Try removing power from your cable modem for 15 - 20 seconds, I mean
physically pull the power cord out, not just the power button. The cable
modems store your computer MAC address and need to have the power removed
for them to reset.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Trouble with Monowall
Hello - I have monowall setup on a machine, and everything on the lan side
works fine. I can login, administer various functions, the dhcp server works
correctly, etc. However, on the wan side (cable modem, courtesty of Cox) I
am unable to access the internet, or to even ping any remote addresses. Now
monowall is unable even to pull an ip for the wan side. I tried inputting my
isp's dns server manually, and using my isp's hostname (cox.net), but to no
avail. Im sure Im missing some simple configuration here - but in the
meantime I have a useless dhcp server doing nothing. Please Help.
