    I recently disconnected my cable modem from my Desktop PC to use my work laptop, but my ip address on the Desktop has disappeared and when I plug it back in it doesn't renew itself.

    You have to power cycle the modem when you switch from one computer to another. Unplug the modem, wait a minute, then plug it back in.
