Hello Chris and welcome to Geeks to Go! :)

My name is Olrik and I'll try to help you with this networking issue. I am not familiar with Yahoo High Speed Internet though so bear with me :)

I do indeed think this might have something to do with your drivers.
Lets see if you have any errors in the device manager.
  • Go to Start -> Run.
  • In the Box, type in "devmgmt.msc".
  • Now look in that window, can you find any "?".
  • Please tell me which devices are marked with a yellow "?".
