Arris SB8200: computer (dhcp) OK; router (static) OK; router (dhcp) FAIL

My Linksys EA7500 was not connecting today. I can connect directly from my computer to the modem and get internet. The router is not able to make a connection with DHCP. When I assign a static IP, then the router is able to connect. I really need DHCP working so I don't have keep changing static IP.

It seems similar to this post:

but I don't have any rogue devices on my network (that I know of).

Did you see my post in that thread that you referenced about power-cycling the modem ?
