How can I connect to the internet directly through the modem without any (wireless) router?

I plugged my computer to the modem without my router but my win7 machine can not identify the modem network.

Is there anything I missed??

What type of cable have you used? Modem to Router may be a crossover cable but you need Patch (Straight) cable to connect Modem to PC
