Question about Motorola Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a motorola wireless modem; have had it for years. It's worked great. It works now well on the computer I'm currently using, an iMac. Over the last several months, I've either not been able to connect through the Motorola, like today, or the connection strength has been very low. That's the problem. Any ideas? Note: last night there were four people with lap tops close to the modem and could not connect either. So it does not seem to be only my computer. Two lap tops were Macs the other two were Vaios.

So if you connect the computer directly to the modem , it works .
That means your modem is working properly. Your ISP is DSL connection. Now connect the modem to the router and the computer to the router. Open the router xet up page and change the settings of the router according to the type of connection you have.
There are 2 types of connection in DSL.
DHCP and PPPOE .

Can I setup a cable modem with a router


You can if the router is wireless and you have a wireless card in your computers. If not, then you will have to upgrade the router to a wireless and get wireless cards in the computers or run a cable to the 2nd floor

No need to install the dlink on the imac. All you need to do is connect the modem first the dlink. (Modem connected to Internet or WAN port of the dlink). Now if they are connected, your imac should be plugged in to port 1 of dlink, and your PC to port 2. That should do it.

Ativa router and at&t


there is a link in the motorola UI that allows it to be put in "bridged mode" so you can configure the router. however, before you do this, i suggest you have to make the motorola (is it 2100?) modem work with your computer, connect this modem to your computer using ethernet connection, access the UI (192.168.1.254), type your user id & password in the login page, then connect. make sure that you are able to connect to the internet. then access the UI again, click on "advanced" choose PPP location. in the PPP location page, click on bridged mode, that will restart the modem automatically, & you will notice the modem's internet light will turn off. then you can connect the ativa router to this modem using manufacturer's instructions. you can now login to the router's page and make the necessary changes.

Need to hook up Belkin G wireless router to Motorola SB5120


Plug your cable line into your modem, make sure it's tight, but don't use a tool. Next plug the ethernet line from the modem to your PC ethernet port. Then plug in your power to the modem. Allow your modem to sync. Don't use the USB line at all. Do not even hook it up unless your computer doesn't have a working ethernet line. Don't run the disk either, it will only install the modem driver that is only used if you use USB.

If you have issues connecting after that, you may have to go into your ethernet adapter settings and make sure that it is using DHCP. DSL usually uses a different setting (PPP I think) and you will not be able to connect.

By the way, excellent choice in modems.
