This is quite a common issue that arises in most of our cable ISP forums. When placing a new PC onto a new cable modem, you need to make sure you've rebooted the modem for at least 30-seconds
. The cable modem remembers the last MAC Address connected to it's WAN port. Rebooting it in the 30-second period should clear out the data stored within the modem, and allow other devices to connect.
