D-Link DIR-601 :: How To Connect WAN With A Motorola SBG901 Cable Modem

Feb 13, 2012

I've been trying to connect my D-Link DIR-601 router with a Motorola SBG901 cable modem.  The modem itself has a built-in WIFI (G) and one ethernet port, but not good enough for my purposes.  I need more wired connections and an (N) WIFI connection, which the D-Link could provide, if I could get it to work.  I just cannot get the two pieces of equipment to talk to each other.  I can set up 2 independent LAN's, but no WAN (internet connection) from either.  D-Link has provided pages of instrutions, but nothing works.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Motorola SB6141 Link Speed LED On Cable Modem Never Glows Blue

Feb 26, 2013

when I connect my DIR-655 to the Motorola SB6141 cable modem I notice that the link speed LED on the cable modem never glows blue indicating a gigabit connection, it only glows amber indicating a lower negotiated speed.  I am using a Cat6 cable between the two devices and have also tried a Cat5e cable.

When I try and force the WAN port speed to 1000Mpbs in the router interface the cable modem link speed will not light at all with no connectivity. Only resetting to Auto WAN port speed restores functionality albeit at the lower negotiated speed setting.

I'm running the DIR-655 rev B1 at 2.03NA firmware level.

I did connect the modem directly to my PC that uses an Intel Gigabit ethernet card and still had the lower connection indication (Amber) so it seems that the modem might be faulty.

Netgear WNR2000 As Repeater With Motorola SBG901?

Feb 17, 2011

I have a Motorola SBG901 router/gateway that is hooked to my desktop. I recently purchased a Netgear WNR2000 to use as a router to connect to a Blue-Ray player to receive firmware updates wirelessly. On every attempt to access the netgear unit to set it up as a repeater, I get nowhere. I tried hooking the unit up to my laptop and login in under the admin account but again to no avail. I really don't want to have to disconnect the SBG901.

Motorola SBG901 Wireless Connection Is Very Slow

Aug 12, 2012

I have Bright House as my ISP and did not want to pay a monthly rent (and an additional $45 for installation) so I decided to buy the SBG901.

Long story short I discovered that the variable and slow wireless speed is because of the wireless feature and not Bright House.

Have tried to modify several settings (as the ones found on Amazon's reviews) but still get 4-5 MB instead of the 7MB that I get with a wired connection and sometimes I do not get any wireless internet at all !

I am about to purchase a modem and a separate router if I can't find a solution for this. Unit is out of warranty so Motorola won't assist either.

Reset Motorola SBG901 Router - Now Can't Access Login Page

Feb 21, 2012

I have a Motorola SBG901 router. Typing ipconfig showed that is the Default Gateway and this is the URL I always used to access the router login page.

I reset the router today by holding the reset button. Now typing the URL does not work. The router user guide says to go to I have tried this but it also does not work. For both I just get the "problem loading page" in Firefox.

The Internet works fine both with an ethernet connection and wirelessly. My only issue is that I cannot access the Motorola router login page. I could access it fine this morning before I reset the router.

Motorola SB6120 - Port 888 Redirect To Cable Modem?

Sep 18, 2011

I was working with Motorola SB6120 cable modem regarding an odd power cycle issue (it would power cycle randomly for 24 hours). While trying to diag the issue, I was taking a peak in his router config and found a port set to forward as:

Application: Comcast
Port From: 888
Protocol: Both
Port To: 80

I understand that his modem admin page is now available from the internet. He said his friend set this up to "modem", but I don't see any advantage of having this done. At this point what are the other advantages of forwarding such ports?Another key note: When the port forwarding was disabled, suddenly the power cycle issues stopped.

Motorola SB5100 / Losing Internet Connection At Cable Modem?

Mar 19, 2012

Trying to figure out if I have a bad modem or bad wiring leading to the modem.I'm losing connectivity usually in the evening when I'm sure everything is more loaded.he reason I'm concerned about the modem is that when I lose connectivity, I can't access the modem through my browser. It won't respond. This isn't just for a moment. I'll unplug the modem and plug it back in. I can access the modem after that with my browser, but more often than not, I don't regain connectivity. It keeps trying and failiing.its a Motorola SB5100 from 10 years ago. how to seperate bad wiring from a bad modem?

Motorola VT2442 Router / SB6121 Cable Modem - Connecting Two Networks?

Apr 22, 2012

I have a 192.168.1.xxx network connected to Verizon FIOS via Actiontec MOCA / router. I also have a 192.168.15.xxx network connected to Comcast via Motorola VT2442 router (used for Vonage) and a Motorola SB6121 cable modem.

Each network has it's own gigabit switch connected to each router. The two networks are physically separated but switches and routers are physically side by side.

What is the best configuration to allow devices on 192.168.1.xxx network to communicate with devices on the 192.168.15.xxx network (share printers, NAS, etc), but still have each network served by it's respective ISP, and each device still get it's dhcp, dns, gateway, etc from each respective router?

