[dba-SQLServer] Can't Register Server

Yes, I did originally, not voluntarily, but because it loaded
automatically.  After I removed it, SQL Server would never reinstall
properly.  EM ran, but even though I had databases, I couldn't connect
to them.  My ISP implicated the modem, which gave me other fits.  After
I got fed up and got the router, I never tried to reinstall ... Until
last night.

   Excuse me but how exactly does DSL break SQL Server???
I have the developer version on my Windows 2000 PRO SP4 at home and it 
runs fine and even when I got a router all I did was litterally power 
down the pc, install the router and then power it back up... I 
litterally had not configuration issues.

Did you load any software because of your DSL?
