Question about Arris SB5102 SURFboard Cable Modem

I need to download a Win7 Motorola SB5102 cable modem driver via this XP laptop

I need to download a Win7 Motorola SB5102 cable modem without it installing onto this XP Laptop (I need it in a flashdrive) to transfer over to my Win7 machine. I have to use this XP laptop. Can I do this? I have just installed a vista raspppoe.sys driver to replace the problem raspppoe. It worked to solve error 615. (Yay!) But, I am still not connected to the net on that machine. Now the Broadband connection cannot find the modem. (Error 797) So, now I have to find the driver on this XP laptop and transfer it over to the Win7.

Yes, you can do it.
Downloading the driver will result in a file you can copy over to the flashdrive.
Just do not double-click on the file, because that will start the installation process.
In the unlikely case that the file auto-starts the installation process, you will normally have the option to Cancel the installation.

SOURCE: System can't Install the MODEM Drivers

You would need to install the USB drivers from the Motorola disk as windows does not have these USB drivers natively.

If you go to the link below and look under the software section you should be able to download the setup CD that will configure the connection between your modem and the router.

Can you give me a link to download a driver for Protax DC500t camera that works on windows7? The disk I have only works on windows xp Thanks, Peter


If your Windows7 is x32 version, then your driver should work in it. But if you have x64 version, you'll get some trouble to install driver for XP in Win7 PCs. I've stuck the same problem like you, but my case was modem problem. Programs like game or other application that can be installed in XP usually can be installed in Win7 64 bit and extracted in Program Files (x86), but driver case is an exception.
I've search via google but I got nothing. Actually, there is a way to install XP driver in Win7 which is use XP Mode in Win7, but you must upgrade your OS to Win7 Ultimate (I think, see microsoft website to make sure) so you can use this mode.
or
you can install two OS in your PC, Win7 and Win XP maybe. When you want to install driver for XP or if you want to do some work related to this driver, you can start up with XP OS, but if you want to do other work, use Win7.
This is so unconvenient, but better than you can't connect your camera to your PC.
Good luck Peter !

Hope this help and be kind to rate my answer please.

You need to download the drivers for Windows 7 for all your hardware - including the dialup modem and the sound from the laptop manufacturer's website.

Cant find the RESET button on the SB5102


the Surfboards do not have a reset button. The only sure way to reset it is to disconnect the power and any other cables for at least 12 hours to allow the board to completely discharge.

Hope this helps you on your journey

Let me know if you have anything else.

I also would recommend you use ethernet since you do not have to install any software to make it work.

You will need to reboot the cable modem when ever you change how its connected also Ethernet/USB or if it was connected to a different PC.