Motorola SURFboard Extreme Cable Modem Is Connected But No Internet Access

Nov 7, 2012

Today I purchased a Motorola SURFboard extreme Cable Modem DOCSIS 3.0 in order to replace my old modem which is out of date and has been very slow as of late. I connected the coaxial cable, Ethernet cable(to Linksys wireless router), and power expecting it to simply work. All four lights came on green (power, downstream, upstream, connectivity). The downstream light turned blue which indicates a bonded connection.The device light was blinking on the modem. I connected to my wireless router, but no internet access. I then tried connecting my laptop to the modem directly via Ethernet cable, still no access. I think that rules out the router being the problem. I also ruled out my laptop being the problem as the same thing is occurring with my other laptop and desktop. I called my ISP (Cox Cable) and had them re-establish connection with my modem, this did nothing. I thought for sure this meant I had purchased a faulty modem; I hooked up my old modem and the results were the same, the modem connected fully with no problem (all four lights were green) but I have no internet access.

SB4200 - Motorola Cable Modem Regularly Drops Connection Restarts Itself

Sep 4, 2011

I have a Motorola modem SURFBoard SB4200, along with a wireless Linksys router that connects to that modem. The router works normally but the modem often dies and restarts itself after about 1-2 minutes.

What could be causing this problem? How should I start debugging it?

Could an excessive amount of network traffic be bringing down the modem? Are there any tools that can monitor the modem?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 Setup With Motorola Surfboard Cable Modem

Jun 10, 2011

I recently switched from dsl to cable. I have a e2000 router that I would still like to use. The modem I have is a Motorola Surfboard SB6121. It has no options that I can modify. The modem has a built in DHCP server. However, I can't modify it and I don't like the ip configuration it uses. For the time being I have the modem connected to a switch which is working fine. What I would like to know is how to configure the e2000 to use the modems connection. I used PPPoE for DSL and had login information.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Disconnecting With Motorola Modem (DSL)

Mar 19, 2011

I get this at random times. My internet disconnects until I reset my modem and I don't think it has anything to do with the modem because I had it replaced by my ISP and they did a few line tests and nothing was wrong. What can I do to avoid having this problem anymore? It's been doing it for almost 2 weeks now and when it decides to do it is random.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Won't Connect To Charter Cisco Dpc3010 Cable Modem

Feb 8, 2012

my dir-655 rev. A2 router won't connect to the new modem that Charter sent me. I had  the scientific Atlanta model dpc2100r2 modem but Charter called and said that they have upgraded my speed for free from 18/2 to 30/4 and that I needed a new docsis 3.0 compatable modem in order to take full advantage of the speed upgrade. I received the modem and connected an activated it according to their instructions. The modem works fine when connected to the PC only but as soon as  I connected to the dir 655 the link light went out on the modem and I lost my internet connection. The first step I took was to clone the mac address in Wan section of router. It still did not work. The next step was to turn the modem off, the router off and shutdown the PC. I waited until this morning to reconnect everything. I started the PC, then I started the modem and waited for it to stabilize and finally I restarted the router. I still had no connection. The status page of the router said that the cable was disconnected and that network was disconnected. There was no info to release so I clicked the renew button but nothing happened.

Motorola Surfboard SB6120 Modem / Can't Get PC To Connect To Broadband

Jun 22, 2011

I can't get my PC to connect to my broadband. I am running windows 7 64 bit and use the following:

Motorola Surfboard SB6120 modem;
NetGear WGR614 wireless router

I am able to connect with other devices (iPhone, Roku) to my wireless through the wireless router. My computer recognizes the broadband connection, but it won't connect to it. I get two errors when I try to connect:651: the modem has reported an error, and 638: the remote server is not responding in a timely fashion.I have tried connecting the ethernet cable directly to the modem, but I get the same results.Also, I have tried to cycle down the computer, router, then modem and turn them back on in reverse with no change in results.The connection worked until I clicked "disable connection" one day when I had trouble connecting (high traffic i think). Since then, the"home group" I set up originally with the connection wizard disappeared, and it had not been able to connect since then. When I try to connect I click on a small icon in the lower right that says, "not connected, connection available", then I click on the button to connect to broadband and get the errors described above.

D-link 604 Router Can't Communicate With Timewarner Cable Modem

Jan 9, 2013

I've had a dlink604router connected to a dsl modem for the longest time with all my computers receiving internet without any problems. I just switched to a cable modem and the router blinks as if it's communicating with the modem but no internet is getting to the computers connected to the router. I've always left the dlink's settings to default-my 2 macs receive automatic dhcp. If the settings on the dlink have to be changed to communicate with the new cable modem?

D-Link DIR-825 :: Router Stopped Communicating With Cable Modem

Jul 21, 2012

We ran a D-Link DIR-655 for about 5 years on our home network of 7 desktop computers (LAN) and two laptops (wireless) with essentially no problems.  However following a power outage last week the router stopped communicating with the cable modem (WAN port failure?). From the web site we determined that the DIR-825 is a fancier version of the DIR-655 (extra 5 GHz transmitter) so we upgraded to a new 825 three days ago. I did not use the wizard on the CD to set up the new router  -- rather did it manually because I thought I'd configure the new router exactly the same as the old one -- this was probably not a good idea in retrospect.   (FYI our new DIR-825 is a ver. B1 unit with ver. 2.02NA firmware.

