Now about othere problem's Internet explorer is not working from time to time then different applications stop or start to work online. and the lan itself stops to work also.

    Your connection would be much easier if you bought a router. Connect the router by ethernet cable to the modem. Then connect each computer by straight through Cat 5 cable (not the crossover you are now using) to the router. With ADSL, you would need to set up the connection to your ISP by entering the address of the router (each manufacturer uses different default addresses - i.e. Linksys uses in the address bar of your browser. You will be taken to a configuration page for the router. Be sure to disable the connection settings from the computer now connected to the modem. You will note that only 1 ethernet card is now needed in the previously connected computer.
    While you're out buying that router (they're quite cheap these days), consider buying a wireless one - for future use.
    Good luck.
