Cable modems bond to what they are plugged into, so you have the modem plugged into a computer and it is working fine. Then you want to unplug the ethernet cable from the computer and plug it into another device such as a netgear router. Then you find no matter what you do it will not work.
Now normally to break this bond to the computer so that it will bond with the router you would simply unplug the electrical power from the cable modem, wait for it to sync back up with your ISP's CMTS, power up your router which you would have connected via the internet or wan port, and you would be up and running.
You may have even did this with your Arris TM602. Why isn't your router pulling an IP address? The reason is simple, pulling the power cord did not really remove power since the modem has battery back up.
In order to make it release its bond to your computer, so it can bond with the router you need to either push the reset button on the back of the modem while still powered up or remove its battery pack while unplugged from power.
So try again, this time push reset on the modem. This question was posted in January so I am sure buttercup is all fine by now but maybe this will help someone else.
