Re: [Cable HSI] CMTS channel moving and DOCSIS 1.1 and 2 modems Sometimes when you reset the modem, either by power cycling it or a reset button on some, you need to go into the router and under the status or WAN settings depending on your model click release then renew so the router gets the ip from the modem. What i normally do to avoid going into the router config when i have to power cycle is unplug the router, then unplug the modem, plug the modem in and let it get online and running, then plug the router in. It will renew during its boot.
That power-up sequence is what I did. The first day, when I provisioned the modem, I did indeed have problems with the router not wanting to renew until I recycled power a few times. But on the second day, I just powered both down, let them sit for a minute, powered up the modem completely, then powered up the router, and it worked like a charm. It has been stable since.
