Frustrated Noob

Thanks to everyone that replied to my plea for help. I got it working and here's the steps that I used:

  1. Unplug and disconnect coax on the modem
  2. Replace the router with new one flashed with OpenWRT
  3. Turn on the router and get a LAN IP on the laptop.
  4. Reset the OpenWRT on the router to defaults
  5. Get a new LAN IP on the laptop
  6. After the modem has been disconnected for 30 minutes, reconnect coax and power
  7. Voila! It works!

Thanks again!
