    Your best bet is to contact your internal corporate IT for proper support. Your company may have specific security policies and corresponding settings that needs to be followed.

    The forums here are generally geared towards basic SOHO networking and your company may not appreciate the utilization of this type of support for their business systems.

    Cat 5/6 cable generally won't fit into a modem Are you sure it isn't a second nic?

    More than likely, the modem in this case is probably a high speed cable or DSL modem (where both are really bridges as neither really "modulate" anything).
