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.
