i had cable at one point, and what worked for me is in the setting where you have a mac address,
make that one read the mac address of the actual nic card that is connecting to the modem, in other
owrds, what ever is there make it say the REAL mac address......i have time warner, and comcast also
and worked like a charm for me
so to Recap,
look at console for mono, hit 1
then find the mac address of the wan connection write it down, then go to the gui and input that
same mac addresss into the seeting for mac address, and should work fine

No need for that, just reset your modem as David says. Then try to 
reconnect with mono. Should work.
