I have the Motorola SURFboard SG6580 cable modem/wireless router combo. However, I'm only using my Linksys WRT54GL for the wireless functions. It's been my old standard for years, not to mentioned I have my entire wireless encrypted network setup via this device.
So, recently I've been trying to set up Port Forwarding and I've been having trouble getting sites like canyouseeme.org to see the port. After speaking with Tech Support at my ISP, they had me disable some of the settings in my SURFboard modem in order to deactivate the router side of things to get it act only as a cable modem. However, my port forwarding is still not working.
Here is a screen shot of all the pertinent screens of my SG6580 properties, and what they had me set. if I have properly configured the modem to not interfere with my other wireless setup so I can at least rule this out as what's blocking my port forwarding?
I use Motorola SBG 900 Wireless Surfboard Gateway with Timewarner service provider. I have couple of problems....
Problem 1 : I use VOIP phone (Vonage) which connected to my Motorola wireless device, current when i call somebody using VOIP phone, they can hear my voice but i cant hear them... Last years i dont have any problem but last one month above problem exists.
Problem 2: I tried Speed test with cable (13MBPS download stream) but through wireless (6MBPS download stream)
I own a Motorola SurfBoard SBG900 wireless modem. It has worked fine for years. I just went on vacation for 2 weeks and unplugged my computers, printer, modem etc. Upon returning I can not get any wireless signal from my sbg900. The wireless light at the bottom is no longer lit up either. I can connect via ethernet cable however.
Would this work ?. also, on the back of the modem is a rectangular, not the typical, usb slot. I cannot move the modem because it is connected to the wall. I don't want to use an extra long wire either. What do I need to buy so I can use the wired modem, as a wireless one on my pc downstairs ?
I can't connect my router (WRT54GL) to my new cable modem (Motorola Surfboard SB6120).
Some info: 1) Cable modem works perfectly when connected directly to computer ethernet port 2) ISP is Optimum Online 3) Using Automatic DHCP setting on router 4) Using MAC cloning on router 5) I can access the router's admin screen from the PC 6) I can connect to the router wirelessly, but no internet access 7) I've tried powering down everything multiple times, still no internet access 8) I upgraded the router firmware to 4.30.14 9) The "link" light on the cable modem never lights up when connected to the router
I have used this router without issue for several years at two addresses on 3-4 computers. Two years ago, the cable tech (Time Warner) hooked it up when he installed the modem (Surfboard SBV5220) which also provides phone service.
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.
I just set up a brand new LinksysE4200 router at one end of my home, and a Linksys RE1000 range expander at the other end in order to provide full WiFi coverage to my entire house. Everything is working great except for one important detail.. There is currently no way to disable SSID broadcast on the RE1000 range expander! I just flashed it with the latest firmware (v1.0.01 build 2, Jul 22, 2011) , but I'm still unable to disable it, even though it is disabled on the E4200 from which it's receiving the signal it's rebroadcasting. I am seriously considering returning the RE1000. Linksys. add the ability to disable SSID broadcast on the RE1000 in a (not too distant) future firmware upgrade! As far as I'm concerend, this is a MUST HAVE feature in order for this product to even be considered for use in any sensitive network environment.
I have a Linksys E4200 router with firmware version 1.0.02. I am using a Macbook Pro. I can connect to a VPN server with the default VPN client software, but it kills my internet connection and disables connecting to SMB
I've had the wireless G adapter for a year now, and connections work with both 2.4GHz and 5GHz G connections. I just bought a wireless N adapter (2.4GHz and 5GHz capable), and cannot get an N connection.. On 2.4GHz it connects to G only. And on 5GHz, I don't even see the whole band to connect to it.
I've tried disabling the 5GHz band on the E3000, then even setting the 2.4GHz band to no security. I still get a G only connection.My laptop can connect to 2.4GHz and get 144Mbps N speeds.Router is at latest firmware.I've researched this online, but can't find anything concrete.
After some research, I noticed I'm having the same problem with my Inspiron N4010's wireless card as mentioned in this post. I purchased this laptop refurbished from the Dell Outlet store over a year ago.
