Also, I tried the cable thing before, but it didn't work out, but a great suggestion none the less. I had an IT professor that said 80% of networking problems are in the cabling. Not sure how true that stat is, but I take it into consideration every time I troubleshoot problems.
Thanks for your help.

1. turn off the cable modem and unplug ethernet cable
2. wait for few min (20min)
3. turn on the cable modem only and do NOT plug any ethernet cable
4. wait until all the light up on cable modem
5. ONLY after all the light is up. hook up a router behind the cable modem
6. you should able to get public IP from the ISP and it will show up in the router status when you login the router.
** remove the BATTERY from the cable modem if built-in and follow from #1~
