Today I purchased a Motorola SURFboard extreme Cable Modem DOCSIS 3.0 in order to replace my old modem which is out of date and has been very slow as of late.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.
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 am trying to connect a Netgear wirless router to my cable modem. I have followed the instructions on the set up wizard but it fails to get a connection with the IP and DNS info I provide.I got the IP address info by connecting intially direct from the modem to the PC and then went to Run CMD and type ipconfig /all. I then started the set up wizard and followed the instructions, turning things on in specific order etc. After input the IP and DNS info it reports an error and tells me to check the address information is correct.My internet is a static IP connection (so it tells me and the IP information doesn't change).
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 ?
Adding ports to my Fairpoint provided Westell 7500 Rev D DLS modem router which has only 4 RJ45 ports. Bought a Linksys SE2500 gigabit smart switch but it doesn't assign IP or pass on router assigned IPs. Can't get ASSISTANCE from Fairpoint [successor to Verizon] configuring router or any advice on other ways to get more wired devices on LAN.For speed in backups I'd like 3 devices to be able to communicate at giabit speed Want to have an NAS and 2 Win7 Ultimate computers on smart switch, 3 other wired devices [WinXP, AT&T Cell tower, & DirectTV whole house SWM interface] and wireless on the router. 1. Are Fairpoint specs for DSL published so I could get another DSL modem router instead of the Westell or is it better to configure Westell as a router only and use a new to be acquired router with or without the existing or a new gigabit switch. I have a DI-624 from the pre-DSL Hughesnet satellite days.2. Are there less smart switches which would work better and let router assign the IPs?3. If this is too complex for me, can you recommend a remote access consultant to walk me through this for a fee?4. I'm 82, have been in computing since 1960, mainly in on-line end user environment mbut don't know the bridging, PPP PPoE differences, and implementation or configuration details of current hard and software except as a user.
My Motorola SBG901 Modem/Router combo has stopped connecting to the internet. I have done all the troubleshooting with Comcast and with Motorola and it is out of warranty, so I will have to purchase a new one.In the mean time, I wanted to use it only as a wireless router connected to my Scientific Atlanta DPC2100R2 modem. Is there anyway to do this? Is there a way to disable the modem in the SBG901? Simply connecting with the ethernet cords has not worked. I connected the DPC2100 to the SBG901 via ethernet cord. My computer was able to pick up a wireless connection but there is no cable connection.
how do i create 2 networks using 1 cable modem and 1 router and i would like to add a firewall thinking of using xywall usg20 for the firewall..... the issue is i have a small business with 1 point of sale and1 back office computer.(network1) and i would also like to use an air port wifi to offer wifi to my cleints on a seperate network(network2) not allowing access to network1 and i want a firewall on network 1 to protect the back office and pos system
I inherited a BEFCMU10 v.3 cable modem from my boss who switched to FiOS and I would like to use this with my Comcast connection.All I received from him is the cable modem and power adapter, what do I need to install and get this cable modem working? My router is WRT-54G.
Motorola Surfboard 6121, Every since Com-cast has updated their network (two months ago), my Internet connection is VERY unstable.Com-cast says it is my problem because I can get reliable service at high speed using just my laptop: Win 7, and the Motorola modem. The modem does show high speed connection (blue light) when the only thing connected is the laptop.If I connect the rest of the home network; ,LinkSys BEFSR11 router, Netgear FS #108 10/100 switch, then my laptop. The Surfboard modems light turns orange (lower connection speeds). do I need to replace my NetGear switch and my router? This constant up and down intermittent connection is terrible!
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.
The first router is wired to the DSL modem and works just fine as an access point with Internet access. The second router is wired from the first router using one of the 4 ports on both router hubs. The second router is visible but has no Internet. How to configure the second router regarding DHCP, LAN, WAN, DNS etc.
I have charter cable coming tomorrow to install cable television and internet. I am using my own modem and router instead of renting one because they dont have any available to meet the install date?Should I just rent one from them and wait or should I just buy a different cable modem. I will be getting the Ultra cable package from charter that has speeds up to 100Mbps download and 5Mbps upload. I would say it is going to run around 60. I have a RCA DCM315 modem and a Linksys WRT54G v6 router with DD-WRT firmware. max up and down speed for the RCA DCM315 modem.
my computer will connect wired to internet and can find the wireless connection but wont connect. my wireless icon flashes intermitently and my mobile will work via wifi. do i need a new router this one is a G wireless Modem router Belkin had it for about 4 years?
Currently, my Cisco DPC3010 cable modem is connected directly to one of the Ethernet ports on my Linux router. All works quite well that way. However, I'm curious to know if there's some what to separate the router and cable modem over 2 switches?
The coax enters the house in my living room and connects to the CM there. The router is also sitting in the living room, and it's connected to a Cisco SG200-18 switch. I have Ethernet running from my living room to my basement, where a Cisco SG500-24 switch sits. The two switches are connected via a 2xGigE port channel.
I want to move the router into the basement. Ideally, I'd like to move the CM down there with it, but I don't have the necessary coax run. So for now, that's out. But... can I go from something like this:
I tried it, complete with a separate VLAN specifically for the CM traffic. And the VLAN was properly trunked between the two switches. But for some reason, the router was unable to communicate via IP to the upstream. I'm not sure if there are config bits I need to set on the SG200 that the CM is connected to? I thought I'd read somewhere that CMs don't like broadcast technology such as LLDP and/or CDP, so I disabled both of those on its port. Did I miss something else perhaps? Or am I trying to do the impossible?
For what it's worth: the IP connectivity is static. There's no DHCP running between my router and the upstream cable provider. The cable modem is literally acting as a L2 coax-->Ethernet convertor, more or less.
I am using a E2000 connected to a DSL modem via the internet port. My modem is able to connect at gigabit speed but it doesn't seem to be the case with the E2000. All other ports are running at gigabit speed without problem. Is there any parameter that can be modified or is it a router limit?
I am somewhat of a neophyte at networking and I have a question. I have a small business network using a secure wireless router connected to my cable modem. We have a DVR security system which we would like to monitor remotely. I would like to keep the DVR separate from my secure wireless router for security reasons. My thought is to connect the DVR through a cable or wired modem into my cable modem. Do you folks think this will cause an issue with the wireless router which uses DHCP to determine the IP address?
Trouble connecting to the internet wireless with Motorola SB6120 and Linksys WRT120N. The modem works directly with LAN but as soon as I try to use the router, I can connect to the network but no internet is available.
I just got a DSL Modem router (DSL 2750U) which has DSL input for internetconnectivity.My internet service provider provides RJ45 Cable which needs LAN input socket on a router for internet connectivity. How do I connect?
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.
My main networking device is the Ericsson T073G HGU ONT, and when I am connecting to the network through the Ethernet there are no problems. However when I connect my Belkin F6D4230-4 router to it (through cable) my router cannot recognize the modem.I have tried literally everything.
