You can ignore the CD. You don't need any kind of software to hook up a cable modem. Modems do not have anything to configure. Plug in your cable line, wire it to your router (or a computer) with an ethernet cable and you'll be good to go. If you have a static IP you'll just need to enter that info into the router. If you didn't specifically order a static IP from your ISP then you have a dynamic IP and don't need to worry about it.
step 1 : Turn the Motorola Surfboard SB5120 Cable Modem so that the back of it is accessible to you. There's no need to disconnect any of the cables.
step 2 : Find the "Reset" button on the modem. It's a small recessed button located between the USB port and the cable outlet.
step 3: Use a pointed instrument to push the button. Hold it for 10 to15 seconds to allow time for the modem's indicator lights to go off.
step 4 : Release the Reset button. The lights will gradually begin to come on as the modem connects to the communications channels between the cable provider, the computer and the Internet provider. When all the connections are made, the lights will stablize.
step 5 : Release the Reset button. The lights will gradually begin to come on as the modem connects to the communications channels between the cable provider, the computer and the Internet provider. When all the connections are made, the lights will stablize.

Yes. This means to say that you need to install all software that came with the modem, contained in a disc before connecting (installing) USB cable or anything else. After installation of the software and computer is restarted you can now then connect all peripherals for modem connection.
Download the manual from the link and review page 7 for ethernet connection.
Notice particularly the back of the device. There are four connection points to plug things in the one on the left with DSL is where cable with the phone connectors connects the phone jack to the speedstream 5200. On the right the round connector with the pin is where the power goes. Next to the power connector to the left is a USB connector. In between usb connector and the DSL port is an ethernet connector. One way to avoid the need for the USB software os to use the ethernet connector bu connecting an ethenet cable (wider connector that fits snugly in both ports one on the Speadstream 5200 and the other probably present on your computer.
