You need to purchase a wireless router. The router will have 5 ports on the back, one in and 4 out. The wire that you have going from your modem to your computer will go to the "in" port on the router. The out ports can be used for wired connections, and the wireless antenna will connect to any wireless computers.

Any computer that you want to connect wirelessly to your new router will need to be wireless-ready. For a desktop computer, you will need to buy and install a wireless PCI network card. Most laptops have built-in wireless.

You can buy a wireless router at most "big box" stores, like Best Buy, Office Depot, even WalMart sometimes carries them. A wireless router will cost between $75 and $150.

SOURCE: Can this modem with a dongle/adapter of some sort


The Motorola SB5100 SURFboard DOCSIS 2.0 Cable modem cannot be connected wireless as it does not has the wireless feature.

You can check its specification from the link below
Motorola SB5100 Specification

However if you want to make it wireless, you need to connect the Cable modem to a Router ( this makes a sub-network within your home network ) and you can connect your PC/laptop or any other device wireless to the router.

This technique is expensive as you will be purchasing a router and setting it up by calling your ISP ( Internet Service Provider )

Find network key on sb6141

The term "Network Key or Passphrase" indicates your printer is asking for a WiFi password, but the SB6141 is not a WiFi capable device at all, it's just a Cable-to-Ethernet device. So then, you need to look at your WiFi router, which should be connected with an Ethernet cable to your SB6141. If this doesn't match your setup, you'll either need to get a WiFi router hooked up (that process will contain the answer to your question) or simply use an Ethernet cable for your printer.

The SSID is the name you created for your wireless or wired network, while the security key is the password you created. They are not written on the modem unless you placed them there yourself. Modems / routers do have information on stickers on the bottom though, if you require any of that information.

Can this be used as a 56k router? I need to have a temporary internet connection and it is only a basic connection because of the type of phone there is at the house. We tried to connect but I don't have...

The SB4100 is a digital modem that uses cable TV network to provide broadband Internet access, it can't work with an analog telephone line, for this type of Internet access (also called switched Internet connection), you need an analog internal or external 56K modem, and also you'll need a user name and password (an account) from the Internet provider service (ISP) ; for a temporary Internet connection maybe a prepaid cellular modem (GPRS, EDGE, 3G or 4G) USB type could help you better.
