Okay my modem has been working fine. The other day I got home and it said limited or no connectivity. The IP address started with 169. Are there any commands i can put in to fix it? Or is this not possible to fix. Please help.

Hi, you have a local address. First are all the lights on the router/modem showing correctly? If so open a command prompt and type in:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

If this does not work you may need to restart your router and leave it off for a minute before restarting.
