I did not understand you, can you give me some more information please ?
What i meant was to check both machines, the one that works and the one that done work, to see if there are any settings differences. Usually in the tcp/ipv4 properties.
To do this you may have to write down the settings from the machine that works (when it is connected to the modem), and then try and see if those settings matches the machine that doesn't work.
Also you said, you said you connected the issue machine into another network and it works, what network is this? But when I disconnected my laptop and connected the second laptop, it got 192.168.1.111 as an IP Address.
When you unplug one machine and connect another, the DHCP allocates the next available IP to that machine. It doesn't know that you have unplugged the first machine. It's easier to set ip to auto detect, cos if you set things to manual ips, and you modem is set to dhcp enabled, you might get issues.
