I am connected via ethernet cable to my cable modem (Motorola SB5100). I am connected but my browser doesn't display any websites. Except, what I found on Internet to try, is IP address. SO when I type yahoo IP then it goes up but URL don't. I tried already many things that I found on Internet but nothing helped. Do you think reinstalling WIndows again can help or is there anything easier to do???
And additional question-if I connect WI-Fi adapter to this cable modem can I use Internet wirelessly? Or cable modem is only cable modem???
you didn't mention which version of windows are using so i am going to assume that you have windows XP if that is not the case then let me and i can provide you with an alternate solution.
1. click on the start button 2. click on run 3. type ncpa.cpl 4. right-click on local area connection(if using ethernet cable) 5. single-left-click on internet protocol (tcp/ip) 6. click on properties 7. click on set dns servers manually instead of obtaining automatically 8. enter 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 as the primary and secondary servers. 9. restart the computer
if it still doesn't work 1. click on the start button 2. click on run 3. type cmd 4. click ok 5. type nslookup www.google.com 6. hit enter

Sounds like your modem is in a provisional state. Walled garden is simply a tool to provision a modem..... a way that a cable or ADSL company uses to verify that the equipment is associated with a paying customer. Call your ISP if you are unable to access anything past that page via a browser. Chances are your provisioning record is lost, your modem has changed, there are too many devices connected directly to the modem, or there are other account issues such as nonpay status.
Before you call... Check your modem connections, most companies will not allow two IP addresses to be issued to one piece of equipment (modem) without an extra fee, some companies will not allow two devices to be connected to a modem at all. If you have a device connected USB to the modem and another device connected through the ethernet port...disconnect one. I suggest going Ethernet and using a router if you wish to have more than one device connected to your modem.
Make sure the modem that worked yesterday is the one you are using today. If you've recently replaced your modem, you may need to call your cable company to register the new modem. One modem = one instance of service.
Check your bill due date. If your bill is past due, you may need to satisfy the past due balance before being allowed past the walled garden.
There is a configuration facility included with the modem that you should be able to access to help troubleshoot the connection.
The Cable Modem has three active interfaces, the HFC, the Ethernet and the USB and each
interface has both a MAC and an IP address associated with it. When operating normally it is the
IP address of the HFC interface that is used for diagnostic access to the modem. However the IP
address associated with the Ethernet interface is always available to the client side network,
unless it has been disabled by management command. This means that a PC on the client side
can access the WEB pages within the modem using the reserved address 192.168.100.1. This is
a non-routed address so it cannot be reached from the Internet (routed) side of the network
The SB5100 family of modems contain an internal DHCP server, which is active until the modem
registers with the CMTS. In the case of a problem that prevents the modem from completing its
registration, the modem can still give an IP address to the client PC to enable diagnostics access.
This address is given with a very short lease (around 10 seconds) so that as soon as the
registration does complete the client PC obtains its proper IP address from the core network
When the SurfBoard modem is powered up and connects to the internet on the WAN interface, it automatically gets an IP address from your ISP. When another machine is powered up and is connected to the modem via a USB cable, it is automatically using the WAN IP address to communicate with the world. If it is connected via the Ethernet connection, the modem automatically issues it its own IP address for use on the internal network via DHCP. The modem's internal Ethernet connection is 192.168.0.1. The next machine powered on will normally get an IP address of 192.168.0.2.
No, the SB5100 is just a cable modem, not a wireless router. You will need to keep your sb5100 but you will need to purchase a wireless router if you want wireless on your laptop. If you can also plug your laptop into the sb5100 via an ethernet cable for your internet connection. Linksys and Belkin and others make wireless routers that you can use for your wireless connections.
Your internet service provider only able to change your external ip address. The only way to change it own by using proxy sites or ip hide software's. Online proxy sites are simple and free of cost . But they worked for some periods only. So you can always check your ip is hide or not at Ip-Details.com

ya u should have a router instead of a modem because modem provide only one ip address>and there is no DHCP server in the switch or hub>so buy one router which has 4 ether net port and connect it directly to the modem and connect ur two pc's behind the router then both will get a seperate ip address from the router both will go online
the connection is
modem-->ether net cable to the inter net port on the router-->and two ether net cable from both pc's to the 1 and 2 ether net jack on the router reboot all the devices>and modem+router+pc's then it will work>rate me solved if its helps thx
