Yes, you may replace your cable modem. it is best to inform your ISP that it is defective since they may issue you another one if it is covered by the warranty.

"An error occurred during communication


As the name implies this is a DNS error. Try replacing the default DNS with IP addresses from the OpenDNS project, which supplies free DNS. Here are a couple to try: 208.67.222.222 or/and 208.67.220.220

Dns failed is coming while i am trying to open internet.


Use your web browser and LOGON to your modem/router administration page (check your modem/router manual for the correct address of your router). Navigate to Broadband or Internet status and check if your modem/router has managed to acquire the following from your ISP:

1) IP Address
2) Primary DNS Server Address
3) Secondary DNS Server Address

If you don't seem to have gotten any valid addresses, please check your ADSL/DSL/Cable for any lose connections, power-off/on router and try again.

If nothing helps, please call your ISP Tech Support as the problem may be with your service provider.

You need to call Time Warner and tell them that you need to activate your modem. I had to do this when I switched modems for Comcast, so this should solve the problem.

Can this be used as a 56k router? I need to have a temporary internet connection and it is only a basic connection because of the type of phone there is at the house. We tried to connect but I don't have...


The SB4100 is a digital modem that uses cable TV network to provide broadband Internet access, it can't work with an analog telephone line, for this type of Internet access (also called switched Internet connection), you need an analog internal or external 56K modem, and also you'll need a user name and password (an account) from the Internet provider service (ISP) ; for a temporary Internet connection maybe a prepaid cellular modem (GPRS, EDGE, 3G or 4G) USB type could help you better.

Hi all\r\n Newbie to servers, ive been given an computer with server 2003 loaded on it it has been through the first stage setup and now im with a few things, mainly when i run the email and internet...


DNS-servers translate names, such as 'www.fixya.com' to IP-addresses, because routing of IP-packets on the Internet is done using the IP-addresses, not by using the names of each computer.

If you have a router between your computers and your cable-modem (or DSL-modem), then the router can automatically supply the "Primary DNS Server" and "Secondary DNS Server" and "IP Address" to your server computer, if you configure the network-adapter on the server to "automatically obtain an IP Address".

As long as you leave your server running, the "dynamic" IP-address that it obtains will, in effect, become a "static" (namely "non-changing") IP-address.

I can't find the settings to enable a public IP for my dns server. Where are they or is there another way?


Telephone your ISP -- they can provide this information.

However, most ISPs use 'DHCP' ("Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol") which automatically provides IP-addresses of DNS-servers to any device (your computer, or your router) connected to the cable-modem.

What is the best router to buy for a SURFboard SB4100 Cable Modem?


For this one the best router that I can think that you can consider in using are this 2 model , for a regular wireless G router you can get this model WRT54G , but if you have a large house and needs a stronger and wider signal for the wireless computers you can get this WRT300N they are both from Linksys.
