Re: configuring ppoe connection with zoom modem

Your external (WAN) IP should be set to DHCP for most ISP's. Your internal IP will be the default gateway for everything in your LAN to get sent to. If you can log into the zoom with your browser, try that IP address for your gateway. If not can you let me know some more details on your zoom model.

I cant remember my login info for the surfboard modem site ( am i screwed??

not really....

the default for your modem is
username: admin
password :motorola

try logging with this first. if this doesn't work then you will have to do manual hard reset of router for default factory settings through either a reset button/pinhole on the back of router and holding it for at least 5 secs but be aware that it will wipe all internet settings and will have to be configured again.. if you don't know how to do that then not recommended to do hard reset. better call isp guys.

Bought a Belkin router model # f5d8326 4 v2 was told this worked for cable modems not working yet

Make sure the modem is configured properly so it would detect the router. Most of the time, modems now has DCHP capability, meaning it has the ability to hold the username and password you ISP has provided you. The most effective way of making modems work with routers is to bridge the modem first before connecting the router.

Bridging the modem is done by opening the interface of the modem. To pull up the interface of the modem, type the default gateway of the modem in the address bar of your browser(intenet explorer)

Look for the "connection configuration" button and choose "bridge ethernet" as the connection type.

Once the modem is bridged, connect the router to the modem, then configure the router to set the connection type to pppoe. Once done, type your username and pw your ISP have provided the save the settings. This should cpnnect you online..

Get no connection useing 6100 modem connected to wireless B router

Hi starman re westell 6100.

Hi i hope you have find solution with your issue ifnot let me walk you through on how to get it up and working.

First , you need to connect your modem directly to your computer. We need to access its Graphic Unit Interface by opening your browser and type onyour address bar its default gateway.

The def. gateway can be or depending what ISP youre connected to . For ATT broadband its / verizon broadband is  { onyour address bar : type in and hit Enter.

to check def gateway : you can go to start > run > cmd then enter > on DOS command type in ipconfig /all  then HIT enter > itl provide you your network list > your default gateway is your westell modem or if your linksys is connected than it should be you linksys.

Itl route you to your westell page. Try to go to  Broadband and choose connection or configure connection.button. Look for configure and by default you will see its in PPPoE> change it to bridged ethernet and save.

By enabling bridge to your modem w/c is westell youl have a chance to configure you linksys to PPPoE. 

Connect you westell to your linksys and on your computer try to check your default gateway as seen above. By default linksys can be access by typing in or Itl prompt you for UN and PW: by default your Username is : Blank and Password should be admin. { blank = dont type anything}

On your linksys SETUP page > by default it is set to DHCP or obtain IP address automatically. Pls change it to PPPoE and type in your UN and PW : username@isp { your ISP name}. and hit save settings or save.

Restart your linksys and try to browse to check fore connection.

For all types of modem such as westell : you need to set it to bridge mode first foryou wireless router to work ie linksys. Set linksys to PPPoE .. that should work .

For more detailed steps or questions re: this issue pls dont hestiate contact me. Best wishes.

Pls enable you Wireless Encryption for your home network security.

Ciao .

Modem automatically not configured ( Network Adapter)

This happens with almost all the modems and routers. You can try resetting the modem ( you can find the reset button at the back side or underneath the modem ). After the reset, the modem should get auto configured.

Thank you

Zoom adsl x6

If the Internet light is off it means you are not either authenticated at your provider or your configurations are wrong on the modem. If you go to your command prompt and type ipconfig and check your IP address and your default gateway. The IP address on your default gateway would be your router put that IP address on your browser and should be able to see your modem setting and any error messages that could help resolve your issue

you probably need to access the web management function for this modem. Using a PC connected to the modem, open a web browser and type into the address bar the address of the router/modem/gateway. This is usually or or If you cannot find this information, find the status of your ethernet connection on your computer (where it tells you you computer's IP and time connected etc). Here you will find a number labeled "Gateway" this is the number you want to type into your web browser.  Once you get this correct you will be prompted for a username and password (by default it will be admin, admin) then you should have access to the configuration of the modem.
Write back if you're unsure of any steps

No access to set up modem or router

you might have configured your lan settings wrongly.

If your modem was setup for DHCP then you configure your lan to receive IP address automatically, DNS automatically.

If DHCP is disabled on the modem, you have to USE static IP Address for your lan ip and default gateway should be your modem default ip.

the default IP for modem is usually
if DHCP is disabled on the modem the sys ip is

So Configure your LAN setting as follow and Type in the address url.

Lan Settings:
IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default Gateway:

click ok.
and type the above url, press enter the modem will ask you for username and password.

Good Luck.
