Are you using a router? The address you mention, 192.168.1.1, is used as a default address for a router and for the web interface that controls the configuration of the router.
I'm not a connection expert, so this is the only thing I can tell you.
Someone else will have to help you with your connection issue.

Queen-Evie's point is very solid. I would check to make sure that you do not have a hard-coded IP address.

If you have Windows XP, then click on "Start", "Control Panel", "Network Connections", and right-click on your "Local Area Network" (assuming you are not wireless). Choose "Properties" and click on the line that says "Internet Protocol TCP/IP" before clicking on the "Properties" button. Make sure you are set to "Automatically obtain an IP address".

Hello wannabeadmin141,
It sounds like the modem/router is not handling DHCP requests properly. You may want to first try setting a static IP address rather than requesting an address from your router/modem. I'm not on windows at the moment but from memory (and Phantek's post) you would follow his advice but set the networking options to static and enter something similar to this:

Configuration: Static IP address
IP Address: 192.168.1.10
Netmask: 192.168.1.255
Subnetmask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway Address: 192.168.1.1

If you can get this to work, there is something janky going on with the router's DHCP server and it will have to be reconfigured. If you could post your router/modem model number we will probably be able to help you further. We will also be able to determine what subnet you are supposed to be on.
