    Hello Avi, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Are you using an Ethernet connection from the modem, and not a USB connection that could require drivers to be installed?

    Support for your board from Intel ended 2010 so I had to look up the specs in order to find out which Realtek Lan driver you are using for your Intel DG41RQ mother board. >LAN Support 10/100/1000 Mbits/sec LAN subsystem using Realtek RTL8111D Gigabit Ethernet Controller

    Specifications for Intel DG41RQ via .pdf >Intel® Desktop Board DG41RQ — Technical product specification

    So now we need the updated Windows 8.1 driver version for this Realtek Lan driver.
    So on this page> Realtek

    You just go to Windows drivers at the top then down to driver version 8.020 which is the 4th one down dated 11-26-13, this is the driver you need to fix your problems.
