    I've configured XP Professional on a workstation. Is works perfect, but I will change this workstation into a stand-alone computer with connection to internet. I have a cable-modem for my internet-connection.
    I have tried to disable the current workstation-connection, but I cannot solve the problem.
    Can somebody tell me how I must configure my workstation so that I can use that computer as stand-alone?

    Is this a Ethernet modem or a USB modem?

    If ethernet, just plug the ethernet cable into the back of the cable modem, and set your NIC's IP & DNS to obtain automatically (Most cable providers more than likely use DCHP to assign IPs)

    If USB, USB broadband modems are terrible, return it and buy a ethernet one.
