Hi Support team, I use Modem Motorola SB100 with Linksys WAP54G, and DLink Wireless G DWA USB Adapter to connect to Linksys WAP from my PCDesktop. Connection from the PC to Linksys is ok but can't...


You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cable company says modem is working problem is

If you have internet access trought the modem and if you're not connecting to the internet with the router it might be a configuration inside of the dlink router.
Usually tech support wont help you with the routers.
but i can help you with this.

if the connection its set up and the wireless signal its not strong enough yes you'll need to replace the router, that's what happened with mine :S.
The signal was really weak.

I have cable internet but my modem does not have a cable input

That is correct. The 2wire (1000-400108-001) Wireless Router
HomePortal 1800HW residential gateway is a high performance ADSL modem and a router. It is NOT a cable modem.
Your router has a connection for a telephone cable (DSL), but since you have cable, this can't work for you.

What you need is either a cable modem (like this) AND a router (like these) or a combined device (like this).

My advice: Do not buy a combined device - get them separately. You can find them used or new on craigslist - don't rent them from your provider. I have a Motorola Surfboard SB5100 Cable Modem (around 30$) and a Linksys WRT54G router (around 25$) and they work like a charm since 5 years.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

I'm trying to hook up a second computer in my son's room. Problem - how do I connect the second computer to my Comcast cable router which is a Motorola SB5100 so he can get internet over the cable?

In the picture, it looks like a wireless router. In that case, his computer just needs a wireless card to get the internet. Or, you can hard wire it directly from the modem to the computer, if you don't have a wireless card for the computer.

Motorola SB5100 and linksys router connection

The only thing that you need to setup on your Linksys for it to work with cable is to make sure that DHCP is enabled on the router.  You will need to plug your router into the modem via the ethernet cable and then plug your neighbors pc into a link port on the router (the cable modem plugs into the internet port)  You will also need to follow the reboot procedure.  Power everything off. 
1: Turn on the surfboard and wait about 1 minute for the surfboard to make a connection with your ISP (the link light should come on).
2:Turn on your router and wait for your router to sync up with the surfboard . 3: Turn on your computer. Whenever you plug anything into a cable modem, you must recycle power to the modem.  It "remembers" the last device that was plugged into it, so it's memory needs to be cleared.

Can I use 2WIRE 2701HG-B router in COX internet connection

No. A router has 2 main interface types WAN (for the internet connection side, and LAN (for the home network side) the 'LAN' side often has up to 4 ports and wireless connectivity for the home network.

The most common routers available at electronics retail use a CAT-5 connection for the WAN ports and the LAN ports. Your DSL modem/router uses a phone line input for it's WAN port, which uses a signal type that is incompatible with the cable modem output.

If COX doesn't offer a router with the cable modem package, you can go and purchase and common brand of home networking router, and attach it to the output of the cable modem.

>Unplug the Ethernet cable at the of your computer and place it at the of the router under the Internet port.
>You should have another Ethernet port, connect the other end of that Ethernet cable to the LAN port1 and the other end to your computer.
>Access the configuration page of the router by typing on the address bar.
>On the login page. By default the Username is admin/Admin and leave the password blank and click ok.
>Once inside, click on Setup tab> then click Manual Setup
> Your connection type should be Dynamic DHCP IP
> Click on "Clone your PC Mac Address"
> Click on save settings
> Go Status and Under WAN check if you have values in the IP address. If you have value, then that mean you have an Internet connection by now. if you got all 0.. try calling your Dlink manufacturer to assist you on conneting your router to the Internet without running the CD or by doing it manually in short..

The 2wire dsl modem/router cannot be use with a another cable modem , since this 2wire device is also a modem/router and its made for the DSL conenction that's why it wont work with Cox cable, the best thing that you can do is to ask Cox to give a wireless modem/router like this 2wire so you can still use the wireless connection of your computer..

Hope that helps..........

Airlink router

Albert the unfortunate problem with cable modems is the equipment serial number. when your modem is deactivated by the company the serial number becomes locked in other words they view the modem as a loss and the only way to re-activate it is by a different user not your account. I know it is a stupid way of doing things but they think it will stop cable theft.. Goofy huh.. Anyway have a great day.. Be mucho blessed... mark

We have 2 gamming computers on our sb5100 moto and connected to the wrt150n. when one person is gamming and the other person is gamming on the other same game using the internet, the other computer ha

Well, since one is playing Battefield well, and the other is not, I do not think that the lag is from the connection, but from the machine itself.. Probably the NIC or the Processor tied to the NIC..

The first thing I would do is try upgrading the Drivers for the NIC.. If you are running this through a wireless connection, try hard wiring it directly to the router and see if you still have a degraded response.. If no, then it is the WiFi adapter that is causing the issue, and I would consider again, first updating the drivers, or replacing the WiFi Nic..

Lots to consider here, but those would be my first steps to take..
