<<First of all could you explain to me what a Modem hiccup is and how can you determine if a Modem has one.>>
A modem, like anything else manmade and electric, can experience momentary problems. Loss of signal or inaccurate signal processing can lead to a situation where broadband users experience inability to connect to the Internet. The typical "cure" for this is to reboot the modem.
<<Why do I even have two NIC'S ?>>
Every system typically comes with a NIC...for home network purposes or Internet connectivity. My experience is that DSL providers install a second NIC because that still leaves the DSL customer with the option of a wired home network, no inconvenience caused by DSL.
<<How would I switch over to the other one ?>>
If you look at the rear of your system, you see connections of varying sizes, shapes, function. If there are two that can accept the line coming from the modem to the system...you have two NICs. If there is only one, you have 1 NIC. If two exist, they perform the same function for the computer, provide a communication pathway to something existing outside the system.
<<I have no knowledge of how to uninstall and reinstall my DSL Connection program.>>
Your Internet service provider (ISP) should have given you a CD which installs the software...updated versions of same are frequently available for download at the website of the provider. If not, then I could be wrong...but I suggest contacting your ISP or consulting the website of same for details.
<<How would I check my connection data ?>>
. If the connection works, the data is good. If the connection doesn't work, uninstalling and reinstalling anew may correct it.
<<I am a little familiar with Event Viewer but would not know what the Event ID Numbers mean or where to look them up at.>>
You don't have to know...just post that info here. Please read the link provided previously.
<<You probably realize who uses 660 Modems.>>
The 660s (regardless of manufacturer) are DSL modems, from what I see.
<<Then if my Computer connection goes down and I reestablish it then it should stay on.Unless there is an equipment problem because it is not a user problem>>

<<Their is a relatively simple way of seeing if it's my equipment,myself, or somebody else fault.I just need to take it to somebody who has a secure or stable Connection and hook my Computer up.>>
Hmmm...don't know if that's accurate. That might work with a cable connection, but you have DSL. DSL typically requires the specific software of the provider in order to work. I don't know since I've never tried that with anyone's DSL system and I have cable. DSL installs also typically have filters on the phones...my guess would be that these would be needed at a different location.
