SOURCE: My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!

it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.

SOURCE: Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router

Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Signal indicator did not blink


What model and version is your router and what is the name of the indicator not blinking.


If you are referring to the link light, some routers use that as only a connection to the modem light and once the connection is established it stays on solid, and some routers also use it as a traffic light that blinks when there is traffic moving across the router to the modem. Without the make and model it is impossible to know which case wold be correct.

Are the lights on the router stay on or blinking ?


The power light should stay solid as long as the router is plugged in. The WAN light and LAN lights are solid when you are connected, and the connection is idle. The lights blink when traffic is present. The lights are off when there is no connection.

My Motorola sb5101 won't come online how do I troubleshoot this? My cable connection is fine. When the modem boots up the green power light comes on and stays on followed by the receive light and the send...


These modems are very tricky. When this type modem goes into stand by modem that indicates that you do have a connection to your internet service provider. The reason you cant get online is because all internet access is disabled wile the modem is in standby. If you look closely there is a button located on the top of the modem. This is the stand by button. If you hit that button it should take the modem out of stand by mode and reestablish your connection to the internet.

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

Is a Belkin N+ wireless router compatable to a Motorola modem SB5100?


No - one it is a modem, the other is a router.
The modem 'translate' the data as it comes into your network.
Routers connect computer (direct traffic).

Internet connection with arris modem does not go any farther than local


Check if:
  • the power cable is plugged in firmly in both ends?
  • reset the cable modem (use the reset button at the back of the modem)
If all led's stay off, and you are 100% sure that there is electricity on the powersocket, then there must be a technical problem. Contact UPC
Switch off the stand-by button, and you will be online again .
If the power-led is on and the online-led is blinking, then the stand-by button is active.

If the cable-led is continuosly on, then there is no data to/from the cable interface. Control if the cable is firmly connected
Reset the cable modem
If, after reset, there is still no data transfer, contact UPC.
If the Ethernet-led is off , then the ethernet link is disconnected.
Check if the PC or hub is firmly connected and/or powered


Ethernet link connected, but no traffic. Check if there is no problem with the hub, or check if there is no firewall blocking the traffic. Check also the tcp/ip settings

OK. First of of all, the only light that should stay solid on your router is the power light. All the others are activity lights. They show network traffic through the connections. Second, if you're going to power cycle the router it's a good idea to power cycle the modem as well. Just so you know, I know they sell and promote all kinds of wireless things for xbox 360 but it's best to run it with an ethernet cable. Better results. So, try this: Unplug your modem and router, wait about 60 seconds. When all the lights have come back on the modem (excluding the activity light ) plug in your router. See what happens and let me know.If this fixes your problem, please rate this as fixed. If it did not, then don't rate it yet. Just add a comment and I'll be glad to help you further. Thanks.
