How come my cable modem is not giving me a valid IP address? 

by on January 22, 2013

Q: Recently purchased a new cpu tower. I plugged in the ethernet cable. Got nothing. Called my cable provider and they checked my modem and told me it may be a bad ethernet cable. I purchased another cable and still nothing. After doing some checking, I noticed that I have no IP address showing. Also says that no driver was installed for the coprocessor. I checked to see if the ethernet card is installed. It is and is working properly. Can the fact that I have no IP address be my problem or could it be another issue?
