Hi intriguedkiw;

Yes this is fairly simple. Open up your network connections and delete the icon for the local area connection to the Linksys router, and click on Add new connection to create a new connection to the Cable modem. The add wizard will walk you through connecting to the modem, just fill out the questions correctly, and you should be good to go.

Good Luck,

Mark

What kind of router do I need to get so I can get wifi out of a Motorola Surfboard SB5101 Cable Modem ? My PC isn't wifi compatible but I have other equipment that are.


You will want to get a "Wireless N" Router, also known as an 802.11n Router. Price range is up to you, but here is a relatively cheap one that performs well: http://goo.gl/Szjovd

How do I bypass my router and connect my motorola sb5101 to my laptop?


use an ethernet cable and connect the modem with your PC
power cycle the modem to make it recognize your PC
At your PC, http://192.168.100.1 with username and password admin/admin to check the result. If your PC cannot get to that IP, you need to use ipconfig /renew command or simply reboot your PC.

You need to disable the UPnP function on the Belkin router. Log into the router(192.168.2.1), and look under System Settings. If you haven't changed the password on the router, the default password is blank, i.e., no password.

Setting Up a Wireless Network


You can still use your existing Linksys router with your cable modem. In fact the router your have is designed to work with DSL/Cable Broadband connections.

1. Make sure to properly connec the devices in your network. Modem will be connected to the Internet port of the router. Then, laptop will be connected to one of the 4 Ethernet ports of the router. For initial setup of your router with modem, you need to hardwire laptop to the router.
2. Press and hold reset at the back of the router for about 15 seconds.
3. After 15 seconds turn off the router and then turn off the modem. Wait for a minute.
4. Power on modem and wait for the lights to be ready.
5. When modem lights are on, turn on router.
6. There should be 4 lights on. Power should be steady green. Internet, WLAN and Ethernet port.
7. Checked if you have Internet connectivity on your laptop while it is wired to the router.
8. If Internet is working, disconnect laptop from wired connection to the router and check available wireless network that laptop can detect.
9. The default wireless network name that the Linksys router broadcasts is "linksys". Connect to it which is an unsecured wireless network.
10. Once you are successfully connected, check Internet.

Hope this helps!

No and why doesn't your internet provider... provide a cable modem?? Did you just ask them to enable broadband internet service? So now you'll have to provide your own cable modem.

If what you say is correct you need a cable modem like a motorola surfboard from BestBuy.... then the cable modem plugs into your Linksys router and your PC's plug into the linksys router also.
