Up until last Thursday, my D-Link (don't know model) cable modem at home was working just fine. No issues besides needing a power cycle every once in awhile. Since Thursday, can no longer get online.
Borrowed a cable modem (same ISP) and can get online from home. Took MY cable modem to a friend's place approximately 10 blocks from my house. My cable modem works there, but not at my house.
Spent some time on Saturday debugging. Took the coax splitter out of the equation and am now connecting the modem directly to the primary coax cable. Also, took the router out of the equation and am directly connecting to the modem from my computer.
When Windows first starts up as I watch the network connection, it first says 'Invalid IP address' (Network Connections -> Status -> Support tab), then after a bit I get an "Automatic Private Address' starting with 169.XXX.XXX.XXX.
Got a tech coming by this afternoon, but curious if anyone has an idea what would cause my modem not to work in one location but work in another?
