Question about Arris Touchstone 450a (CM450) Modem
Since I switched to a bundled cable pkg. I've been unable to set up my network. My netgear router can't seem to work with the arris modem, and my belkin adapter can't pick up the signal. It's driving me nuts as I've tried everything. Cable says it's the router, they say it's the modem, they say it's the adapter etc. Cable said their system is too fast for my router. Help me!
Providors use mac address to identify the modems used on their systems. That is why, if you add a wireless router, the router software should have the ability to let you copy the MAC address of the modem. That way the providor only sees one mac address.

This will work i suppose.it did for my aris cable modem.
Remove the Backup battery
Unplug power from the modem
Plug the new router into cable modem (while the modem is still off)
Wait for the router to have its lights runnning.
power the cable modem.
put battery back in
this worked me when i switched from my buffalo router to dlink and tried also with directly to my computer and it let it work.
i guess the cable modem remembers mac addressses or something and if it doesn't match then it won't go through (but that's a guess)

Cable dsl same thing. Did you switch providers and get new modem from them? If so. Just delete previous netowrk and install new one let pc discover new one. Also, with your router you got a disc. It should install correctly. Perhaps it is previous network that is hindering you.