Yes, I have tried re-installing the drivers, the BIOS is updated, and no I am not pressing that key when the wireless card randomly disables. Normally it will re-enable after a few minutes or if I keep pressing that key it may re-enable. Sometimes it will take a restart for it to re-enable.
This is a completely random problem too. I am unable to reproduce the problem.
I am just about ready to replace the card and see if that works (the laptop is out of warranty and I'm comfortable inside of a laptop so that is not an issue).
I've had a WRT160N v3 for a couple of years, and I've noticed that the wireless security setting is often set to disabled when I go into the configuration, even though I've set to enabled previously. It goes like this....
I've setup the router to have WPA2 Personal security enabled, with a passphrase. I have several devices that use wireless that connect to it everyday. I recently received a new device, so I went into the Linksys configuration to get my passphrase, and the Security is set to disabled. So, I enable it again, configure a the device, and have no problems.
This has happened many times. I just happen to be in the router configuration and check the wireless security tab, and it is set to disabled.
My first thought was that maybe there had been a power loss (although, I can't remember the last power outage we had in my area). However, every other setting was retained, so I can't see why this would be the only one that changes (and it's a rather important setting). Additionally, I was configuring a blue-ray player last night, trying to see if it was better with a wired setting from another Access Point, and the setting was disabled, so I enabled it again. I made changes to the BR player, then changed it back to a wireless connection. I checked the security setting on the Linksys, and AGAIN it was disabled.

Is it possible to disable broadcasting that the WDR4300 is made by TP-Link? I want to continue to broadcast the SSID but not the manufacturer. I have looked in the various menu pages and cannot figure out how to have this happen.
We have disabled the WebAuth SecureWeb on our 5508 WLCs so Guest users can access the guest splash page without the certifiacate error. The controllers are currently running 22.214.171.124. Everything works fine with the WebAuth SecureWeb enabled, but once we disable the guest users are not redirecting to the splash page anymore. I remember having to reload the controller in the past to disable HTTPS completely, but is this still the case? I don't see any documentation supporting the need to reload.
I purchased this router so my wife who is recovering from a stroke could access the internet from her bed via her laptop when she's in too much pain to get to her desktop.I am the only person in my area with wireless N. As a result I am being assaulted relentlessly by people trying to steal my bandwidth or worse. In NY the owner of the router is legally responsible for the what the thief does when he's managed to hack into your router. And since this router is dual band; they have twice the opportunity to break down my defenses.Since this router has a 4 port wired switch which I use for all the PC's in the home except the laptop; is there a way to "switch off" the wireless function of the router until such time as it's needed?I have worked with an online advisor to make my router as secure as possible but the shear volume of security breaches makes changing the security settings, passwords; block ip's ect a full time job for a wireless function that is only used some of the time.I would like to be able to switch the wireless on and off at will without affecting the wired connection like I can do on my laptop.I want to make my wife as comfortable as possible but I don't want to get arrested because some wireless theif broke into my router and used it to download kiddieporn or whatever with my ip address.
I was quite excited about E4200 I got yesterday. Everything works perfect except front LED light start blinking a few hours later. Don't know why it happens in a sudden and non-stop. After several tries, I found that disabling SSID broadcast for both 2.4 and 5GHz stops the blinking.Of course, before doing that, I upgraded firmware to 1.0.02, reset to factory defaults and finally set up E4200 manually rather than using Cisco Connect. Now the LED light is continuously lit.
I'm having a problem with my wireless connection. Every so often my wireless signal, showing a red cross next to the wireless bar, or it will lose the original connection on the available network lists after disconnecting. Every time it does so I've found that sending my computer to sleep and waking it up again solves the problem (I can reconnect to my original network). However, this is very annoying, as it some times happens every 5 minutes, and some times only every 2 hours.I have tried unticking the box on my network adapter with 'Turn off to save power', but this hasn't worked.
