how are you connecting? usb modem, ethernet cable or wifi?

are you sure the modem is connected to the internet? if you're using ethernet or wifi (ie, a normal network connection) you could refresh it by going to the terminal and doing
sudo dhclient. this'll refresh things, although if there's an actual problem it wont solve much.

we really need more info about how you're connecting. you could also do with finding out what your modem IP is so you could ping it and see if the problem lies with the modem or your computer.
