How fully to adapt computer to broadband internet connection

I recently had some frustration, when the Radio Tuner on Windows Media Player series 9 refused to work because it could not connect through the telephone modem which I formerly used for my internet connection. I am now on a high-speed connection all the time, and the phone line is gone.

Just now, I tried to install a Radio program, Radio Tuna. I downloaded the installation program correctly through my highspeed connection. But, when I ran the installation program, it sought to connect through the phone modem to get additional files it announced it needed. I did not know how to get past this in the installation, so it failed.

How do I stop my computer from seeking the old internet connection through the phone modem?

Which OS?

If you open the network and sharing center(sic), that should show all of your connections.

You may be getting hassles if you still have your old modem fitted, especially if the hardware's still installed on the computer.

He wouldn't still have his modem fitted if he's gone over to broadband, surely.
