Hey guys my buddy tried moving his Ethernet cable from his ps3 to his computer. When he did this it would only be a local connection and of course never fully connect. I tried resetting the modem and checked over everything in his connection settings that i know. Is the IP address the problem or what?

I told him that he needs a router for sure. Please fill me in if you can. Thanks!

What kind of computer was he using? O.S.? Odds are he needed to do an IP release / renew to pull down not only the proper IP address, but the DNS servers, too. Likely what is happening is his computer's not receiving a request to renew the IP from the Modem.
