And connect to your ADSL or Cable Modem or whatever, with your web
browser, and confirm that it has received an IP address from your ISP.
 Is your box connected directly to the Modem/Router? Or, do you have a
LAN and have other boxes receiving an IP address OK from your router?
We had a problem, 3 days ago, when we did not receive an IP for our
ADSL and we could not get to the Internet, until they fixed their
problem. Verify again that your box is set up to receive an IP address
via DHCP and also that your Modem/Router is set up to receive an IP
address via DHCP. You may need to do some additional configuration
