Windows 7: Modem issue

Modem issue

I've been trying to connect my laptop to my modem back home, and while it used to work in the past, it no longer works now. It says its an unidentified network (no router by the by).

Troubleshooting the problem gave me this:
"Local Area Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration.

I power cycled the modem to no avail.
I tried ipconfig/release and then renew and came across this error
An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to contact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

On a side note I also get a ton of media disconnected. So my IPConfig looks like this:
C:\Windows\system32>ipconfig/renew

Windows IP Configuration

An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : unable to con
tact your DHCP server. Request has timed out.

C:\Windows\system32>ipconfig

I used to connect to this modem in the past, and it worked perfectly fine no problem. Now I can't get it to connect at all, and what is more, it connects the desktop, so I know its not a faulty ethernet cable or something like that.

I'm not particularly computer savvy, except for what I google, and this problem seems to be harder to resolve than I first presumed. Any suggestions?
