    I've got two new Motorola MM1000 adapters. Router -> rj45(A) -> MM1000(B) -> coax (rg6, I think) -> MM1000(C) -> rj45(D) -> laptop

    If I plug the rj45(A) into laptop, that works. If I use rj45(D) the same laptop cannot connect to the router. It fails connecting to the DHCP server.

    The LAN and LINK lights on B and C are solid green or blink.

    Any help appreciated.

    ā€œDā€ is a bad Ethernet cable? Try another?

    Used another cable. Also swapped A and D: laptop could connect to router using D ethernet. No joy.

    And another thing to try is to plug in just an adapter to the laptop and see if the laptop can get to the web interface of the adapter. Otherwise it could be an oddball nic compatibility issue, which is extremely rare, but can happen.
