scan the system with antivirus , spybot & adaware .
there can be a trojan / spyware affecting your system ...

and in your add/remove programs (classic view) check if
you have this security update : Windows XP (KB823980)
if you donot have this , you may have to install it ( Link )

Thats ur windows problem not datone or modem.Check ur PC for virus,if windows doesn't restart try to start Gneric Host Process(svchost.exe) manually from services or using run command.

get autopatcher and try installing that for all the latest fixes... if nothing else works. try to get the installer cd for xp from some other source. and try to get one with sp2 built in.

Was that a Windows Authentication error or are you just unable to install the update?

Run C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe,Check in ur Task Manager is SVCHOST/SYSTEM running.Now Run services.msc and Check for Services with Statup type Automatic and Status blank.Manually start all these services and then try to connect.
