I have a desktop pc that if I connect it to the network at my office it works fine. But when I take it to the house it will not aquire the IP address. I have tried to reset the cable modem (no router) and also have done a repair on the connection icon.

I have also installed a USB network connector and tested it at the shop (works fine) but it still has the same error that it can't aquire a ip add at the house.

both the home and office use the same ISP (charter). I have also tried both static and DHCP connection types

Any suggestions ?
