For the manual go to HP.com and look up your laptop by model number and download it. Since your on a cable connection which means u are always connected all you need a network cable from modem to laptop. There is a network port in the back of the laptop

How do I bypass my router and connect my motorola sb5101 to my laptop?


use an ethernet cable and connect the modem with your PC
power cycle the modem to make it recognize your PC
At your PC, http://192.168.100.1 with username and password admin/admin to check the result. If your PC cannot get to that IP, you need to use ipconfig /renew command or simply reboot your PC.

How to connect my motorola surfboard sb5101 cable modem ot my ps3


Hi turn both modem and PS3 off. Then connect the ethernet cable from the modem to the PS3 and then turn the PS3 first. Then after the PS3 is completely on, then turn the modem on so the PS3 will get the modem's IP adress.
I recommend you get a router and connect it to the modem and the PS3 to the router. It's way better. I hope this helps.

You need to input IP and DNS information in windows. I can only help you where to input but you need to contact your ISP for IP address.

Hi, follow the steps below to configure MR814 with your motorola surfboard:

CONNECTIONS:

2. Connect the computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports. Please make sure that there is no direct connection between the modem and the computer (either using Ethernet cable or USB cable).
3. Power off the modem and the router after making the connections.
4. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.
RECONFIGURE:
1. Open the browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
2. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.0.1
3. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
4. Click on 'Basic settings' from the left menu and select 'Use Computers MAC Address' from 'router MAC Address' section.
5. Click Apply.
6. Once it updates the settings then power off the modem and the router. Power on the modem and wait for the lights, then power on the router.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Motorola surfboard sb5101 only gives me a connection speed of 12Mbs. Can I get more?


if you use the usb cable can only be sure your connection is 12Mbps, try to use lan cable that you certainly can. I also use the usb only 12Mbps, but can I use lan cable I can be more than that
