[Cable HSI] How do I get internet?

The routing capabilities of our Cisco DOCSIS 3.0 Modem/Router were disabled on approximately the 2nd or 3rd. This makes it impossible to use more than one device to get online.

I have my own D-Link DIR-655 router plugged into the modem. The router is plugged into the modem on the first port of the modem and WAN port of the router. The router gets an IP address from 173.16.152.1, but the router can not ping 4.4.4.4.

173.16.152.1 is part of the IP range owned by Mediacom in Arizona.

Why can I not access the internet or even Mediacom.com when I have been assigned an IP address on the router?

Did you reboot / power-cycle the modem? Anytime there is a device change behind the modem it needs to be power-cycled.

Why not use

8.8.8.8
8.8.8.4
?

Also why would you ping it? I can't ping any of these but my connection is flawless.

Google's public DNS's are 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

I can ping and nslookup both and they work great. 4.4.4.4 doesn't ping or nslookup.

Added: You may have been looking for 4.2.2.1 through 4.2.2.6, the most common one being 4.2.2.2.
