Second firewall won't connect to internet

Last Modified: 2012-08-18
I have one cable modem connection to the internet. I have a switch splitting the output from the modem off to two hardware firewalls via ethernet. I can power cycle the modem, then the hardware firewalls, but the second hardware firewall that I power cycle won't get the internet connection. The first one I power cycle will connect to the internet... Is there a way around this?
