You should get further than that even with locked firmware. Double check that your network card settings are correct, disable any other network cards, wireless etc. Make sure all AV and firewalls are off. You could also try re-booting your PC.

I take it you can get to the modem web page on 192.168.100.1 - try resetting defaults on the modem configuration page.
