Be sure that your cable company has enabled your internet. Power down the cable modem, power down any routers and computers. Start cable modem first, after internet connectivity is indicated, power up the router (if you have one) and then power upi the pc

Can you connect if you are directly wired into the router?

You may want to try using a ball point pen and pressing the reset button on the back of the arris. Let it reboot and try again.

Some netgear routers come with the wireless disabled out of the box, so you need to be hard wired when you run the CD or if you try to connect through your browser 192.168.1.1

How to connect netgear fs108 to cable modem


leeb..... switches cannot be connected to the Cable modem.... because NAT will not be enabled in cable modem....so there wont be any DHCP server present in the cable modem....
Nat will be enabled only in DSL modem like AT&T verizon etc....So DHCP server will be present inside DSL modem...that is the reason why switches can be connected only to the DSL modem....
With NAT enabled modem, switch will work as a switch.... With NAT disabled modem, switch will work as a hub.... This is the difference....
Any doubts further ? please clarify with me.... I am ready to help you....

I have my main computer set yp with arris router


  • You can use both Ethernet and USB interface to connect two PCs simultaneously with one cable modem.

  • If you plan to go wireless (and maybe connect more computers), you have to purchase a router to split/share the internet connection coming from the modem.

I have a arris tm602 modem, HOW DO I CONFIGURE MY NET GEAR ROUTER FOR INTERNET CONNECTION


Cable modems bond to what they are plugged into, so you have the modem plugged into a computer and it is working fine. Then you want to unplug the ethernet cable from the computer and plug it into another device such as a netgear router. Then you find no matter what you do it will not work.

Now normally to break this bond to the computer so that it will bond with the router you would simply unplug the electrical power from the cable modem, wait for it to sync back up with your ISP's CMTS, power up your router which you would have connected via the internet or wan port, and you would be up and running.

You may have even did this with your Arris TM602. Why isn't your router pulling an IP address? The reason is simple, pulling the power cord did not really remove power since the modem has battery back up.

In order to make it release its bond to your computer, so it can bond with the router you need to either push the reset button on the back of the modem while still powered up or remove its battery pack while unplugged from power.

So try again, this time push reset on the modem. This question was posted in January so I am sure buttercup is all fine by now but maybe this will help someone else.

Plug the ethernet net cord into the arris ethernet port. plug the other end into the router where it says "internet"

Plug a ethernet cable from one of the router ports to the computer.

First start up the arris modem, then power up the router, then start the computer.

Getting error message: Invalid Ip address


This would normally mean that you have assigned the IP address manually but have also given that same IP to another computer and they are fighting about it.

If this is the case then just check your IP allocations and find out which computer is using the same IP and change it to one that is not in use.

It may also mean that your router is trying to use the same IP as your modem

With just your modem connected to the computer

go to the START MENU / RUN then type CMD and press enter.

Now in the black screen type IPCONFIG /ALL

Take note of the numbers esp in the default gateway, that is your modem)

Now with just the router connected by wire do the same thing.

This time the default gateway is your router if it is the same as your modem then you need to alter it in your router,

You haven't given a model so you will have to work this bit out yourself but your are looking for a setting on your router that starts with the same number you got.
If your default router gateway was lets say 192.168.1.1 then that is what you would be looking for. Change the third block so now it reads 192.168.2.1 and save the settings. This would clear any conflict between modem and router.

If you have assigned IP's to computers they would need to be changed to reflect the routers new IP and again you would just change the third block in the allocated IP to a 2

If in doubt read this a couple of times or print it out.

Only real trouble shooting I can suggest is power cycle the modem and router. If you have the Comcast Digital Voice modem make sure you push the reset button on the back as there is a battery in the unit and unplugging won't do anything.
