Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)
Ok Simple setup here. One ethernet cable from the cable modem to the WAN port on the belkin wireless router. The Belkin Wireless Router has 4 additional ports, which I connect another ethernet cable to it. That line goes to a 10/100mbp 8 port HUB wich of course brances out to the system systems on my net work. This is the way you are suppose to do it. takes less than what 5 to 10 minutes. Comcast modem has no settings you can configure, it has a MAC address stored in the memory. The Wireless router will not talk with the modem or vice versa. This 6 hour job has gotten me nowhere. I need to get the Cable modem to talk to the router which will spit out DHCP addresses. Issue is the Cable modem acts as a DHCP server too. Even when I turn DHCP off on the router's side, nothing.
Find out what the subnet of the current router you want to connect the wireless router to. your isp router probably has 192.168.1.1 something similar, which will give out ip addresses of 192.168.1.100-192.168.1.254, change the belkin routers internal ip address to 192.168.2.1 and turn off dchp server, that should solve your problems, save settings, power down belkin router then power back on.

If the modem is actually passing out DHCP, then you have to connect the modem to the router 4 port lan side and not the wan port. Give the router a static ip like 192.168.1.2 and you can talk to it and configure the wireless features.

Step 1 Position your Belkin wireless G router.
Place your wireless G router in a wide open and central location. Don't connect the power plug into the router, yet. Make sure your computer is turned off.
Step 2 Connect all the devices.
Find the Ethernet cable that connects your PC to the modem. Unplug the Ethernet cable from your PC and insert it into the wireless G router's WAN port. You should have an additional Ethernet cable that came with your router. Take this cable and plug one end into one of the LAN ports on the router. Then connect the other end to your PC's Ethernet port.
Step 3 Turn on your modem, router, and PC.
Plug the power plug adapter into the modem. Turn on the modem. It'll take approximately 30 seconds for the modem to boot up. Connect the power plug adapter to the router and the other end into a power strip or outlet. Like the modem, it'll take about 30 seconds for the router to boot. Turn on your PC.
Step 4 Verify lights are on for your devices.
Make sure the following lights are on for your router: power, WAN, and LAN light. If you don't see any of them lit, confirm these devices are turned on. Make sure the Ethernet cable connections are installed correctly.
Step 5 Install and configure software.
Use the setup wizard application to configure your Belkin wireless G router. Set up features, such as creating your password and setting up your time zone. Continue to follow the setup wizard so you can configure ?other settings
