my TWC connection and I can surf the net everywhere but when he takes it to his home and connects through his DSL he can pull up Google and can even search through Google but he cannot go to yahoo.com or Aol.com. Malwarebytes comes up with no infected files. I did a restore and the same problem. I did a recover! And same problem. I pulled up a Cmd window and run an ipconfig. I am used to seeing a 192.168.x.x address but on his I get a 10,x,x,x number.
I am using a Belkin Surf wireless modem/router with this computer (Vista) no problems at all.When I boot up my HTPC (Windows 7) all is fine until it tries to connect with the Belkin Surf. Then its Blue Screen of Death and no joy. If I turn off the modem, the HTPC boots up perfectly normally. Turn the modem on and as soon as I try to recognise the home network, it crashes again.
I have a modem Scientific Atlanta 2100. I just installed windows 8 pro 64bit and when installing the driver to use the usb cable modem does not recognize it and simply not installed. I wonder if it is possible to use my usb cable modem or simply incompatible with my windows 8 64bit pro.
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.
I can't get a new IP from my ISP when my Cable modem router(EPC3925) is set to router mode, i have tried factory restore, unplugged etc..but still no luck. It changes each time i reset it when i set it to bridged only mode but then i won't be able to connect other devices to it since it doesn't uses DHCP in bridged only mode. It changes back to the IP i had when i set it to router mode. I don't want to change my router settings to bridged only because it would disconnect the other devices in my house. Why my ISP assigns the same IP address when it's set to router mode but assigns different IPs when it's set to bridged only, how is this possible ?
I'm switching to cable internet service instead of DSL. My Netgear router will not work with my cable modem; but it works like a charm with my DSL modem. Is it a problem with the router setup? Good thing I still have the DSL service.
Anyway, my PC kills my modem in record time every time, but the cable modem is fine with my PS3.Within a few minutes of hooking up the PC the connection dies and must be rebooted to work again on anything (even the PS3). During this time the network shows as unidentified and won't even give access to its status page (192.168.100.1).The PS3 doesn't ever induce this state.I have tinkered with settings, drivers, and even clean installs. The modem has no settings I can alter. PC is WIN 7 and the modem is an advanced DOSCIS 3.0 Linksys/Cisco. ISP is Comcast.
I was wondering is it OK if I leave on my cable modem constantly? I have it plugged in to a surge protector as well as other things including my laptops accessories as well. I work from home so I need to be protected, anyway I read from one source that you should keep the cable modem on as it is too much of a hassle to turn it off and then turn it on as the network could get delayed for a couple minutes or something? Also I read as well though that you should turn off the cable modem once a month or something to clear out memory? Is that correct? I leave my computer laptop on all the time with an exception of one day a week. I turn it off for 8 hours supposedly I read it is good for cleaning out memory etc.
I wanna subscribe to Internet TV. To watch it on computer screen I need to log in to the site where I registered, i.e. enter my login ID and password. But I want to watch it on my TV WITHOUT my PC. I realize that I have to buy a TOP BOX , connect it to TV and to cable modem. The question is how the TOP BOX knows my login and password to pass it to the site through modem.How do I enter it to tob box?
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.
I have a pc running windows 7 connected to a broadband modem. From that modem I have a LAN cable running to another building plugging into a wifi router. I have 2 pcs running xp plugged into this wifi router. (they can see each other)Is it possible for the 3 pcs to see each other on the network?The only way I got it to work was if all pcs were connected to the same modem. However to save running super long cables for each pc I want to run just one between the modems and then plug all pcs into that wifi modem which is close to everything.
The network card in my PC supports 1Gbit ethernet, my 2TB NAS also supports 1Gbit ethernet, however both of these are currently run through a 100Mbit cable modem/router thus reducing the connection speed. I was wondering if I purchased a 1Gbit switch and connected all my devices directly into that, then connected it into the cable modem, would the PC communicate with the NAS directly via the switch or would it go through the cable modem?
If one has internet and phone service through Cable, I know you can buy your own modems and routers, but is there a particular kind of modem you'd need to get to support VOIP for the phone?
A friend of mine has phone through Cable and her internet and phone suddenly stopped working, although her TV service is fine. We are thinking that maybe the cable company's modem is bad, so she wants to buy her own modem, but we're not sure if it needs to be a particular type of modem. I've looked around for her, but haven't found anything in modem specs stating they support VOIP. Does it matter? Or can you buy any cable modem?
We already looked at the cable providers website to see their supported modems, but they are all the same brand as the one she has that doesn't work. She already has a wireless router, which she will plug into the modem she buys, so we're only looking for answers regaring a modem.
My son has a modem that can be wireless or cable. He mostly uses it via cable, but can I set up my wireless computer to use the modem at same time or would he need to have the modem set to wireless? Failing that, could I set up a second modem as a wireless one just for me?
We are a small office currently running a regular network (9 wired, 2 wireless) and also using the "guest" feature (7 wireless) on a Linksys E2000. We have a switch to connect our wired equipment to the E2000. If "A" is our regular network, and "B" is our guest network, is it possible to have 2 routers on 1 cable modem and still prevent network "A" from seeing Network "B" and vice versa?? We are looking to do this because we will soon be exceeding the maximum guest users (10) allowed by the E2000. We have another Linksys router in storage, I think it is a WRT54G, that we would use if this is possible.
I am having 5 IP addresses assigned to me. I have one commercial/business modem/gateway/router. If I want to have the advantage of separate lines (go with this for now) how else can the gateway do it other than simply passing the IP directly through, no router function, basically a modem/switch, everything else not there.
I have quest dsl internet service. in the rural area i live it's the best i can do. I have a leftover netgear CG3000D cable modem. can I use that netgear somehow to wifi my home for my android phone, using the quest net service?
My mother has an older Compaq laptop running XP home edition. She hasn't used this laptop for a while and it won't connect to the internet through her cable modem.I know it isn't a modem or ISP problem since my laptop will connect just fine. By the way, we are connecting to the cable modem with a cat 5.
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.
cable company connected cable modem to computer, and left us to do the wireless set-up. during this process, we had to disconnect the ethernet cords and reconnect at correct locations. Now, no internet period. The cable modem is not showing a send signal
Ambit U10C018 send light not working. All other lights indicate proper functions. Usb not in use or connected. Enet, power, ready, receiving and sync all appear to be working properly. Have rebooted both modem and computer countless times, replaced Ethernet card (DFE-530TX+(Rev f), checked cables, all appear normal. Suddenlink service, cable guy didn't locate problem (didn't try very hard either).
A friend recently re-installed windows XP on their HP Laptop. They were connected wirelessly with a Linsys router (model wrt54g.1) and an RCA Cable Modem. The Cable ISP can ping the modem and gave me the IP address over the phone. I cannot ping the modem even when I take the router out of the loop. The network card (i1394) in the Laptop is functioning normally and I can see traffic on the modem (both the Cable Internet light and the PC activity light are flashing green) the ethernet port on the laptop is also flashing (amber). However I cannot reach the internet and cannot even ping the modem. The modem is brand new..
Last week, a big storm rolled through my town while I was out of the area on business. I had a working LAN/WLAN for my home & home office, and the modem I was using got fried by the storm. Strangely enough nothing else was affected..Anyway, I went out and bought an identical modem, and had it set up with Comcast. If I connect directly to the modem, everything works perfectly. But when I try to attach my router to the new modem, I have no connectivity over wifi OR hardwired to the router. According to the status light on the router, it can't find a connected modem.I reset the router back to factory settings, installed the newest firmware, and moved my DHCP pool out of the default range. I then power cycled the whole setup - twice - with no success.
