Okay so I bought a Toshiba Pcx1100u cable modem the other day (I know its outdated, but it only cost me 3 bucks). I was able to successfully install all the driver software and update it. Everything is connected correctly, my power light is on and PC light is on. The problem is my cable light is only blinking slowely. Now I have Time Warner Cable, and I know that I can get internet from cable, because of the fact that my other computer is getting internet through another cable modem. I plugged my modem into that computer into the cables used for the other modem, and once I did that the cable light started blinking fast. I talked to Time Warner and they say oh this is Toshiba's problem, but when I looked at other forums posts about this modem it says the slow blinking light is the cable's problem.... I am stuck any help?

Is timewarner assigning you two IP addresses? Each modem has a unique MAC address that is registered with timewarner IME they will only allow the assigned MAC address to be connected. If your trying to get internet on both pc's why not get a router?

I have one, but the internet is too slow via wireless. But I do have news!

So I was successfully able to get my cable light to become solid!

Now ofcourse there's another problem

The computer isn't recognizing the modem via usb, and when i try the ethernet cable it says: unidentified network... grr
