    I am able to connect with my cable modem using the USB, but the ethernet does not work for some reason

    It just started doing this a few hours ago

    my ISP is charter communication

    modem = Ambit U10CO18

    whenever I try to go through ethernet I get "imited or no connectivity"

    I need to use the ethernet so I can get my Playstation 3 online

    it doesnt work with the PC or PS3 so it isint a PC issue

    If it's not a PC issue then it must be a bad cable or bad ethernet on the modem.

    Did you turn off the modem for at least 30 seconds to change from the USB to the Ethernet connection? That's a mandatory step.
