    Are you connecting thru a home network router or directly to the cable box via cat5? either way try to see if dhcp works since most cable co's use that to give out ip addresses. It may also be that you cable connection is mac address specific and may need to use a router.

    ok here is what I would in the MD control center go to network select remove connectio and follow steps to remove net workcard. Then select New connection and follow the prompts to reinstall your network connection and make sure you specify use dhcp. that should get you going make sure you are plugged into the modem before making new connection.
