SOURCE: Thomson SpeedTouch 576 wireless modem router

Connect your wireless modem router Sign on to AOL. Download the AOL Easy Installer for Thomson 576 Wireless Modem Router. When prompted to save the file to a location select an appropriate place (desktop is a good example). Once the AOL Easy Installer is downloaded, double click the file: ST_V1.exe This will launch the modem router installer and show the "Welcome" screen. Click the Start Installation button to continue. If you wish to cancel, click the Cancel Installation button. Read the next page carefully. The text advises to close any running programs, ensure to close your AOL software also. Click Next to continue. Please Note: Connect a DSL filter to each telephone socket that is in use for telephones, dial-up modems and fax machines, etc. If you require additional DSL filters, order online at AOL Keyword Broadband Extras. Notes: Ensure to use AOL 8.0 or above. The AOL account to be used for the modem router set up must be a General (18+) account. This installer is not supported with a modem router containing beta firmware.

SOURCE: Router Connectivity

It will be one of two things or both - either your computer is not setup for DHCP or your router is using the same IP address as your ISP or both.

To check ISP IP address connect your computer to your modem then: from start => run => CMD (hit enter after this)
a command window opens, type "ipconfig /all" without the quotes.
The line with "IP address" gives you your ISP IP addr.
Compare this with what you get from your router manual if they are the same then do the following:

To configure your computer to use a DHCP IP address, go to the Control panel => network connections => Properties (right click on your default connection) => double click Internet protocol (From general tab) => (a new window pops up) from the general tab ensure that "obtain an IP address automatically" is selected.

To change the IP address of your router check your manual and do the following:
IP Addr => 10.10.1.1
Sub net mask => 255.255.0.0
Default gateway => IP address from your ISP
Make sure to the router is set to act as a DHCP server.

You should be up and running.

SOURCE: ARRIS Modem + D-Link router = no internet

when you are on Cable Internet with a "modem" only connected directly to the computer, what the ISP see is the computer's MAC Address (command prompt -> type ipconfig and hit enter).

put a router (which has it's own MAC Address) in-between and the ISP wont let you cause it sees the router not the computer.

check physical connection: cable modem -> router -> computer(hard wire for this troubleshooting)

access the d-link gui and locate the “Clone MAC Address" button (supposed to clone the computers MAC Address - verify if it's the same), save settings & reboot the router.

SOURCE: setup router with vonage device and dsl modem

For the best call quality, I suggest you connect the Vonage router to the DSL modem, and if necessary, connect the Linksys router behind that. Why are you using a second router, though - you probably just need a switch or hub, if you're trying to connect more machines. Small networks rarely require more than one router. MaverickSolutions.biz may be able to provide additional support if you can give us more details about your installation.

Does the motorola surboard sbc6580 modem have phone connetion


Hello:

Neither the SBG900 nor the SBG6580 have a phone jack.

A cable modem with a phone jack is called an eMTA (Embedded Multimedia Terminal Adapter: Cable modem Wikipedia the free encyclopedia.)

Most cable companies will only have one alternative to their own equipment when it comes to eMTAs. For example, Comcast only works with the Arris 722G: Customer Owned Arris 722G FAQ Comcast Help and Support Forums, and they'll insist that it can only work if you bought it from Best Buy.

If you wanted to keep your SBG900 or SBG6580 and have VOIP phone service, look into a service like Ooma.

My Motorola router SBG6580 is hacked . how do I block the hacker ?


In the router table you should be able to see the offender.. from there you can block them but they may just go to another computer to log on.... But this takes experience.
Most important change your password.. words (wifi) too.. use wifi encryption .. and make sure that remote login on the modem is off.
This is the first level of defense It could be more serious..

How to log in to router


Open an internet browser, in the address area type in 192.168.0.1 (this is the normal address used by the router). Once the router access screen appears try usinfg the factory default login USER = ADMIN, PASSWORD = MOTOROLA.

If this does not work you can try using the reset button on the rear of the router to reset it's setting to factory default settings and try the above method again.

NOTE: If you are unsure about anything you can also try asking your ISP how to access the router settings. (If you received the router from an ISP). Otherwise use the manual at this internet location for more information. http://www.midcocomm.com/_files/files/SBG6580.pdf

Have an SBG6580 and purchased a NETTALK DUO (VOIP). Which is trying to connect but can't. Tech support at Nettalk tried to change some settings but it looks like modem is still blocking the port. ...


The only way I got the NETTALK DUO to work keeping my SBG6580 is to use it in cascading mode with my old Linksys router. When I plugged the DUO into the Linksys it worked great.