The only way we can use our Motorola router is unencrypted. I have gone into the router numerous times and reset it, unplugged it, retyped the WEP key, tried to shift to WPA and nothing works. None of three computers in the house will connect unless all encryption is off. We live in a good neighborhood on a cul de sac, don't get a lot of traffic through here, and know the immediate neighbors, but nothing is stopping a stranger with a laptop from sitting on the street and using our wifi. I've talked to the Comcast tech. The trouble just seems to be our boxes won't get past the WEP encryption stage.
I reconnected my SB after letting it sit powered down for 6 minutes to lose all of its configuration and I was then able to get it to connect to Cox's provisioning site and was able to get online with it, had to then force my router to re-detect the connection and now it is also working.Last night my ISP had an outage, or something, and I was not able to connect for quite awhile, keep in mind that my modem was working all day yesterday.It came back up around 2:30 or 3 am last night but since I was rendering some footage in Sony Vegas I did not check to make sure everything was good. So I get on my computer this afternoon and find that I am not connected to the net and that I can not ping nor connect to my SB5101. Pings all say Request timed out.All of the lights that should be on are on: power, receive, send, online all green, activity solid amber, which is almost never solid usually flashing. So I power cycle it and my router and plug them back in but now the internet light on my router never turns green, just flashing/solid amber.I am able to connect to my router, a netgear WRG3500, through the gui interface just fine. So I connected directly to my surfboard and was still unable to pull an ip address or connect to the gui for it. All pings and address renews resulted in request times out or media disconnected messages.At this point it is looking like my SB has gone bad, but I do not see how that could possibly be. These things usually have downward slides into crappy brokeness, this was immediate without any problems for 2 years.I am connected atm with my old D-Link DCM 202 modem I had before this one, which does not want to talk with my router, not sure why.
im trying to get my linksys router to work and it wont. when i have it hardwired PC to cable modem it works fine but i try to plug in the router and the internet stops working. i can see the router and connect to it but it says no internet access. samething happens on both my PC running Xp and dell laptop running win7.
I was wondering if it was possible to connect my Motorola Surfboard SB6141 to my xbox 360. The internet works fine on my computer but when I plug the cable into my xbox it doesn't connect to live at all.
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.
I have a Surfboard 5120, which has both Ethernet and USB ports. According to the manual, a different PC (or, in the case of the Ethernet port, PC or switch) can be connected to each.
The ethernet port is already connected via a long, in-wall RJ-45 line to a Netgear wireless router elsewhere in the house.
As of yesterday, sitting next to the Surfboard I now have a network-ready Onkyo AVR (audio-visual receiver) with Ethernet port. I am wondering if I can use a simple USB to Ethernet connector to provide internet to the Onkyo. I am not very network savvy and don't know if the AVR would be able to connect okay.
My "network savvy" is so bad that I will probably screw it up if I were to connect the cable modem's single ethernet port to a switch, and then attempt to connect that switch to both the Netgear wireless route and also the Onkyo AVR (assign IP addresses etc).
I have a SB6121 Motorola Modem for my Comcast Service.The modem is supposed to give out an ip range of 192.168.100.11-40When I reboot the modem I temporarily get a 192.168.100.12 IP address but then somehow it changes to a 126.96.36.199 ip.I can't get it to stick on the 192.168.100.x network so I can't access anything.Before I had my pc connected to a Netgear Router which received the internet from the SB6121 but I am needing to troubleshoot some issues with a freePBX server so I plugged straight into the gateway.
I have a 2nd computer wired up to my modem, but the LAN keeps randomly dropping every 2-5 hours It never drops for my main computer.I tried swapping cords and ports, but it still disconnects, while my main computer remains connected The internet worked fine when connected to another modem in another house.Do you think this is a problem with the modem or Windows7?I hard-reset the modem to factory settings, but it still happens.the modem is a Motorola Surfboard SBG6580
I have a Motorola SURFBoard 6580 as my cable modem + router + 802.11n AP. I wanted to add an AP on the second floor of the house for better signal. I have read that APs from different manuafacturers are not necessarily compatible for seamless roaming. Well, I guess the worst case is to turn off wifi on the SURFBoard and get 2 identical APs, but that's not ideal.
