Hi, I'm Robert and I'll be helping you with your computer question.

this is a cable modem ?

You probably have to call the cable company. They have to put the id or mac number of the modem into their system. Even if they sent it to you they may still expect you to call or they might have just forgotten to put it in the system or put it in wrong.
