I don't know who your cable provider is and Im not sure if you done this. But most cable providers bind your mac to their network. So make sure you restart your modem to make sure thats not your problem. If you modem has a gui you may sometimes need to login to it and do a soft reset or use the physical reset button to reset it. If you do a physical reset besure that the power does not get cut off during the reset process or you can corrupt your firmware.
