Reginald is correct.
It is an Idiosyncrasy of those cablemodems. It is unnecessary with DSL
Those cablemodems (at least the Motorolas), they won't talk to a new device
until you cycle the modem power. So if you switch from having a direct
connection the PC to having a router (or vice-versa), it won't work until
you cycle the modem power.
(Annoyingly, neither Time-Warner nor the router manufacturers tell you that
in their user manuals.)
