Windows 7: please help! unidentified public network with invalid ip

They shouldn't do it but that's not to say they aren't going to do it

The modem is a learning device, it will learn from the start what machine is connected to it during initial setup, this will be logged at the ISP end. This is not to say the modem cannot learn more MAC addresses. People buy new machines so the modem has to know that MAC address has changed and it has to learn this. I have not come across a modem that doesn't have this capability.

Have you spoken to your ISP, resetting the modem would be what they might end up asking you to do anyway.

I have called the isp but didn't get to technical at the time just asked if everything looked okay on their end and he said yes he was seeing that everything was okay and he could read a signal from the modem and he said he could tell it was hooked up properly he even sent a signal through to reset the modem which didn't help. I have an older laptop which I don't use cuz the cd drive is busted and the built in wireless card doesn't work but I pluged it into the modem then reset it and it works fine so I know the modem can change automatically for different computers cuz the internet works fine on it actually web pages load faster than on my desktop which has a faster processor and more ram

Modems as i said has a learning capability, it has a cache that it uses to id machine that is hooked up to it. Often even accessing the modem firmware is problematic if you are using a non original machine that originally connect to it...it just need to learn who is knocking on the door.

So all good now?
