connecting to the internet

I have a HP laptop and I am having trouble connecting to the internet. I have contacted my internet provider and they are coming out to check out the situation. I have cable internet. My in laws have DSL and I have tried to connect over there and had no problem. The problem is the computer is not talking to the modem and not issueing an IP address. Everytime I do ipconfig/renew if responds "an error occurred while renewing interface with Local Connection. Unable to contract with DHCP server." I am thinking it is my internet provider problem not my computer problem. Wonder if anybody can help me out.
