Look in your Firewall Activites, Firewall - Network and Connections and Intrusion Prevention logs. I don't think this is a rule but a IPS flagged event but the logs will show.
Also, are you wired to your DSL modem directly or through anything else (some people put a wireless router inbetween the computer and the DSL modem)? Have you had any other problems with your system?

It looks like NIS has been blocking my modem ever since I first installed it (NIS). I didn't know it was doing this until I enabled it to notify of intrustion attempts and such.
My DSL modem goes straight to the ethernet port at the back of my computer. There aren't any other problems with my system that I'm aware of.

One solution is to reset your firewall rules to the default set:
Goto (this in NIS2009) Setting> Internet Settings> Smart Firewall> Advanced Settings> Firewall Reset> Reset> Yes.

Another question (sorry didn't ask earlier) is what did you have before NIS was installed?
You also said earlier it seems like NIS was blocking "ever since I installed it"; is 'it' the software (NIS) or your modem?
