Question about Arris SURFboard SBG900 Wireless Router (DHSBG900)
I have a cable modem motorola sb5100 which was connected to my neighbour pc by a cable. I couldnt use it so I brought home wireless router linksys and connected it to the modem unplugging my neighbour. Now after setting up wireless internet my laptop connects fine and I have internet connection wirelessly. But when I try to plug my neighbour to the router so she can still use the internet via cable she doesnt have an internet although she is connected to the router.
There is no more place for plugs in the cable modem so it's either her connected or router (and I can use the internet wirelessly). I gave her all the network configuration to enter manually in her LAN connection but it still doesnt work. Is it any chance to make it work for both of us?
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.
