I think the confusion comes from the fact that your modem is also a router (it has DHCP) and the Linksys is also a router, don't call it a switch. They both assign addresses and might have firewalls active, try to disable all of them on the modem/router and use it only as a modem. Then configure everything on the Linksys router.
Time Warner never had a problem with whatever MAC I used, now I have Cox and it's the same. But I had a friend in Florida that wasn' allowed to use different MACs or have more than one PC connected (of course he connected more behind a router, with one cloned MAC and one IP visible to them).
