For SMC7904WBRA :: How to use Cable Modem on ADSL router/modem combo?

Hello, Sorry to post this on the wrong product, but the SMC7904WBRA isnt listed on fixya. I have a SMC7904WBRA2 ADSL Modem/Router combo. Recently I changed ISPs, and now I use a cable modem. I'd like to know how do I set the combo to work as a router only, and how I configure it. If I just plug my new cable modem on the router, only one of the computers get internet access, not the others, and I don't know why. The Cable Modem is a Motorola SBV5120.

Did you have DSL prior? if so, was the MAC address cloned to the router? You may need to check that setting, its pretty common with this type of setup

I recently moved from Cable ISP to DSL ISP service. For the DSL service, I was asked to configure my Router to use PPPoE with Dynamic IP addressing. I also provided the router with my username and password...

The reason you have no internet is because the router is specifically for cable. your description contains errors what i think you mean is that you have gone from cable dsl to an adsl, correct me if i am wrong. Basically your modem connected to your router via an ethernet cable and then the router fed the wireless signal to your wireless devices or via ethernet through the 4 ports in the back. With adsl you have a feed from your phone line to an adsl modem so the only way for you to get the dsl router working is to have two ethernet leads connecting to your pc, one from the modem to the pc and one from the pc to the router. You would also need to setup internet sharing on the pc thats connected to both devices.

Either do it that way or buy an adsl router

Sitecom WL-342 Wireless Router won't access internet.


Make sure there is a network cable going from your ADSL modem into the WAN connection of the router.

If the ADSL modem is wireless, then it is also a router in whihc case you will want to bypass the WL-342 all together.

From the walljack to the modem, use the gray cable.

Disconnect the yellow cable from the modem to the PC.

Use the black cable from the router to the modem (where the PC was originally connected).

Use the 2 yellow cables for the PC and the laptop going to any of the 4 ports of the router.

Hope this helps!

Will comcast support Actiontec - ADSL Modem with 802.11g Wireless Router and 4-Port Ethernet Switch

Comcast will not support that kind of modem. Comcast is a Cable ISP thus the ADSL modem won't work with them because ADSL modem is for DSL providers. Cable Company uses different protocol than DSL. But Comcast will provide you the cable modem if you subscribe to them.

Help me please

I think Not.
There are ADSL wireless routers however.
I guess your purpose is to make your ADSL modem available wirelessly, you can connect the
modem via lan line to the wireless and use that as a router.

It's always smart to set a restore point in case something goes wrong during installation of any program. For wireless connection from laptop or PC: install router software on computer. Reboot computer. In browser address bar enter This brings up a window for user name and password. Enter "admin" for both. This allows you to change many settings including Changing SSID(Router Name), User name and password. Enabling WEP or WPA security. Hope this Helps, Good Luck..!!

For SMC7904WBRA :: How to use Cable Modem on ADSL router/modem

Looks like your device does not support playing router for cable internet. Would recommend you get an actual router, or alternately if you have a computer with two network adaptors you could plug one into cable modem, plug other in to LAN side of router, then configure turn Windows Internet Connection service, will need to disable the DHCP service on the router. I highly recommend you get a real cable/dsl router to do this tho. Linksys 54g series has been one of my favorites. Router homepage on SMC site.
