modem or the ethernet cable.....
to check ethernetadaptor ping 127.0.0.1
to check the ethernet port on the modem...if u plugin the cable u should have a light lid up on the modem ..
to check the ethernet cable
try with an alt cable which is proved to be working
I managed to fix the problem manually using a computer kit I had. The problem was the Ethernet port on the modem was messed up you should check if the small wires are on the back are all facing towards the top if not you should try to fix its actually pretty easy no need to pay for a repair :D
Your modem should have a RJ11 (phone) jack and a RJ45 (ethernet) jack. Phone line-in to modem RJ11. Ethernet cable from RJ45 to modem to router; maybe labeled WAN or modem port . Ethernet from any of the switch ports (or the only one avail, depending on your model) to you pc if it has a ethernet card in it. After that it's all up to the configuration.