After setting the router up -- it lit up like a Christmas tree and I could see all 7 desk top computers (3 are WIN7 & 4 are WINXP) in the LAN and all would go on-line with no issues.  (FYI 3 desk tops are directly attached to the DIR-825 and four attached via a switch). However, when I tried to map the network I find that only 5 of the desk tops we assigned to our named home network -- 2 or them could not be mapped as they were assigned to a "public" network.  So while they all still communicate with each other two are no longer in our home network.  I do not think this was anything that I did -- knowingly at least. 

I logged back on the the router home page but I see nothing that clues me in as to what I did wrong.So I'm wondering how the DIR-825 made these "assignments" and what I can do to redirect the router to bring the other two computers into our home network. (BTW one of the two "miss-assigned" computers is WIN7 and one is WINXP so its not a window version issue).

D-Link DIR-601 :: Must Unplug / Plug Back In Cable Modem

Jun 30, 2011

I've had my DIR-601 for almost a year now and it's been working near flawlessly until just recently.  I have a very simple setup with a desktop PC, router, Time Warner cable modem, and the only device that accesses the router is my Droid phone.  I shut my PC down every night.  The next day when starting up my PC, there's no internet connection.  I haven't fooled around with any router settings, but what I've been doing to re-connect is unplug the cable modem power cord and router power code, wait a minute, then re-plug them back in and it connects right away.  Is there something easy that I can do/repair to correct this?  Maybe I should check if there are firmware updates?

Make The Cable Modem And PC To Re-connect To The Web?

Jun 24, 2011

I am using a cable company called Cox.net for the internet. The cable modem is Motorola brand.Sometimes, the modem got disconnected due to outage in my area. But after Cox fixed the outage, I have to reset the modem. The problem is I do not know when the outage is fixed. Sometimes, I reset the modem and call cox all day long. Is there a modem which can reset itself after there is the internet signal?The second question is my desktop pc, which connected to the wireless router through a cable, sometimes displays a error page in IE8 (Internet Explorer). At the same time, the laptops using wireless can view IE8 pages.I think what happened is there is a internet signal outage in my house but the laptops got re-connected to the internet automatically and the desktop did not re-connect. Sometimes, I can ping a website on the desktop but I cannot see the pages in IE. Re-open IE does not fix the problem. The solution is to re-boot the pc. Is there a network card or software I can use to re-connect to the web after the internet signal becomes available? My pc's mother board has the network device to plug in the cable. The brand is Gigabyte.

My network currently consists of one cable modem, and one linksys router.i was given a Belkin N router as a gift, and instead of returning it for a different brand ive decided to keep it. i would like to essentially use a splitter or switch in between my current router and modem.This is the plan. Keep modem and linksys router in the den, use a splitter or switch to split the signal from the modem to each router. Use a 50+ foot ethernet cord running from the splitter or switch through the attic and into another room.

D-Link DIR-615 :: Setup Two Wireless Networks On One Comcast Cable Modem?

Apr 7, 2013

We have kids in the house and I'd like to limit their internet access to certain times of the day but because of the great amount of devices they use (phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) the only way I could think of doing that easily was to set up two wireless networks: one that the adults could use 24/7 and the other that the kids could access during certain set hours.

Here's the equipment I'm working with:

DLink DIR 615 wireless router
DLink DIR 515 wireless router
Motorola Surfboard cable modem S85101U

I plugged the DLink 615 in, set it up for DHCP client and plugged it into the cable modem. I lef the default IP address for the device. On that router, I also reserved the IP address and assigned it to the DLink 515.I also gave the DLink 515 device the IP so I could administer it.I set the DLink 515 to static IP and made the IP and the default gateway plugged the DLink 515 into one of the LAN ports in the DLink 615.I set a schedule on the DLink 615 to shut down internet access to the DLink 515 at a certain hour and turn it back on at another time.Everything seems to work ok, but at least once a day we have to unplug and plug the routers to reset them.

TP-Link Dual-Band Wireless :: Cable Modem And WDR4300 Don't Seem To Like Each Other

ISP : charter, its smarter.

so i have a sb6141 cable modem that is mine and not a lease. it works like a champ when hard wired to my desktop. i just got my hands on a new shiny tp-link wdr4300 yesterday and after messing with it for the better part of 2 hours, something seems to be amiss with the communication between the two. everything will be humming along fine and all of a sudden i get the dreaded PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED. sure as the world i look at the modem and all the lights are off and its resetting itself. and honestly this continues until i pull the power and plug it back up. i think maybe one time in the middle of the night i actually saw it reset itself and then come back online.

Get Public IP Addresses From Motorola Sbv5121e Modem?

Oct 10, 2011

I have this motorola sbv5121e modem. I can connect one PC to it directly. When I try to connect a secont PC, via a switch, it won't give out 2 IP addresses. Moreover, I see that the one IP address it does give out, is a public one (like 22.x.x.x). I'm on XP and show the addresses with ipconfig. Is this modem defective hardware-wise, or is some setting internally wrong? How can I see what the DHCP server does?
