Chapter 6: Troubleshooting
If the suggested solutions in this section do not resolve your issue, contact your system administrator
or Internet service provider.
Can I use the same cable line for TV and cable modem?
A. Yes, the TV and cable modem uses the cable line. You need a splitter to use them at the same time. Ask Cable
Company to install the splitter for you to avoid signal degradation.
My cable modem cannot get a solid green light on the Status LED when I connect the
cable back.
A. The cable modem lost the signal during the disconnection period and it will keeps scanning
other available signal. When you connect the cable back, it might take a while to find the
correct channel. You can power cycle the modem to speedup the process since modem will
remember the channel last time and it will start from that channel at startup.
How do I see my IP address?
A. If you are using Windows 95/98/Me, the winipcfg command will show you to IP address of the PC connected to
the cable modem. Notice that even though you seem get the same address all the time, it may still be a dynamic
address.
