Question about Arris SB5100 SURFboard DOCSIS 2.0 Cable Modem (50120900100)

1 Answer

Motorola SB5100 the problem im having is that i have two modems in the same house, when trying both at once they do not seem to work. One has to be switched off in order for the other one to work. Even tried one modem in another house across the road but still the same problem. I believe a problem might occur if its in the same house with two modems but in another house across the street it seems weird to me, please help many thanks.

Im having problems getting my modem to get online. The light wont come on.

What light does not come on? There is the power light and several other lights. Is there also an on/off switch on the modem itself?
