    Is the cox modem also a wifi router? If so you need to be sure that it is set to be a DHCP server as well. That should be a setting you can enable or disable from within the modem settings.

    If you can not tell if it's a wifi device I'm guessing it's probably not.

    Cox seems to have its own issues.

    I think you might need to have them resync the modem with their servers.

    just give them a call and they should be send the signal form their end to yours and put it back online properly.
