Anak: No I dont have a spare cable but I will go get one and see if that is a problem..
However Im still able to connect to the Modem using the cable but only if Im in broadband mode.. is it still possible that the cable can be bad if im still getting a connection through broadband setup?
No. If you are getting a connection, then the cable should be good.
If you have a broadband connection, but no local area connection this brings me to another check you can preform.....The in-line filters Verizon gave to you to install between the phone jack, and the DSL router. Make sure there is one on every land-line connection, even if it isn't connected to a phone.
If there is no reason for you to have multiple networks, I would get rid of (Leave) the broadband homegroup.
See here on how to do that: Homegroup - Leave
Then run the troubleshooter located at the bottom of the Network and Sharing Center page.
When the next page opens, click on Internet Connections, and allow the Shooter to run its diagnostic.
You can also access this Shooter by clicking on the remaining Local area Connection located to the right of the "View your active networks section" See highlites in attachment.
When the next dialog box opens "Local area connection status", click on the "diagnose" button, and let it run.
Once you have done all this report back on what the troubleshooters found or if they were able to repair your connection.
