    Okay... I have been trying to get my laptop to connect to the internet via the network cable or usb cable connected directly to the RR box. It wont fucking connect. I have all of the correct drivers installed also. I did a brand new fresh install of Win X Pro and formatted the drive clean.

    What the hell am I missing here? I am not an idiot when it comes to this but why the hell will it not connect? It says it is connected but I am unable to get on the internet. Do I have some IP settings that I need to put in or something? Everything on my desktop computer is the same as the laptop as far as I can tell configuration wise. I just dont get it. I need to do the windows updates on that laptop and get it to connect so I can do other things to it.

    I shut down my RoadRunner Cable box and then restarted it while connected to the laptop, and restarted with them together and nothing.

    I can not figure this out. The lights are on and it says it is connected and sending info.:ugh:

    did you run ipconfig to see if you were picking up an ip?

    make sure dhcp is enabled (looks like it is anyways), run ipconfig/ renew

    are you using a router? if so unplug the power to the router and modem, plug the modem back in after 15 secs, wait for it to initialize (power, cable/connected light solid), plug the router back in, wait for it to initialize, ipconfig /renew. also make sure the proper drivers are installed. usb modems also need drivers/software if you are using the usb interface. I haven't slept all night, and it's 9am, so i didn't read all your post, hope this helps.
