Can you please re-phrase the question, I don't understand the problem.

You installed Windows 2000 on the system, and now your sound and cable internet connection aren't working?

If this is so, you need to get the Windows 2000 drivers for the sound(Intel 810s tend to use crystal audio), and the drivers for your modem, but I think you mean NIC. You can't connection a modem into a Cable Network connection.

If this is wrong, please rephrase the question, and I'll try to be of more assistance.

You connect to the internet but when the other devices are used the connection is lost. So I don't understand why first responder wonders if this is a wiring problem.

There's probably just a conflict from the way win2000 assigned system resources. The modem, sound and nic are probably sharing on irq 3 or 4. Check device manager for resource conflicts.

If you don't know them, write down all your network properties settings. Include, DNS (host), gateway, TCP/IP, and subnet. Uninstall and move the network card to a different PCI slot. If the sound card is PCI you can try the same with it.

If the D-Link modem is connected to a com port as opposed to USB, you could change the irq settings for the port in the system' BIOS. So if the com port is on IRQ3 set it to use IRQ4. If the motherboard has more than one com port disable the port not being used. This may free up resources to be used by the nic. The settings for the com ports are usually in the intergrated peripherals section of the BIOS.

Default settings for the com ports,

com 1= irq4, 3f8
com 2= irq3, 2f8
com 3= irq4, 3e8
com 4= irq3, 2e8
