Internet issues with Cable Modem

Hello, I just signed up for the cox internet service yesterday and have been unable to get an internet connection. I spoke with Cox and they have said that the modem is online, but something on my computers end is not allowing me to get online. Does anyone know of any ideas to fix this asap?

    I have attempted that. I used to have DSL. When I first hooked up I attempted to go through our wireless router from Linksys, but it would not let me. So, instead have been attempting to go straight through the modem. If you have any other ideas I appreciate your help. I might have to figure something else out in the mean time.

Yes..it's most likely in your network connections settings. open up control panel, go to network settings, and add a new internet connection. follow instructions, and see if that helps

I have configured my d link router and able to connect it with my win xp laptop and after i connect internet cable to the wireless router i am unable to access the internet through my win xp and win 7...


If initially the Win XP laptop was connected to internet at the cable/dsl modem, its MAC address would have been registered on service setup. If the router is now in place between the Win XP laptop and the cable/dsl modem, you would need to go on the Win XP laptop and log into the router as admin to clone the Win XP laptop's MAC address to the dlink router's WAN interface (internet facing side) so that the cable/dsl modem will see the previously registered MAC address and will enable the internet access.

How can I add internet in my laptop ?


Hello,

After subscribing to an Internet Service Provider, you can connect via modem with the Ethernet cable, USB cable or wireless if the modem support this. Check with you ISP to find out which is recommended for your modem.

Good Luck
