Hello All,

Thanks for all the suggestions. What I have tried:
1) Cloned MAC address of HFC/(cable mac) modem to server eth1, no luck.
2) Cloned MAC address of eth1 k12ltsp server to Linksys router router
obtains ip address as expected from sb5120.
3) Made sure arp cache is cleared( This happens when eth1 is
One thing I noticed that is odd is,when the eth1 cat5 wire is plugged
into modem the activity light is unlit. After activating the eth1 and
goes through the trying to obtain IP address gyrations,and fails,the
modem activity light stays lit. It appears at this point the SB5120
modem is hanged. 
Of course I do not have a spare/different modem to try with. The
connection is rock solid with the Linksys modem attached,though.
As I stated before the server always throws different errors each time
after trying to obtain an ip.
This a 3 year old modem and design wise I'm guessing 6-7 years old.
