Internet Working But DSL Modem Internet Light Red

I don't understand what happened. I noticed the other day I had a new box in my toolbar for something called Windows Firewall 7 which I did not download and it was causing me to lose my internet connection so went to programs and uninstalled it. I also deleted it from the tool bar then did a restart. After I did the restart I noticed that I was able to get onto the internet even though the light on my dsl modem is red and in the past when that light was red I wasn't able to get onto the internet. Can anyone explain what that means and if I need to do something? I'm worried that at any moment might internet will go out and I use my computer for work.
Here are the specs on my computer: Window Vista Home Premium, Service Pack 1 (underneath where it says that it says Upgrade Windows Vista, Do I need to do that? Computer is HP Pavilion a6532f AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core Processor, 5200 + 2.70GHz, Memory (RAM) 3.00GB & 32-bit.
Let me know if there is anything else you need from me. I look forward to hearing from you and getting your assistance.
