Question about Motorola Computers & Internet
Hello: I would like to know if the Motorola SB6121 cable modem is made to work with Windows 8. I looked at one and also the SB6141 at our local Wal-Mart and noticed that the SB6141 said Windows 8 compatible on the box but the SB6121 made no mention of being compatible. I have a Dell Inspiron 660s desktop with Windows 8 and I'm going to use Time Warner cable as the internet service provider. The SB6121 is less expensive than the SB6141 so I'm hoping to save a little money. Thanks for any reply.

SOURCE: Verizon DSL spotty service
to answer your first question, call verizon to fix the line. it is dropping. Second have verizon change a dsl and test it out.
as far as the tab on the CAT-5, the tab is to lock the cable in place, without it, it will work but you have no insurace as to the connection status. (need cable with tab).

This usually means something is not correct with your incoming signal. If your cable wire into the modem is being run off an amplifier in the wall this could be effecting your service. If the signal is too strong the modem won't be able to communicate for internet.
You could check the incoming wire to see if it is running off an amplifier. If it is you would need to run a new line that is not on the amplifier. I would recommend comcast coming out to check the signal frequency and make the necessary adjustments.

SOURCE: Not recognized by cable modem
Turn everything off for 2 minutes, cable modem, router and pc.
Turn on modem and wait 2 minutes for the modem to sync to TW.
Turn on router after 2 mins and wait until the router syncs with the modem.
Turn on PC
It sounds like your router lost its connection to the cable modem, which happens from time to time. TW will not help with your router. I worked for a cable co and the router and modem losing sync was the at least 70% of the calls. FYI cable doesn't use DSL,just the phone co.

Is this a new issue or a recent harware/cable change or did this use to work and now has the disconnect issues.
Ensure that your cable has NO Splitters (especialy outside) from the Drop outside to your modem.
Check all cableing between Computer and Modem to Cable Drop.
You can also look at the Modem Status Page to check your UpStream and DownStream signals. You may have to have someone come out to check out the line running from your house to the pole (or pedestal if its underground)? Many factors can cause an outside cable to deteriorate, and when that happens you can end up with alot of signal leakage and frequent disconnects. And that goes for both overhead and underground lines. Good Luck, and post back if you need more help. (try to include your Modem Status Logs)
