The relevant messages are:

The failure is happening in DHCP.  The DHCP server (cable modem?) is
not responding to the request for configuration on eth1.  After the
failure to obtain a configuration (IP address), NetworkManager falls
back to configuring a (useless) link local address.

I have no idea *why* there's no response from your DHCP server.
