Question about Arris SB5100 SURFboard DOCSIS 2.0 Cable Modem (50120900100)
I cant seem to set up my ps3 with this router do i need a wep key or something
I got mine working, & I feel like a total idiot. In my case, it was a very simple fix.
I am using a wired connection. I had my laptop connected to the modem & simply took the ethernet cable I had plugged in to my laptop & plugged it into the PS3. THAT was the problem. I did not reset or unplug the modem before changing from one piece of hardware to the other. The silly modem got confused & didn't know it should issue a new IP address.
No firewall, no router problem, just a simple "reset" of the modem.
The hard part to remember is that I will have to unplug or reset the modem EVERY time I switch between the PC & the PS3. EVERY TIME. That will get tiring very quickly.
I see a wireless connection in my immediate future! :)
Hope this helps.

Before you resort to other measures try with a cat5 cord first to the router
