You can report your other post to a moderator, explain the error,
and ask him to remove it.

How does your computer connect to the internet?
Dial-up modem; ADSL modem; cable modem; LAN; router?

Well I can't help you without more information. HCF modems mean winmodem which are a bugger. Search this site, the wiki.linuxquestions.org site and google for help to get it going. You can use the lspci program to scan pci devices in your system to figure out what chips your modem uses.
