Question about Computers & Internet
Router will not receive an ip address. have to plug network cable directly into cable modem.
You need to hard reset the router first by pressing the reset button at the back of it for 30 sec. Then do a power cycle. Unplug the power to the router first then the modem. Make sure the modem is plugged in to the Internet/WAN port and your PC to port 1 of the router. After 1 min power on the modem first then wait for the lights to go solid, then power on the router. If you still you don't have internet, you need to perform MAC Address Cloning. Open the router's Setup Page and look for MAC Address Clone feature, enable it and save. Perform a power cycle again. That should do it.

Connect your computer directly to your cable or DSL modem. If you see a log-in screen for your Internet Service Provider, make a note of the user name and password.
