I'm attempting to connect a NV 1335 to a Charter/Spectrum cable modem Arris Tm1602. This is just a modem, not a router, so there are no settings in it. I previously had a Netgear router connected to the modem, and it retrieves the dynamic IP from the modem just fine. I then reboot the modem, connect the 1335, and it will never get an IP address.
A couple of interesting things:
When I ran "debug ip dhcp client vlan 2", it showed that the DCHPDISCOVER would be sent, but the DHCPOFFER would never be received. Then when I plugged it into the Netgear, it did receive the DHCPOFFER and the rest of the negotiation. I never caught the times it got a 192.168.100.x, but I assume it got the offer but not the rest of the negotiation.
The question is, based on the apparently odd way the Arris modem is set up, is there something I can change in the 1335 setup to accommodate this and make the DHCP work?
