You can't just change the connector type on your modem,
that wouldn't work You need an ethernet adapter for the

The good news is that ethernet adapters and cheap and
readibly available online. You have to figure out what type of
slot your motherboard has (probably PCI, but maybe
something older). Then you need to buy an ethernet adapter
that fits the motherboard. You might consider taking it to a
local computer shop (not Best Buy) who can open it up,
determine and order the right card, and install it for you.

The cards come as cheap as around $10 to $30.
